From "March Madness broadcaster CBS even created a handy “boss” button that, with a single click, replaces your Internet hoops action with a fake spreadsheet or flow chart that helps fans avoid getting busted. That button gets millions of clicks every March. "

Nate Silver Forecast

More number cruching "First, I pull in Jeff Sagarin’s regular season rankings. I also consider Ken Pomeroy’s offensive and defensive efficiency stats, along with his Pythagorean win percentage.

Over the last four years, teams with a 2+ point advantage in Sagarin’s “predictor” rating have won 156 of 198 games (78.7%). Over the last two years, if a team had at least a 65% expected win rate according to Pomeroy’s Pythagorean calculation, they won 61 of 76 games (80.2%). So I won’t stray too far from these two indicators if they both agree that a certain team is going to win."
