It's the most wonderful time of the year basketball fans. The madness of March has returned and the field of 65 is set.

Whatifsports.com is excited to follow-up its NCAA basketball championship predictions of 2008 (Kansas) and 2009 (North Carolina) by accurately predicting the 2010 NCAA basketball champion. Our award-winning college basketball simulation engine has "played" the NCAA basketball tournament 2000 times. Our predictions are based on each team's statistical make-up and are adjusted for roster trends including each player's average minutes per game and injuries.

So, after 2000 simulations of the 2010 NCAA basketball tournament the computers select the Kansas Jayhawks (26.4-percent chance of winning championship) as the favorite to win the national championship. The computer simulations predict Syracuse has the second best chance of winning the title. The Orange have a 17.6-percent chance of winning it all in Indy. (Note: Our simulation ran with Arinze Onuaku in the line-up.)

The shock and awe Whatifsports.com Final Four prediction of the tournament is Baylor. The 3-seed Bears have the third highest chance (8.7-percent) of cutting down the nets in Indianapolis.

Duke, (6.2-percent) followed by West Virginia and Kentucky (4.9-percent), round out the tournament favorites heading into round one.
