Outkick's 2017 NCAA Tournament Picks

For the fourth straight year I'm going to bet every first and second round NCAA tournament game in Las Vegas. So far we have not met with total disaster on all these picks. In fact, I don't think we've ever finished beneath 50%.  

By the time you read this I'll be headed to the airport to fly to Vegas. Which will continue a wild Wednesday. Wake up at 4 am central to do my Outkick show for three hours, write and then fly to Vegas, where I'm speaking at two different corporate events on Wednesday night from 5:30 pt to 8:30 pt -- if you want to book me to speak, I'm expensive, but pretty fucking outstanding at entertaining an audience -- and then I'll head to my hotel for a couple of hours before going back out to do the Outkick morning show live from Vegas from 3-6 am pt.

Days like this are why I'm going to die at 42.

But in the meantime I'm going to make you a ton of money.  

So 32-0 here we go:

Villanova vs. Mt. Saint Mary's +26.5

Virginia Tech vs. Wisconsin, the under 137

Princeton +6.5 vs. Notre Dame

Bucknell vs. West Virginia, the over 148
