Following one of the most impressive wins of the season, winning at Cameron Indoor Stadium against rival Duke, North Carolina is looking like an NCAA Tournament champion.

The Tar Heels have thrust itself back into the conversation for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with that win on Saturday night, and odds makers firmly are entrenched that Hubert Davis' group is more than capable of winning it all.

UNC is in a three-way race with Arizona and Tennessee for the final No. 1 seed come the 'Big Dance,' with a run to an ACC Championship in Washington D.C. in the ACC Tournament.

Here's the updated odds for the Tar Heels' hopes of an NCAA Championship:

North Carolina in mix for No. 1 seed in NCAA Tournament

The Tar Heels still have work to do, but the team has a compelling case to be a top seed come Selection Sunday, and odds makers are aware, giving North Carolina the fifth best odds to win it all this season.

UNC also has a favorable draw in the ACC Tournament, not playing a team that beat them this season until the semifinals at least, with that one team being No. 13 seed Georgia Tech.
