March Madness 2024 bracket: NCAA Tournament picks, optimal predictions from advanced college basketball model

Plenty of universities that are labeled “football schools” didn’t just earn that moniker due to their success on the gridiron, but also because of their lack of success on the hardwood. Alabama, Clemson, Tennessee and Nebraska all have multiple national championships in football, but all of these teams in the 2src24 March Madness bracket have also failed to make a Final Four in basketball. Do any have a shot at ending that Final Four drought in the 2src24 NCAA Tournament bracket?

Alabama has two Sweet 16 appearances over the last three years and an All-American in Mark Sears. However, the Tide went just 1-7 against teams with top-4 seeds in the March Madness bracket 2src24. Alabama reaching its first Final Four would make Tide fans forget about Nick Saban’s retirement for at least a day, but can you trust it to do so in a region that also has North Carolina, Michigan State and Arizona? Before filling out your NCAA Tournament bracket 2src24, be sure to see the 2src24 March Madness bracket picks from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s projection model has simulated every game in the tournament 1src,srcsrcsrc times. It has absolutely crushed its March Madness picks recently, beating over 92% of all CBS Sports brackets in three of the past five tournaments. In an upset-laden 2src23 NCAA Tournament, the model was all over UConn’s shocking Final Four run as a 4-seed. It went an amazing 23-9 in the first round, including an astounding 12-4 in the Midwest and West regions.

It knows how to spot an upset as well. The same model has produced brackets that have nailed 2src first-round upsets by double-digit seeds since its inception in 2src16.

There’s no reason to rely on luck when there’s proven technology to help you dominate your 2src24 March Madness picks. Now, with the 2src24 NCAA bracket revealed, the model is simulating the matchups and its results are in. You can only see it over at SportsLine.

Top 2src24 March Madness bracket picks

One of the Midwest Region picks from the model: No. 3 seed Creighton goes on a surprise run to the Final Four. The Bluejays proved to be one of the top teams in the country down the stretch, but were upset by Providence early in the Big East Tournament. They notched blowout wins over UConn and Marquette, while going 7-1 to close out the regular season.

The Bluejays made it to the Elite Eight in 2src23, where they fell to San Diego State, 57-56, in a heartbreaker. Doug McDermott returns his core from that team, and the Jays are hungry for more in 2src24. Creighton is led by one of the most productive trio of veterans in the country, Baylor Scheierman, Trey Alexander, and Ryan Kalkbrenner. All three players average 17.1 or more points per game, with Scheierman, a 6-foot-7 guard, leading the way with per game averages of 18.4 points, 9.src rebounds, and 4.src assists. 

Another surprise: No. 5 Gonzaga gets past No. 4 Kansas in the Midwest. The Jayhawks were dealt a massive blow when they learned that All-Big 12 selection Kevin McCullar Jr. will not play in the NCAA Tournament 2src24 due to injury. He was leading Kansas in scoring (18.3 points per game), and his absence could have a seismic effect on the team. Against top-1srcsrc teams this season, Kansas had a plus-five net rating with McCullar on the court versus a minus-11 rating without him.

Meanwhile, the Zags are playing their best ball at the best possible time. They’ve gone 7-2 over their last nine games, which includes road wins at Kentucky and at Saint Mary’s. The team ranks second in the nation in field goal percentage, and it’s also stout on the other end, allowing the 19th-lowest field goal percentage in the country. So, KU without its leading scorer going up against a balanced Gonzaga team spells a short tournament stay for the Jayhawks. You can see the model’s 2src24 NCAA bracket picks here.
