2013 NCAA bracket: Predictions for Sweet 16 and Elite 8

USA TODAY Sports

The experts submit their picks for the next round of games in the NCAA Tournament.

We're down to the final 16 teams in this year's NCAA Tournament, which has featured plenty of upsets, especially in the West bracket.

Three teams with two digits in their seeds still remain in the tournament, including the La Salle Explorers, Oregon Ducks and Florida Gulf Coast Eagles. All of them have tough matchups in the Sweet 16, facing the Wichita St. Shockers, Louisville Cardinals and Florida Gators, respectively. As far as the experts are concerned, every Cinderella's time at the ball will end Thursday or Friday as they face arguably their toughest opponents yet.

CBS Sports' panel of college basketball experts unanimously believe Louisville and Florida will get past Oregon and FGCU, but the Explorers are thought to at least have a fighting chance. Jeff Goodman and Jeff Borzello both like La Salle to beat Wichita St., while Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander prefer the Shockers squad.

The experts are also evenly split on the outcome of the Arizona and Ohio St. game, while Matt Norlander is the only one to take the Syracuse Orange against the Indiana Hoosiers.
