Free 2017 NCAA Tournament Picks: Cappers Go Head To Head in Round One

March Madness Bracket

Thursday, March 16, 2017 1:37 PM GMT

Another round of March Madness is here and our hottest cappers will be providing free picks throughout the entire tournament. I've been assigned to keep track of how all 4 experts are doing after each round same as discussing why I liked or disliked some of their selections. Make sure to check back with us all the updates and who's picks are the hottest in our 2017 March Madness bracket.

SBR Picks is ready with tons of free 2017 NCAA Tournament picks for every game on the slate.

Mark Lathrop has a 60%-win rate ATS on his NCAA Basketball Picks of the Day and he will continue to provide his top selections during the College Basketball Tournament. While Mark continues busting the books, we grouped four of our best handicappers to cover the entire bracket and I've been assigned to be a neutral handicapper on a contest. Ross Benjamin, Jason Lake, Jay Pryce and Doug Upstone, will each cover a region on the NCAA Tournament all the way to the National Championship Game.

We will compare the ATS records of these four handicappers on our March Madness bracket and you can track their progress. How? Well, their winning picks will be highlighted in green and their losing picks will be highlighted in red and we will update their records on the bracket as the games take place.

Ross Benjamin and Jason Lake will go head-to-head. Benjamin will be in the East Region and Lake in the West Region while Jay Pryce will be up against Doug Upstone. Pryce will be in the Midwest Region and Upstone on the South Region and the two with the best record on each side will advance to the National Championship game. Then, we will compare the records of the two who moved on and determine who earns the right to cover the National Championship game with a free NCAA basketball pick.

We want to make sure that you get the very best free March Madness predictions for the National Championship Game and what better way to ensure that than awarding that privilege to the hottest SBR handicapper during the NCAA Tournament.
