I'd call them a favorite, but I'm not discounting FSU either. As Scrap put it, both of his parents graduated from there and his HS buddy is going there. Leonard Hamilton has that connection and Cal already has Aaron Harrison and James Young on the wings. Wiggins would likely push one of them to the bench and given the extra bodies, he wouldn't be the "star" at Kentucky.
I guess it depends on which way to look at it. Come to Kentucky, be one of many and play on a team that will likely chase history, or go to FSU and chase UNC and Duke while being the "man". One possibility to consider though, if Jabari Parker ends up at Duke, that will be an interesting chase in the ACC if Wiggins goes to FSU.
On a side note, Kentucky will be playing a loaded schedule that season, so an undefeated season would be an amazing feat given they will be playing Michigan State in Chicago, Baylor in Jerryworld, UNC in Chapel Hill, Louisville at Rupp, and possibly Duke on a neutral site to be named later.
