12:15 p.m. (CBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Michigan
  • ATS pick: Michigan

The Wolverines are among the nation’s hottest teams. Let’s ride them till they let us down.

12:40 p.m. (truTV)

  • Straight-up pick: Baylor
  • ATS pick: New Mexico State

I can’t see Baylor losing this game. But I can definitely see New Mexico State keeping it interesting and staying within 12 points.

1:30 p.m. (TNT)

  • Straight-up pick: Seton Hall
  • ATS pick: Seton Hall

The Pirates were on a five-game winning streak before they lost 55-53 to Villanova in the Big East Tournament semifinals. So they have been playing well and should advance in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2004.

Oregon (-15) vs. Iona

2 p.m. (TBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Oregon
  • ATS pick: Oregon

The loss of Chris Boucher might cost the Ducks deeper in this bracket. But it won’t keep them from rolling Iona.

2:45 p.m. (CBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Louisville
  • ATS pick: Jacksonville State

Yes, Louisville can beat Jacksonville State by 20. But I’ll take the points and just hope Rick Pitino takes it easy.

SMU (-6) vs. USC

3:10 p.m. (truTV)

  • Straight-up pick: SMU
  • ATS pick: SMU

The Trojans beat the Mustangs back in November. But SMU should even the season series while advancing to the Round of 32 for the first time since 1988.

4 p.m. (TNT)

  • Straight-up pick: UNC
  • ATS pick: UNC

Louisville and Cincinnati both beat Texas Southern by 30-plus points this season. There’s no reason North Carolina can’t follow their leads.

4:30 p.m. (TBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Rhode Island
  • ATS pick: Rhode Island

I have the Rams going to the Sweet 16. And they can’t do that without first beating Greg McDermott’s Bluejays -- who just aren’t the same without Mo Watson.

6:50 p.m. (TNT)

  • Straight-up pick: Kansas
  • ATS pick: Kansas

Congrats to UC Davis on getting its first NCAA Tournament win in history via that victory vs. NC Central. Now it’s time to go home, though,

7:10 p.m. (CBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Wichita State
  • ATS pick: Dayton

The selection committee under-seeded Wichita State and screwed Dayton in the process. I see Wichita State winning a close game that Dayton covers.

Duke (-20) vs. Troy

7:20 p.m. (TBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Duke
  • ATS pick: Duke

UT Arlington beat Troy by 15 a few weeks ago. A Duke team that’s playing well right now should be able to get the Trojans by more than 20 in this 2-15 matchup.

7:27 p.m. (truTV)

  • Straight-up pick: Cincinnati
  • ATS pick: Cincinnati

A First Four team has advanced to the Round of 32 each year the First Four has existed. I’m betting Kansas State isn’t the school that extends that streak this season.

9:20 p.m. (TNT)

  • Straight-up pick: Miami
  • ATS pick: Miami

It’s amazing that Tom Izzo got the Spartans to the NCAA Tournament given their less-than-ideal combination of injuries and inexperience. But I just don’t see Michigan State winning a game.

9:40 p.m. (CBS)

  • Straight-up pick: Kentucky
  • ATS pick: Kentucky

The Wildcats tend to physically overwhelm teams like Northern Kentucky. So I’m much more comfortable laying 20 points than taking 20 points in this game.

9:57 p.m. (truTV)

  • Straight-up pick: Marquette
  • ATS pick: Marquette

South Carolina is 3-6 in its past nine games with two losses to Alabama and one to Ole Miss. Simply put, I believe the wrong team is favored in this game.

9:57 p.m. (truTV)

  • Straight-up pick: UCLA
  • ATS pick: UCLA

Central Michigan scored 106 points on Kent State earlier this month. So what do you think UCLA is going to do to the Golden Flashes?
