March Madness

This is different than your everyday March Madness Bracket Pool. Instead of filling out an entire bracket, you pick one team from each seed to represent your line up through the entire tournament.

You choose one of the 1-seed’s, one of the 2-seeds, etc. Each game your team wins scores you points (how awesome!).

Each line-up you want to submit is $10. All money taken in will be paid back out to winners. Payouts will be determined after all line-ups and payments are received. 

To submit a lineup, fill out the form below! Please send payments via paypal to btyler182@gmail.com. Payments other than paypal can be given to Brad in any various forms. Please contact Brad via email.

Scoring is simple, each team that wins gets points. You get points based on the seed as follows:
  • 1-seed = 10 points
  • 2-seed = 11 points
  • 3-seed = 12 points
  • 4-seed = 13 points
  • 5-seed = 14 points
  • 6-seed = 15 points
  • 7-seed = 16 points
  • 8-seed = 17 points
  • 9-seed = 18 points
  • 10-seed = 19 points
  • 11-seed = 20 points
  • 12-seed = 21 points
  • 13-seed = 22 points
  • 14-seed = 23 points
  • 15-seed = 24 points
  • 16-seed = 25 points
Good luck and have fun!
