The signing of Michael Porter Jr. was followed by an insane jump in the national championship odds for Missouri men’s basketball next year.
Porter, the nation’s No. 1 recruit, signed with the Tigers on Thursday after committing in late March. Then on Friday, Bovada released new odds for the 2018 national championship. Missouri’s odds jumped from 250-1 to 28-1.

With Porter officially in the fold, Vegas gives Missouri the third-best chances of any SEC team to win it all. Only Kentucky (10-1) and Florida (25-1) rank ahead of the Tigers in the league.
Porter is a 5-star prospect and the nation’s top-ranked recruit. DraftExpress currently projects him as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
