Where to Take Your Biggest Gambles in Picking Your 2014 NCAA Bracket

Winning your bracket pool is all about taking calculated risks, and we've got eight suggestions on where you should take your biggest gambles.

Picking a bracket is like weightlifting. If you don't use any chalk, you run the risk of hurting yourself. But if you use too much chalk, everyone else in the gym assumes you have no idea what you're doing.

If you pick nothing but No. 1 seeds in the Final Four, you probably won't finish in last place, but it's unlikely that you'll win any pools. If you don't pick any No. 1 seeds to the Final Four, though, you're basically saying that the selection committee has no grasp whatsoever on what the best teams are.

Both would be foolish. Take a few risks, but don't go crazy.

These are the spots where we think the reward more than outweighs the risk.
