2019 NCAA Tournament Picks

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Hey, I'm picking Duke like everyone else.  Spoiler.  I don't have a bracket with a winner other than Duke or Virginia; I'd also not be surprised if Gonzaga won.  Any other winner would surprise.

I've got a few different brackets out there (I've entered a contest picking nothing but the higher seeds) but this will be my official bracket:

East
Round 1 Winners:

Duke
UCF (VCU doesn't get defensive rebounds)
Miss St. (not sure under what circumstance I'd ever pick Liberty)
Va Tech
Belmont/Temple (going to pick either of them over the Terps)
LSU
Minnesota
Michigan St

West 
Round 1 Winners:

Gonzaga
Baylor (plays well against zone defense)
Murray (this is sort of a sucker play, everyone wants to see Ja Morant so are willing this upset)
Florida St
Buffalo (if Arizona St wins that is super, super tempting)
TTech
Nevada
Michigan

South
Round 1 Winners:

UVA
Ole Miss (OU struggles vs zone defense)
Oregon (I'm a Pac 12 guy and the Ducks have been comin')
UC Irvine (going with both west coast teams in San Jose)
St Marys (I often over value California teams out of desire to root for them)
Purdue
Cincinnati (another pick based on game site)
Tennessee

Midwest
Round 1 Winners:

UNC
Utah St (Washington may struggle to score)
New Mexico St (I really like this matchup for the dog)
Kansas
Iowa St (they have 2 for real NBA prospects)
Houston
Wofford (they could get bounced, which would make for a long tournament for your boy)
UK

East
Round 2 Winners:

Duke
VT (VT is small, but Miss St can't take advantage)
Belmont/Temple
Michigan St (I do not like picking a team with this many injuries)

West
Round 2 Winners:

Gonzaga
Florida St (I'll be rooting for whomever they're playing, heck, I'm rooting for Vermont in the previous round)
Buffalo (this is a team that gets up and down the floor, you want pace? Buffalo gives you pace)
Nevada (Nevada's high intensity plus lack of depth makes this second game in the weekend a challenge, but I want that Buffalo/Nevada Sweet 16 game)

South 
Round 2 Winners:

Virginia
Oregon
Purdue
Tennessee

Midwest
Round 2 Winners

UNC
Kansas
Houston
Wofford (they've won 20 straight coming in and now I have them at 22, beating Kentucky)

Sweet 16 Winners
Duke
Michigan St (so many injuries)
Gonzaga
Nevada
Virginia
Purdue
UNC
Wofford (Does Wofford make the Elite 8?)

Final Four
Duke
Gonzaga
Virginia
Wofford (three ones and Wofford, why not)

Final Game
Duke over Virginia










2019 First Four Picks

Full bracket tomorrow. Here are my First Four picks for the 2019 NCAA Tournament:

FDU over Prairie View
Belmont over Temple
ND St over NC Central
Arizona St over St Johns
