NCAA Bracket Breakdown
Round of 64
Overview: The Midwest hold some of the more certain round of 64 matchups. While we can see some top seeds struggling, we see most (if not all) of the higher seeds escaping, and advancing to the round of 32. Kansas, Duke, and Michigan State are all true final four contenders, but after that the talent drops a level, but since when does talent alone determine outcomes in March Madness?
Biggest Upset: Expect the Midwest to be clear of upsets for the most part. The one ‘upset; we have is the winner of Syracuse/Arizona State defeating 6 seeded TCU. We do predict Syracuse as the winner of the play in game, and we think they’ll be determined to prove doubters wrong (at least in the round of 64).
