41 Coin Flip For those of you who like to pick a game based on your favorite color or because your cousin graduated from there, here is your spot. e eight vs. nine game is basically a 50- 50 game. If you want any hints on who to pick, I suggest you check the Las Vegas betting lines and see who they favor. ose guys are pretty good. Money with the 1's A No. 1 seed has NEVER lost a first round game. Don't try to be a hero and pick the first big upset. It's not happening. Nobody likes picking the favorites, but be very careful when predicting an upset of a No. 1 seed. Since the tournament expanded in 1985, there have been 64 championship game participants. Of those 64, 30 have been a No. 1 seed and 19 have been crowned national champions. Don't pick all No. 1 seeds in your Final Four but you should have at least one. At least one No. 1 seed has made it to the Final Four every year except 1980, 2006 and 2011. Recent Trend Parity in college basketball is becoming more apparent. e 11 seed versus the 6 seed is proof. In the past 12 tournaments, an 11 has beaten a 6, including twice in 2014 and three times in 2016. Why so Blue? If you must pick a game based on the color of the uniform, make sure you pick a national champion with a blue uniform. Twelve of the past 13 years, the champion has had a shade of blue in their uniform. Louisville in 2013 is the lone exception. Fork In e Road When you get to that game that you just can't decide who to pick, break out your smart phone or laptop and look up strength of schedule. Take the school with the harder schedule. If that doesn't help, then pick the school with the more experienced coach. Fun Always remember that this is just for fun and entertainment. I wish you all best of luck!
