The 2019 NCAA Tournament has been extremely chalky so far, with basically all of the top seeds advancing to the Sweet 16.

All 12 of the NCAA Tournament's top seeds made it to the third round of the tournament, with just one double-digit seed (No. 12 Oregon) also making it.

Is the chalkiness going to continue in the Sweet 16?

According to ESPN's computer: Mostly.

ESPN's Basketball Power Index is predicting just two upsets in the third round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament.

ESPN's BPI has No. 3 Purdue "upsetting" No. 2 Tennessee and No. 3 Texas Tech taking down No. 2 Michigan tonight.

Both games are expected to be extremely close, though, with the projected point difference being less than a full point.
