Giant Killers' 10 most likely first-round upsets

Let's say, for the sake of discussion, you haven't been following the per-possession intricacies of the Missouri Valley Conference or the Summit League all season, but you still want to win your bracket. Giant Killers has you covered.

One proven method for putting distance between you and your competitors in the bracket pool is correctly picking a small but ultimately crucial number of upsets. Here are the 10 most likely such games in the first round, according to GK methodology.

As always at Giant Killers, we're looking exclusively at games in which an underdog defeats an opponent seeded at least five lines higher. Choose wisely (i.e., don't go with all 10 of these), and watch your bracket ranking soar to new heights. Good luck!
