Expert NCAA Tournament Predictions from Around the Web

Who did Dick Vitale choose as his national champion?

The best part about filling out an NCAA tournament bracket is that everyone has an equal chance to be an expert. Or at least appear to be an expert. 

All you have to do is fill one out, and if you correctly predict a 13th-seeded Cinderella crashing the Final Four, then you’re a basketball genius.

But if your bracket busts after the first weekend, the experts can still stand in as your scapegoats. Experts typically do have the most insight after months of studying, writing, analyzing and reporting about the top 68 teams in the country. Taking a look at their picks can often help pacify any fears of riding an upset through to the Sweet 16 or knowing how far to carry your No. 1 seeds.

I checked out the top college basketball writers from CBS, ESPN, Sports Illustrated and Sporting News to glean various tournament trends and see which teams were the most polarizing.

Read on to see the expert picks from the deepest sleepers all the way to the tournament champions.
