In our Giant Killers tour of the NCAA tournament regions -- which previously included the East, West and Southeast regions -- we've run into some really good upset opportunities. But with the last bracket in our region-by-region look at upsets predicted by our Giant Killers statistical analysis, we may have the best chance of all for a Goliath-slayer.

(Note: Numbers in parentheses represent a team's Giant Killer score. The higher the number for underdogs, the more likely they can pull the upset. The higher the number for favorites, the more likely they are to fall. For a deeper explanation, click here.)


Best Bets

No. 12 Richmond (31.2 Giant Killer score, on a 100-point scale) vs. No. 5 Vanderbilt (75.9 Vulnerability score)
