NCAA Men's Division 1: Elite Eight Picks

By Robert H. Kelly

The time has come for the Elite Eight. The eight teams that will battle to go to the Final Four hit the floor today and tomorrow. Four move on, Four join the other 61 teams that will be viewing the final two games from the cheap seats.

So without any further ado, here are my picks and the rational for them.

Here we go!

Ohio State over Memphis

Kansas over UCLA

Florida over Oregon

North Carolina over Georgetown

If you have been keeping up with this year's tournament and look at the picks I have made, one thing should come to mind.

It is not that hard to see, but one must be observaint.

My picks are all the number one seeds. The number one seeds will advance to the Final Four. This will be the first time that has happened in quite a while, if ever.

So there you have it. My picks for the Final Four. Everyone will know on Sunday evening who they will be.

I will be back later to give the scores of day one of the Elite Eight and my views about the games.

Another technique used by professional sports bettors is buying a half point on or off of key numbers. A key number is any pointspread where there is a relatively high chance of the bet ending in a push.
