March Madness Tips and Picks!

*Sorry this post was late today, I was finishing my picks on one of my 4 brackets.*

Today's the day. A basketball lover's Christmas morning. Only this lasts until April 8. I'm a happy camper. I'm not one of those people who, if their team loses, they quit watching. I'm a basketball fan, and I appreciate a good game.

So, have you made your bracket picks? Believe me, it's tough. Sometimes it is honestly the luck of the draw. Anything can happen. Like the year UNC was favored and George Mason beat them. (Amazing moment for this Duke fan!) 

Here are my tips to filling out your brackets.

  • Basketball is a game of matchups. Can your point guard match up with the opposition's point guard, etc.
  • Expect the upset, it's bound to happen.
  • Don't pick based on uniform color, mascots, etc. *Especially if you want to win an office pool*
  • A 16 seed has never upset a 1 seed. Never, as in never ever.
I will give you my Elite 8 through National Championship picks. Note, if you're using this for an office pool, I apologize in advance. I am not Joe Lunardi, and am just making my picks on what I *think* I know. On with the picks!

Elite 8
Louisville
Duke
Gonzaga
Ohio State

It pained me to take Louisville over Duke. It really did. I have 4 brackets. Duke wins it all on my "dream" bracket. I will tell you how I did with my picks so far on Monday. Best of luck to everyone, and may the best team win!


Leave me a comment and let me know what your picks are! Who is going to win it all? If you think I'm wrong (which I might be!) tell me! I've entered several bracket wagers this year but this one from CBS is very popular!
