Sweet Sixteen Predictions Video: Kentucky, Baylor To Win In Atlanta

Not that you should be surprised, but the guys over at the SB Nation studios are picking the Kentucky Wildcats to beat the Indiana Hoosiers and the Baylor Bears to take out Xavier as well. The predictions joked to be "bold and wrong" at the beginning of the segment, when they are in fact safe and more than likely correct.

Dan Rubenstein is picking Kentucky to be just a bit too much for the Hoosiers:

"Indiana caught fire, hot like a pistol the last time they played they hit seven straight 3s. Anthony Davis was in foul trouble for Kentucky and didn't really see the PT (playing time) that he's seen since and before. And he's probable Player of the Year right now, nationally. So, I think Kentucky is too good, too athletic and they swarm too much on defense."

Matt Ufford is actually picking the Tu Holloway led Xavier to beat Baylor, but Rubenstein thinks the Bears are too athletic for Xavier to handle.
