When making your March Madness office pool picks, consider the teams carefully.  Buffalo, for example, should make it into the weekend, but will they?  Remember to print out your March Madness bracket here


Why They Go Deep

The Bulls can beat almost anyone.  Whether they can get the job against the number one seeds remains to be seen (maybe Tennessee after Sunday's display versus Auburn).  They are certainly capable of beating an Ohio State and even LSU to advance into the Sweet 16.

Why Be Concerned

Stumbles against Bowling Green and Northern Illinois on the road are the only blemishes, but getting past the likes of LSU will be tough.  If you are going to have a number 6 or greater team go deep in your bracket, this is the one.  It could not be easy for the oddsmakers to list Buffalo around the same odds of winning the Championship as Louisville (between 100-1 and 150-1 depending on the book).  Ohio State is likely the least favorite option among teams they were expected to face off against first.

Who They Will Play

It's looking more and more like Ohio State the first game and probably LSU on the weekend.    The Bulls should be listed as a -2.5 favorite should this be the case.  Early on we had them facing Temple, which would have been a better option since we were looking at a -6 point line.
