March Madness 2010 Picks: Saturday Games

The following are picks for the Saturday games that will a long way to shaping the March Madness 2010 bracket. There are a lot of mismatches today so it will be interesting to see if there are any shocking upsets, we don't see any except Texas but you never know.
  1. Number 1 Kansas is at home against Iowa State, should be no problem for the Jayhawks in this one as they will be keeping their number 1 overall ranking this week.
  2. Number 2 Kentucky faces number 12 Tennessee at home in the game of the day. We feel like this game will be close and could go either way but we will go out on a limb and say that Tennessee pulls off the dramatic upset.
  3. Number 5 Villanova will continue their easy ways as they should beat Big East bottom dweller Providence. The win would give Villanova back a share of first place in the Big East.
  4. Number 6 Purdue should walk all over lowly Iowa at home.
  5. Number 7 Duke plays at home against Maryland, this will be coach K.'s 1,000th game at Duke and is his 63rd birthday today. Duke should be able to get him the win amongst all the pageantry planned for the game.
  6. Number 9 Kansas State takes on Colorado at home, Kansas State will be tested in this one but escape with the victory.
  7. Number 10 Michigan State looks to get back on track against Penn State on the road. Penn State hasn't won yet in the Big Ten and it isn't going to happen in this game.
  8. Number 11 Gonzaga takes on San Diego at home in what should be an easy victory for the Bulldogs.
  9. Number 13 Wisconsin looks to rebound at home after their shocking home loss to Illinois, they will start a new streak against Indiana.
  10. Number 14 Texas is at home against Nebraska and we are taking them to suffer another shocking loss as their free fall continues.
  11. Number 21 Temple is at home against Rhode Island and needs a strong effort without star player Juan Fernandez, Temple will get the win.
