SportsLine Simulation Bracket Full of Surprises

SportsLine simulated every possible matchup thousands of times and the team that won over 50% of simulations was selected to advance. In order to "simulate the madness" we also assumed that the Nos. 3-6 seeds with the lowest win% when compared to other teams of the same seed would be upset. This is why you will see favored teams not advancing in some cases.

EAST REGION UPSETS: No. 13 ETSU over Florida -- Florida is the 82 percent favorite to win, but its chances are lower than fellow No. 4 seeds Butler (91 percent), West Virginia (88 percent) and Purdue (84 percent). No. 10 Marquette over No. 7 South Carolina -- The sims have Marquette as a 69 percent favorite in this matchup, so it's not even an upset... Now, get every pick, every play, every upset from the model that nailed 6 of the 7 double-digit seed upsets last year. Join today!!
