Every weekend we pick the winners to the weekend’s hottest matchups. And then maybe one or two others. Home team in ALL CAPS.

Friday: Utah (-1) over Arizona. A lot of people are wondering how Arizona got into the tournament. I am one of them.

Boston College (+2.5) over Southern Cal. Bill Simmons has BC in his Final Four! What a level-headed choice!

Xavier (-10.5) over Portland State. I have Xavier in my Sweet Sixteen, which means they’ll probably lose.

Saturday (no lines): Western Kentucky over Gonzaga. Is there anyone that likes Gonzaga? No? Didn’t think so.

UCLA over Villanova. No insight here; this is a pure brand recognition pick.

Purdue over Washington Another Big Ten-Pac 10 matchup that nobody cares about.

Sunday: Japan over UNITED STATES. Someday we’ll care about international baseball, when it’s not preseason baseball played in different laundry.
