March 20 NCAA Tournament First Four Picks

Eds Note — I’m going to try something a little different and make picks for every game of the NCAA Tournament. The games I do actual previews for will have links to Winners and Whiners.

These are the condensed versions of picks for Wednesday’s First Four NCAA Tournament games. When applicable, there will be a link to the full preview is below. The confidence rating on a scale from 1 to 5 is in parentheses.

Note: The 5/5 does NOT represent the best overall pick of the day’s games when there are multiple games, simply the best pick of each individual game.
