With Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski’s retirementcame the perception that losing him could forever alter the Blue Devil’s standing as a perennial power.

The Force is with Duke

Despite bowing out to rival North Carolina in the Final Four meeting, both BetMGM and the Las Vegas SuperBook posted Duke as a future-book favorite next season.

BetMGM has the Blue Devils positioned alone as an 8/1 favorite, while the SuperBook lists the team as co-favorites with coach John Calipari’s young and talented Kentucky team at 10/1.
