NCAA March Madness betting just got real when President Obama revealed his bracket to the world yesterday. When the most powerful person on the planet gives his considered opinion on a matter like March Madness betting, we here at RealBet all take note.
The POTUS is no stranger to basketball having played since the moment his father gave him a ball at a young age. The future 44th President went on to eventually start in his senior year for the Punahou Academy, an elite private school in Honolulu, which at the time was one of the best high school basketball teams in the country. Although he never played in his college years, the talented left shot has been a keen baller in his downtime ever since.
NCAA March Madness Betting – Obama’s Bracket
So I think we can all agree that regardless of our political stripes, it’s nice to have a real sports enthusiast in the White House. So without further ado let’s take a look at the Commander-in-Chief’s bracket.
Once again the President has gone with the Kansas Jayhawks to win it all, beating the University of North Carolina Tar Heels “in a squeaker”. This is not the first time Obama has picked the Jayhawks to take home the hardware having picked them unsuccessfully in 2010 and 2011. The President has only picked the correct team once although most of his picks have been Elite 8 or Final Four. Notable 2016 picks are:
- Kansas beating Villanova
- Hawaii upsetting Cal
- A&M stuffing Duke
- UNC surprising Michigan
March Madness Tips – Jayhawks Win
Ultimately Barrack Obama’s Final Four bracket comes down to the University of Kansas Jayhawks vs. the Texas A&M Aggies, and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels vs. the Michigan State Spartans. The Prez then has the Jayhawks and the Tar Heels advancing to the national championship where the Kansas Jayhawks triumph.
At the end of the day, I have the Michigan State Spartans beating the Jayhawks and winning it all in my bracket and I am still pretty happy with that choice. Still, it gives one pause for thought any time the person who commands the largest collection of nuclear missiles on the planet puts forth an opinion- perhaps it is Kansas’ year after all!
