College Basketball: OddsShark Super Computer March Madness Bracket Picks


By now you’ve heard it countless times that picking a perfect bracket for March Madness nearly impossible and the odds of one person doing so are something like one in 14 quintillion. Those vast odds can be extremely daunting and can influence the way you pick your bracket that’s where OddsShark’s Supercomputer comes in. Our computer crunches millions of numbers and trends and makes an unbiased selection on a game based on what it feels is the most likely outcome. For the first time ever the computer has become capable of picking an entire bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament and without any further ado here is what our mechanical friend came up with. Right off the bat you’ll notice that there’s something pretty funny about this bracket, that’s right the computer has predicted the impossible and likes 16 seeded NC Central to get by Kansas in the first round of the Midwest tourney. The first rule everyone knows when filling out a bracket for March Madness is that you don’t pick 16 seeds because everybody knows that a number one seed has never lost in the first round. You always hear the bad jokes of people saying that this might be the 16th seeds year but for the computer this is no laughing matter as it has NC Central making it all the way to the Sweet 16. Sorry Kansas and Michigan State it looks like it’s the Eagles time to shine. Continuing on with the craziness the computer has picked Gonzaga as its champion as it has them beating Louisville in the final. Not only have the Bulldogs never won an NCAA title they’ve never even made it to the final four. For all you people out thinking about backing the Zag maybe this can be your beacon to trust and follow unless that NC Central pick has you thrown off the trail a little bit. Looking past those two blotches the computer’s bracket is actually fairly well adjusted with all one’s and two’s in the final four and just two teams bigger than a three seed in it’s Elite Eights. Those teams I speak of are13th seeded Vermont who the computer has picked to end the tyrannous run of NC Central and the sixth-seeded SMU Mustangs. The other two teams the computer has rounding out the final four our North Carolina and Villanova. But it’s only against the grain a little bit by not pencilling in those number one seeds into a rematch in the final.
