NCAA Tournament Picks, Predictions & Odds 2016
Every day we produce detailed bracketology odds for all NCAA Division I teams. To derive these odds, we run thousands of computer simulations of remaining regular season games, conference tournaments, and even the NCAA selection committee process itself.
Based on team seedings and future round matchup probabilities, we calculate the odds for every team to survive each successive NCAA tournament round. Before Selection Sunday, we use the results of our bracketology simulations as the basis for these predictions.
Once the tournament bracket is announced on Selection Sunday, we aggregate insights from the world's best ratings systems and predictions (including Vegas odds), and use it to customize bracket picks that give you the best chance to win your NCAA pool.
If you're interested in learning about some of the methods we use to generate a huge edge in NCAA bracket pools, we invite you to check out our Bracket Picking Guide, a blog post series that explains how to think and act like an NCAA pool pro.
If you're heading to Vegas for the tournament, our point spread and over/under picks for college basketball have compiled a track record of profitability that spans a sample size of more than 8,000 recommended picks over the past 8 seasons.
