ESPN's computer has updated its NCAA Tournament projections following the first day of the second round on Saturday.

The first eight games of the second round were fairly boring, outside of the fun finish during LSU-Maryland.

All eight favorites won their second round contests, advancing to the Sweet 16. We've got eight more second round games today.

ESPN's computer has updated its Final Four projection heading into Sunday.

Here are the current picks:

East: No. 1 Duke

Percentage chance: 44.6
