March Madness bracket predictions 2013: Louisville, Indiana consistent Final Four picks

Need a little help filling out your bracket? Here's a hint: Go with Louisville and Indiana.

It's now that time of year. The time of year when Tyus Edney, Bryce Drew, Harold Arceneaux and Lorenzo Charles become household names.

It's March Madness.

And, of course, the staple of March Madness is the bracket: a simple sheet of paper with the names of 64 schools covering its surface and the originator of office pools and hours of water cooler discussions across the country.

There's no doubt that just about everyone could use a little help filling out their brackets. Sure, you could just pick the higher seed to win every game, but what fun is that? Plus, as the years go by, more and more upsets happen, rendering the chalk strategy largely unsuccessful.

Still confused? Well, today is your lucky day, as we have a few bracket predictions to help you in your quest for workplace bragging rights.

SB Nation bracket expert Chris Dobbertean, who is always astonishingly successful in projecting the teams that make it to the Big Dance, has made his picks. Our resident bracketologist has Louisville, Gonzaga, Florida and Indiana in the Final Four, so take note.

Jay Bilas at ESPN.com goes mostly chalk in his predictions, but throws a few surprises in along the way in ending up with a Final Four of Louisville, Ohio State, VCU and Indiana.

Finally, the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, has filled out his annual bracket, predicting a Final Four featuring Louisville, Ohio State, Florida and Indiana, per ESPN Media Zone's Michael Humes. The President's full bracket will be unveiled on Wednesday.
