2015 NCAA Tournament Brackets: Kentucky-Duke most popular pick
Kentucky and Duke are the most popular picks to reach the Final Four and meet in the championship game according to CBSSports.com's Bracket Challenge Users.
Kentucky, Duke, Virginia and Wisconsin make up the most-selected Final Four according to the brackets filled out by CBSSports.com Bracket Challenge users as of midday Tuesday.
Villanova and Arizona are also popular picks to win their regions, and Gonzaga has even got some momentum as a team that could come out of the South Region. But no one combination of teams has separated itself as the overwhelming fan favorite quite like the prediction of a Kentucky-Duke matchup in the national championship game.
