Anthony Caruso III, publisher of The Capital Sports Report, has revealed his NCAA picks just in time for the real start of the Big Dance this afternoon. And with that, there’s a chance that he could win a cool $1 billion from Warren Buffet.

Buffett has agreed to put up the cool $1 billion up for an individual that produces a perfect March Madness tournament bracket. Buffet, who has an estimated $53.5 billion, has the odds on his side.

A few eyebrows were raised when Caruso stuck by the North Carolina Tar Heels and picked them to advance to the Final Four. He has UNC knocking off Iowa State, Villanova and Michigan State before losing to his eventual champion, Florida, in the Final Four.

The Tar Heels have advanced to the Final Four 18 times in school history. In addition, the Tar Heels last appeared in the Final Four in 2009 when they would eventually win their 5th and last national championship.

Florida, who has been ranked No. 1 for the first time since the 2006-07 season, which was the last time they won the March Madness tournament, has not played North Carolina since 2000. North Carolina and Florida hasn’t played since the 2000 National Semifinal in which the Gators won 71-59 over the Tar Heels.

He also has Arizona slipping by Louisville in the other Final Four match-up. Louisville, who won the tournament last year, and Arizona has only played two previous times.

Louisville defeated Arizona in the 2009 regional semi-final, 103-94. And the two teams played for the first time in the 1994 regional semi-final, 82-70.

Among the other surprises projected by Caruso was a nice run by Baylor to the Elite 8 and 3 of the #12 seeds advancing. Oklahoma is the only #5 seed advancing in the Caruso bracket.

“If I have a perfect bracket going into the Final Four, I’ll let Mr. Buffet buy me out for a hundred million or so,” Caruso asserted. “Until then, I won’t quit my day job.”
