Coming off a statement win over
The AP media panel kept the Tennessee Volunteers
POLL ALERT: Media panel sticks with Tennessee as No. 1 in AP Top 25, despite NCAA's pick of Duke as leader in tournament rankings: See the full poll: https://t.co/Bki4Cuzunw pic.twitter.com/mUugSrtmeL— AP Top 25 (@AP_Top25) February 11, 2019
The AP may still be on the fence for now, but luckily for the Blue Devils, the folks at FanDuel Sportsbook
Duke (+180) is still the odds-on favorite to win the NCAA Tournament come March, according to the latest tournament odds. Tennessee (+1200), on the other hand, finds itself tied with No. 6 Michigan (+1200) for fourth-best odds to win it all.

Michigan St. +1600
VA Tech +3600
Iowa St. +4200
There's still plenty of time for Duke to leapfrog the Volunteers in the rankings and, with three remaining ranked opponents to play (No. 22 Virginia Tech and No. 8 North Carolina twice), it has a strong enough remaining schedule to make it happen. However, it may need Tennessee to stumble a bit to close out the season.
