Default Most and Less likely upsets in Sweet 16?

Of the 8 games in the Sweet 16, which do you think are the most and least likely to be upsets?

I'd say the least likely games to be upsets are the Florida/Butler game and the Kansas/Southern Illinois.

Most likely are the Memphis/Texas A&M and UNC/USC games.

How do you see the upset in the Memphis/Texas A&M game?

why? Honestly, they have nothing that really proves that except with watching them and making your own opinion. Look at the teams they have played for intance. Every team they beat was from conference USA, a weak conference with no ranked teams and even UNT was keeping up with them.

They played three ranked teams, losing to Arizona and Georgia Tech and beating kentucky 80-63.

Not really impressive and aTm has shown they can compete with the best and come in the clutch with Acie Law and thats why most people pick aTm to win.

And freethrow shooting will kill them in close games.

Memphis. A&M may have struggled at times, but over the length of the season the Aggies are a MUCH MUCH better free throw shooting team than Memphis.

I think that the most likely upset is the UNC-USC game USC is playing great ball in the tournament. A&M will beat Memphis, becuase it will probably come down to free throws and Memphis does not shoot them well at all. Even if their coach thinks they will make them down the stretch.

Least likey to be upset is Florida, Butler is just not good enough to beat Florida right now if everything clicks it could be a blowout.
