2017 NCAA Tournament preview
There’s no consensus favorite in this tournament, since Villanova, North Carolina, Duke, Kansas are all the favorites at various sports books. Gonzaga, the other No. 1 seed, isn’t favored anywhere.
The Zags do have a tough road, with West Virginia potentially looming in the Sweet 16 and Arizona at the bottom of that bracket. Top-seeded Villanova has to contend with Duke, Baylor and Florida throughout its bracket, thought the Wildcats stormed through the NCAA Tournament last season.
North Carolina appears to have the easiest road to at least the Elite 8, where it’s projected to meet either UCLA or Kentucky (but it’s the NCAA Tournament; we’re certainly not counting on that).
As for our pick? Land of 10’s Corey Masisak is taking Gonzaga to win it all, with UCLA, Oregon and Villanova also in the Final Four.
