Barack Obama Picks Duke to Win NCAA Tournament in His Bracket

Barack Obama Picks Duke to Win NCAA Tournament in His Bracket

Rather, he swallowed his pride and went with the team that most are likely picking to win it all - the No.1 overall seed Duke Blue Devils.

So who do the zoo denizens think will win the Big Dance?

It is not hard to see why. The Boilermakers have proven they can beat top teams with a win over Michigan State, and Carsen Edwards is among the best players in the region.

March Madness is upon us, and basketball fans are busily filling out their tournament brackets. At 15-17, I doubt the NIT was going to invite Missouri. Williamson then turned in a superhuman effort to lead Duke over the Tar Heels in the ACC Tournament - thing is Duke won by all of one point. Winning the lottery is only 1 in 13,983,816 so just think about that for one second. If we can pull off the play-in game against NC Central, we will get to play the best team in college basketball, the Duke Blue Devils. Maybe the Cardinals would have a prayer against Duke since they've already come close to upsetting the best team in the country.

Nobody thought a No. 16 seed would beat a No. 1 seed, but it happened previous year. But of those 32 teams, 20 of them went on to win it all in the end. So, which 1-seed could be in trouble this year? Gonzaga. Guess who is the only team to beat Duke at full strength this year?

ACC co-champion North Carolina and West Coast Conference powerhouse Gonzaga are tied for third, as the 2017 NCAA title game participants share 8-to-1 odds to cut the nets down early next month.

Saint Mary's has to be taken seriously after cruising past Gonzaga to win the conference tournament. Virginia is the team that made history last season by becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose in the first round.

Moving down to the Midwest Region, I believe this section of the bracket is a two-team race between No. 1 North Carolina and No. 2 Kentucky.

I watched one Murray State game after seeing a sweet Instagram video of Ja Morant taking off for a dunk in slow motion and as he elevated the rest of his team did also causing them all to land at the same time, I repeat in slow motion, that sent me falling to the floor like an old person with vertigo due to the sheer artistry that I didn't think a dunk video could possess.

But what about non-No. In the East, Duke is joined by the No. 2 seed Michigan State Spartans, the No. 4 seed Virginia Tech Hokies and No. 6 seed Maryland Terrapins.
