When making your March Madness office pool picks, consider the teams carefully.  The Yale Bulldogs, for example, will have a tough time getting past the first game facing a top LSU team that is rated 20 by Sagarin.  They are a +8 dog in their first game of the big dance.

Why They Go Deep

Yale has an explosive firepower. Yale led the Ivy in a host of offensive statistical categories, like points per game, field goal percentage, free throw percentage, and turnover rate.

They went 16-12 Against The Spread.

Why Be Concerned

Their defense won't be good enough to go deep, and may not be enough to get them past LSU either.  Scratch that: It WON'T be.  The Tigers are just too good despite some off-the-court distractions.

Yale has only covered in four of their last ten games.

ESPN warns, playing at Yale's pace can be dangerous when facing the kinds of shooters and athletes that await the Bulldogs in the Big Dance.

Who They Will Play

LSU as a +8 underdog.
