College basketball picks: 2019 March Madness bracket predictions for Elite Eight games on Sunday

The NCAA Tournament marches on to the Elite Eight. There are only six teams remaining in March Madness, with two more spots up for grabs to join the Final Four field in Minneapolis next week.

No. 5 seed Auburn might be the closest thing to a surprise this year after knocking out No. 1 seed North Carolina in the Sweet 16.
