There are Four Play-In Games. We do not include these games in our pool.
(Extra points awarded for correctly picking an upset. Example: if you pick a 9 seed over a 4 seed in the Sweet 16, you would get 3 points for the round plus a bonus 1.5 pts for the upset for a total of 4.5 pts.)
Upset Scoring: To get points for the Upset Scoring, a player must correctly pick a team to win a certain game AND that team must win the game as an upset (regardless of who they play as long as they are seeded higher)
Alabama (#15 seed) over Kentucky (#7 seed) in a 3rd Round Game. With Upset Scoring, if Alabama beats the lower seeded team, then picking Alabama would net you 1 point for the 3rd Round pick plus 1 point for the Upset Scoring. Total would be three points just for that pick.
#5 Kearney State vs. #12 Minnesota State. If you pick Minnesota State in the second round, you get 1 point for the 2nd Round points and an Upset bonus of .5 points.
#4 Tennessee vs. #13 Delaware. You select Delaware and Tennessee wins, you earn zero points.

Tie-breakers are only used for first place. If there is a tie for 2nd on, winnings are split.
The NCAA released their team replacement policy in regard to COVID-19. Should any team opt out or not be cleared to play, here is how we will handle the tournament pool:
At least the Top 10 finishers will be paid out the remaining payout pool once props and powerplay have been taken out.
100% of payout is guaranteed for those paying before end of day of the first Thursday of the tournament.
Entry fees received after receive 80% of payouts.
For late fees received after the second round of the tournament, payouts are 50%.
