The Mountaineers head up the interstate to Pittsburgh for a very winnable game against Gonzaga. No way this isn't a close contest, in which case you have to favor the team that has Kevin Jones. That would be West Virginia, of course, who survive a round before falling to Ohio State.

Plus, you can enlist the help of Insider's Bracket Predictor tool to aid your picks.
