Five First-Round March Madness Upset Picks

March Madness has arrived and the most important part of filling out a bracket or placing bets is picking upsets. Is there skill or luck in picking the right mid-major or underachieving power school to make a run? Probably a little of both. With that in mind here are five first-round matchups where an underdog could pull off the upset. Odds via WynnBet.

Coach Chris Beard has had quite a bit of success in March Madness, including a run to the NCAA Championship Game with Texas Tech, but this team has lost three straight games heading into the tournament and it wouldn’t make much sense for Texas basketball to truly be back before Texas football. The Hokies went 11-9 in the ACC this year, but won the ACC Tournament by beating three NCAA Tournament teams in a row (Notre Dame, North Carolina and Duke).

Richmond is back in the tournament for the first time since 2011 when they made a Sweet 16 run. After losing their regular season finale, they ran through the A-10 Tournament and earned their way into the tournament with a close win over Davidson who earned an at-large bid. Iowa won the Big Ten Tournament, but they have never made it out of the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament under Fran McCaffery.
