Former president Barack Obama unveils his picks for men's, women's NCAA Tournaments

Barack Obama reveals bracket for NCAA Tournament, picks Michigan State

Barack Obama Reveals His NCAA Tournament Bracket

Barack Obama's picks from the 2018 NCAA tournament are in - and he's taking a bit of a risk in the men's bracket.

Donald Trump (45) won't do one. but Barack Obama (44) is still filling out his March Madness bracket - and he's picking Michigan State - a 3 seed - to win it all!

Obama has the Spartans beating Bucknell, Syracuse, Duke, and top-seeded Kansas to reach the Final Four along with defending national champion North Carolina, Villanova, and Virginia.

Obama also dropped his bracket for the women's NCAA Tournament as well. Unsurprisingly, the longtime Chicago native has Loyola-Chicago knocking off Miami in a 6-11 showdown in the South.

Obama has Kentucky's other tournament team, Murray State, losing the first round to West Virginia.

Beyond a few 7-10 upsets, Obama is sticking with the chalk this year. Like previous year, Obama has the Huskies - who enter the tournament with a flawless 32-0 record once again - winning it all, even after MSU (32-1) pulled off the upset last fall.

Obama also has UConn, Notre Dame, Mississippi State and Louisville in the women's bracket, with UConn beating Mississippi State in the final game.

He declined an invitation a year ago from ESPN to do so on-air, as Obama did during his presidency.
