President Obama fills out his March Madness bracket

It's that time of year when everyone filling out a March Madness bracket asks friends and coworkers alike: "Who ya got?"

President Barack Obama joined in the fun once again, meeting up with ESPN's college basketball analyst Andy Katz to divulge his picks for the 2015 NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Undefeated Kentucky will win the championship game over Villanova, the president predicts, as do the odds. The Wildcats, who are the number one overall seed, are listed by a Las Vegas Sportsbook as having 1-1 odds to win it all, one of the biggest favorites in modern history.

This year's presidential bracket includes two 12-5 seed upsets in the first round (Buffalo over West Virginia and Wyoming over Northern Iowa). Though he doesn't call any significant Cinderella stories, Obama does choose No. 10 Davidson to make it all the way to the Sweet 16. Aside from Villanova and Kentucky (both No. 1 seeds), he has No. 1 Duke and No. 2 Arizona in the final four.

The president is known for his love of basketball, posting a letter to a high school student Tuesday about how the game has influenced his life.



Obama is 1-5 in picking the overall winner from the Oval Office. He correctly chose the North Carolina Tar Heels to win it all in 2009, and he hasn't been right since.
