Make sure you check out our picks for EVERY NCAA Tournament matchup!
Loyola Chicago (-110) over Ohio State
Believe in the power of Sister Jean. The Ramblers can make another run.
Auburn (-2000) over Jacksonville State
A team that was ranked #1 at one point this season isn’t losing to Jacksonville State.
Texas Tech (-1600) over Montana State
Texas Tech’s defense is too good even for most Power 5 programs. It will be way too good for Montana State.
Purdue (-1750) over Yale
Upsets happen in March – they just don’t happen in Purdue versus Yale.
Villanova (-1750) over Delaware
The Blue Hens will lay an egg.
Miami (+115) over USC
With Evan Mobley now in the pros, this isn’t the same USC squad that made the Elite Eight last year.
Notre Dame (+155) over Alabama
Notre Dame is already battle-tested after winning its First Four game in double-overtime.
Illinois (-350) over Chattanooga
The Mocs produced one of the most dramatic moments of conference championship week. Nothing will take that away from them – not even a big loss to Illinois.
Texas (-115) over Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech had its run – and its fun. The ACC Tournament title was nice, but the NCAA Tournament is where things end right away for the Hokies.
Duke (-2500) over Cal State Fullerton
Head coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final game may be this weekend. It just won’t be against Cal State Fullerton.
LSU (-190) over Iowa State
Will Wade is gone. His team won’t be until at least the second round.
Arizona (-5000) over Wright State
Arizona can win it all. It definitely can’t be the second-ever #1 seed to lose.
Houston (-400) over UAB
I trust this Houston program after it made the Final Four last spring.
Davidson (-105) over Michigan State
As long as some outside shots fall, Davidson’s motion offense will be too much for a subpar Michigan State squad.
Wisconsin (-350) over Colgate
If you brush up on your Patriot League knowledge, you will realize that Colgate can’t compete with Wisconsin.
TCU (-105) over Seton Hall
Are you feeling Froggy? I am!
