NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 predictions: Chalk expected to rule

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Not a lot of people are picking upsets in the Sweet 16 round this year.

The 2013 NCAA Tournament continues with the Sweet 16 round on Thursday. The first weekend was as fun, entertaining and unpredictable as any tournament in recent memory, leaving brackets in the dust and tiny schools dunking their way into our hearts. However, this weekend is when the big boys are expected to take over and put Cinderellas in their place.

CBS Sports' panel of experts have their picks in, and they're about as predictable as they get. All four men have Miami, Duke, Louisville, Michigan and Florida beating their respective opponents and moving on to the Elite Eight. Only Matt Norlander was brave enough to pick against Indiana, predicting an upset for Syracuse.

There are only two matchups in which there is any real dissent. Norlander and Jeff Goodman have Arizona beating Ohio St., while Gary Parrish and Jeff Borzello picked the Buckeyes to advance. Goodman and Borzello picked Wichita St. to beat La Salle, and Parrish and Norlander have the Explorers.
