Washington's sports guru, CNN's Wolf Blitzer, is sticking to hometown Georgetown University to take the NCAA basketball crown.

"My bracket prediction record over the years is weak. But I sense this could be my year," said Blitzer, a student and courtside fan of Washington's college and professional sports teams. "I think it's Georgetown's year as well. They just need to win six games in a row. And they can."

Blitzer, who hosts The Situation Room, told Secrets that he expects the final four teams to include Georgetown, Louisville, Ohio State and Miami. He picked Ohio State to lose to Georgetown in the final.

Picking Georgetown could be a money-maker for Blitzer. President Obama chose a more conventional bracket of Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Ohio State in the Final Four, with Indiana taking the crown.
