Barack Obama reveals his 2018 NCAA Tournament brackets


Recent history actually favors the lower-seeded teams in those games. Let's take a look at why you shouldn't watch the NCAA Tournament this year.

For non-basketball fans, building a bracket can be somewhat intimidating, but it shouldn't be!

Virginia (31-2) has been the best team in the country for much of the second half of the season, and the Cavaliers earned the No. 1 seed in the South region and the top seed overall in the tournament.

Doing so perfectly is borderline impossible, but for most people, it's simply a matter of having a better bracket than the friends or co-workers you happen to compete against. The best part of Round by Round is you never have a busted bracket because you start fresh each round. Both brackets can be found here.

Finding a bracket pool to enter might sound complicated, but it is simple. That's virtually impossible but there are a lot of interesting ways you can fill out a winning bracket.

But chances are your pool will be hosted on ESPN.com, CBSSports.com, or similar site.

With Hulu Live, you can also watch every game of the Women's NCAA Tournament. Nowadays most host sites have a "Sign in through Facebook" option, so you don't even have to really deal with the inconvenience of setting up a new account. Jacobson has a clear, penetrating voice to match her clear, penetrating reporting - and that purposeful voice is to her advantage big time as "March Madness" lives up to its name.

The higher seeds are predicted to win, but upsets always happen which makes predicting the tournament especially hard. Turner Sports hopes to bring you virtually into the action. It's worth a quick read before filling out your bracket.

Don't stress. There's no wrong way to do this.

The full first round of March Madness tips off at 9:15 a.m. No. 1 seed Kansas would probably beat No. 16 Pennsylvania 999 out of 1,000 times they play.

Along with Michigan State, Obama has picked North Carolina, Virginia and Villanova to make the Final Four, with the Spartans prevailing over Virginia in the final. It once again seems to have originated in IL but was introduced into the college scene in 1947 with North Carolina State.

But sooner or later, you have to set the endless stream of stats aside and make a decision. Duke's size is also going to hard for Villanova to handle, and I think Duke's zone will give Villanova trouble. Although it seems like there are literally hundreds of brackets out there for you to check out this postseason, we have taken some time to highlight some of our favorites for you below. The Big 12 finished with the No. 1 RPI four of the past five years, yet has just a 57.1 winning percentage during the span, ahead of only the Big East (51 percent) as the second-worst number among major basketball conferences compared to the Atlantic Coast Conference (67 percent), Southeastern Conference (67 percent), Big Ten (58 percent) and Pac 12 (59 percent). We were definitely disappointed with our outing at the ACC Tournament, but there is so much to be proud of about this season. A common amount is to tip the amount of their own entry fee.

Congratulations! You've won your bracket pool.

If you do win your pool, it is a nice gesture to tip whoever put the league together.

And that's everything you need to know about building a bracket!
