Kansas and Villanova are tied on winning the most number of matches in the March Madness 2016. They respectively have 40% and 45% chances of being automatically selected in the event which are fair amount of chances considering other teams chances. If selected its almost sure shot that all these teams are going to be the best seeds from the 4 different regions of US. However, placed on the strong team performance, Xavier is expected to win most number of matches in the tournament.

Virginia, Michigan St, Oregon and Oklahoma are the expected second seeds in the tournament. The chances of getting them automatically selected are 24%, 36%, 16% and 18% respectively.

Among the possible second seeds, Michigan St have the most chances of making it to the top albeit to their strong team performance.

North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia represent the possible third seeds which can make it to the tournament. Among them Indiana possibly represents the well balanced team and is expected to be supreme among the third seeds. However, both the second and third seeded teams are equally good. The only reason why they are seeded so is only because of the people's notion. On the field, all these teams are equally capable of giving a tough time to other teams.
