Expert Picks and Predictions for the 2021 NCAA Final Four Stage of the March Madness Tournament


Bleacher Report – Kerry Miller

Predicts: Baylor vs. Gonzaga Final

Kerry Miller of Bleacher Report gives props to the Bruins for getting this deep in the tournament. Odds were stacked high on the Bruins to do so. They started in the First Four and had barely got by the Michigan State Spartans in an overtime win in that round. Then they upset the BYU Cougars in the first round before ending the Cinderella run of the Abilene Christian Wildcats. Then in the Sweet Sixteen, the Bruins managed to outlast SEC regular-season champs and conference tournament champions, Alabama Crimson Tide. This brings us to the game against the Michigan Wolverines, which, despite UCLA’s success, were predicted by almost everyone to stop the Bruins. Again, the Bruins will be facing a No. 1 seed, this time in the Final Four and in the form of the Gonzaga Bulldogs. For Miller, this is where the magic stops for UCLA. Gonzaga is simply a team in a class of its own. 


College Football News – Pete Fiutak

Predicts: Baylor vs. Gonzaga Final

Pete Fiutak is picking Baylor to win in the other Final Four matchup. Fiutak notes that the Cougars have the “defensive style, the attacking ability, and the athleticism” to make the Bears uncomfortable, but he also questions Houston’s strength of recent opponents. The Cougars have only defeated double-digit seeds so far in the tournament and will be facing a serious title contender on Saturday in the form of the Bears. Baylor is a different animal than any team that Cougars have eliminated in the Big Dance. The Bears are the best outside-shooting team in the nation and they play impressive defense as well. That great offense-defense balance will spell the end of Houston’s run if you ask Fiutak. 


NJ.com – Sam Wilkins

Predicts : Baylor vs. Gonzaga Final

Sam Wilkins of NJ.com believes that it’s going to be Baylor vs. Gonzaga in the national title game. No surprises there. These are two No. 1 seeds who have proven all season long that they are among the best teams in the nation. They both play great offense and defense. Gonzaga gets a semi-bonus in the Final Four as it will have to deal with UCLA, a team that’s making a solid run in the tournament, but will run into a brick wall this Saturday for Wilkins. He also believes that Houston will put up a fight against the Bears, but the latter should end up booking a spot in the national championship game. 


TopBet News Editor – Ryan Simpson

Predicts : Baylor vs. Gonzaga Final

This site’s resident writer is expecting a national finals matchup between the Bears and the Bulldogs. Both are battle-tested in the regular season and in the Big Dance, and both are among the teams expected to go deep in the tournament even before the season began. These two teams were supposed to meet early in the season but got postponed due to COVID issues. There’s no stopping them from meeting head-on, though, this time around. Let’s get it on!
