Using the remaining 16 team NCAA Tournament bracket, choose who you think will win each game all the way to the championship.
Points will be awarded for each correct pick according to the point structure below.
Additional points will be awarded for the seed number of the winning teams you choose.
Each correct pick in the Sweet 16: 4 points
Each correct pick in the Elite 8: 8 points
Each correct pick in the Final Four: 16 points
Correct Pick in the Championship Game: 32 points
The seed of the winning team is added to your point total. Since anyone can pick the higher ranking teams and do relatively well, a twist has been added to reward those that pick upset winners.
#10 seed wins in Elite 8 Round: If you choose #10 seed, you receive 18 points for that correct pick.
(10 (seed) + 8 (correct pick in Elite 8) = 18 points)
You must get the pick correct in order to get the bonus points
The winner is the entry that accumulates the most points according to their correct picks, and additional points will become the March Madness Sweet 16 champion. (It is not the most correct picks but the most points accumulated)
If there is a tie, the player who selects the total score of the championship game closest (high or low) will be the winner. If there is still a tie, payout will be split by the number of entries tied
To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.
