NCAA Tournament 2013 bracket predictions: Louisville the trendy favorite to win it all

USA TODAY Sports

Everybody is on the Louisville bandwagon this season, with plenty of experts picking them to win the NCAA Tournament.

The greatest period of the sports year is finally here. March Madness tips off on Thursday, and nearly everybody has their brackets filled out. If you're still trying to decide on your Final Four, here's what some experts around the Internet think.

SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean released his official bracket prediction, and he has Louisville, Gonzaga, Florida and Indiana in his Final Four, with the Cardinals winning it all. He also has 11th-seeded UCLA falling to No. 6 Minnesota in the second round.

Over at CBS Sports, eight out of their 13 experts picked Louisville to win. Out of the five outliers, Gregg Doyel picked Ohio State, Matt Norlander and Wally Szczerbiak both have Gonzaga, Pete Gillen went with Miami, and Doug Gottlieb picked Indiana.

Finally, President Barack Obama has filled out his annual bracket. He didn't make too many surprising picks, going with Louisville, Indiana, Florida and Ohio State for his Final Four and picking Louisville to win. I'm sure that played well with the northern Kentucky constituents.
