March Madness Bracket Predictions: Experts Loving The East

As you frantically fill out your March Madness brackets, take into consideration a few of our college basketball experts to help you reach the national championship.

David Caraviello and Nick Holz have joined me in submitting a bracket so you can follow along in the fun but also consider some of the bets that can be made from our predictions. For example, I have Auburn cutting down the nets in April at +1500 while David has Tennessee coming out of the Midwest Region which would payout +350.

Below you will see each of our brackets along with odds and picks from their predictions on the national championship and the winners of the Midwest, East, South and West regions. 

Tony Farmer’s 2024 March Madness Bracket Predictions

Tony Farmer’s Picks For Each Region

Hold onto your hats! I'm predicting a relatively early exit for the reigning champion UConn Huskies, falling to eventual champs Auburn in the Sweet 16. Meanwhile in the Midwest, chaos ensues as No .13 advances to the Sweet 16 which, if you tail my bracket, would payout +800.

Lastly, Houston, which carries the second-shortest odds to win the National Championship, bowing out in the Round of 32 is shocking and a moneyline bet on Nebraska for that contest would likely be a +500 payout or greater.

David Caraviello’s Elite Eight Picks
Houston -145

While I'm expecting UConn to fail on their attempt to repeat, David isn't discounting the No.1 seed and is taking those Huskies to be the first repeat champions since Florida in '06 and '07. A repeat winner would pay +400 on that ticket.

In 2023, the Final Four was littered with lower-seeded squads and David expects things to return to the norm having two No. 1's and two No. 2's going to the Final Four. The most profitable bet of those four bets would be Tennessee at +350 to come out of the Midwest. 

Nick Holz's Bracket

Nick Holz’s Final Four Picks

Nick is riding with Tony by backing Auburn to win the national championship. However, he's expecting Madness in the Midwest with Purdue losing to TCU in the Round of 32 which is a hell of an improvement from last year. 

Instead of the Boilermakers making it through their region, Nick has the Creighton Bluejays advancing all the way to final, only to lose to Auburn. If you play Creighton to make it to the final that would pay out +1200.
