Kenpom is just an indicator of how teams have done this year, not a predictor of each matchup. Although I do think they have a pay service for that.Where Kenpom crapped the bed so far was Utah St./Missouri. Utah St. was ranked as a 5, Missouri a 13.
True, but picking brackets by the higher kenpom seed has been the best way to do a "Chalky" bracket, historically. There's really no better overall metric. I've pretty much cashed in every small bracket pool over the last decade just going with kenpom rankings. Larger pools you need to take risks, though.
