The former president also chose North Carolina, Memphis and UCLA to get to San Antonio. Clinton made his predictions on James Carville's and Luke Russert's XM Radio show.
Georgetown, a No. 2 seed, opens Friday against 15th-seeded Maryland-Baltimore County, a newcomer to the NCAAs.
When asked who would win the title, Clinton said: ``My heart's with Georgetown, but my head tells me it's going to be Carolina or Memphis.
``If you look at Carolina, they have been able to run with everybody this year, as well as play that powerful inside game, which is why I kind of favor them.''
In what appears to be agreement cutting across the political spectrum, Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain have said they are going with the Tar Heels.
Obama also has Kansas, Pittsburgh and UCLA in the Final Four, with North Carolina beating UCLA in the championship game. McCain put Kansas, Memphis and Connecticut in his Final Four bracket on his Web site. He predicts North Carolina will defeat UConn in the final.
