As we all know I am a huge sport junkie and screw Christmas this is the most wonderful time of the year. The NCAA Tourney is almost upon us, nothing like 48 hours of straight NCAA basketball. More than likely there is some type of tourney pool going on at your place of business or amongst your friends. I am here to help you win the bragging rights and more importantly some cash
I will preface all this by saying I in fact have yet to win a pool, but it is not for a lack of effort or research.
My first round upsets are as follows: Buffalo over West Virginia, Wofford over Arkansas, and Stephen F Austin over Utah. Those three are your traditional 12 seed over 5 seed wins we see pretty much every tourney.
Other first round upsets I have: Purdue over Cincinnati, Eastern Washington over Georgetown, Ole Miss over Xavier, Davidson over Iowa, Texas over Butler, and the winner of Boise St/Dayton over Providence.
I know what you are thinking that is a lot of upsets, it is but outside the top 7 or 8 teams there is a a lot of parity in college basketball.
My Final Four? Glad you asked: Kentucky, Arizona, in a surprise Oklahoma, and as much as I hate them.. Duke.
Let’s face facts as much as we all can’t stand John Calipari, he has the horses this year, which is why I have Kentucky winning it all.
Take this info and do with it what you will, you may be better off picking the exact opposite of what I have. Most of all have fun and enjoy the Madness that is about to ensue
