 siennagirls Now that the brackets are out, its time for all the office pools and online contests to begin flooding your inbox with dreams of millions of dollars and intra-office glory. It seems like this time of year also brings a different kind of flooding: The waves of experts telling you what upsets to count on. Now, while I don't condone the use of basketball experts (particularly a certain intern who has been telling you his picks on this site lately), just to make things easier, I thought I'd give you a quick guide to the expert's advice for picking first round upsets. 11 Seed over 6 Seed: (11) Washington over (6) Marquette Pick it:, Gary Parrish, Jeff Goodman Don't Bet on it:  Matt Jones (11) ODU over (6) Notre Dame Pick it: Mike Miller, Jeff Goodman, Stewart Mandel (SI) , Ken Davis (11) San Diego St. over (6) Tennessee Pick it: Stewart Mandel (SI)   12 Seed over 5 Seed: (12) Cornell over (5) Temple Pick it:, Jeff Goodman Don't Bet on it:  Eamonn Brennan (ESPN) (12) Utah St. over (5) Texas A&M Pick it: Harvard Sports Collective, Mike Miller, CBSsports (12) New Mexico St over (5) Mich St. Pick it: Jeff Goodman   13 Seed over 4 Seed: (13) Siena over (4) Purdue Pick it: Harvard Sports Collective, Peter Schrager, Jeff Goodman, Stewart Mandel (SI), everyone else in the world Don't Bet on it: Purdue Fans (13) Murray St. over (4) Vanderbilt Pick it:, Mike Miller (13)Houston over (4) Maryland Pick it:  Harvard Sports Analysis Collective (13) Wofford over (4) Wisconsin Pick it: Matt Jones So does that clear things up a bit? Yeah I didn't think so. My advice: dartboard. It's gotta be better than BTI.
