So here is how this will work. At the point there are 16 teams left in the NCAAMBB tournament. There will be a random draw of the teams. Each game (8) will be played using an official point spread. How this works is... the team that wins has to cover the spread. For instance... todays game Virginia Tech +5.5 vs Cincinnati -5.5 (all spreads will go to the half point favoring the underdog if it's even). Using this game for comparison it's not actual. Let's Say the final score is Cincy 80 and VT 70 ... Cincy would cover by more than the 5.5 and that person with Cincy moves on with them to the next round... Elite 8 after that round it's the final 4 and then the championship game. However if VT wins out right they move on.... NOW....this is where the fun is.... say the score is Cincy 80 and VT 77, you add the 5.5 to VT and now VT wins and the person that has VT now takes Cincinnati from the person who had them and continues on with them as there new team and the original Cincinnati owner is now out because the favorite didn't cover the spread. This applies to each game as the brackets continues to the final Championship game where there is ultimately a winner. That person wins the jack pot that will be $160 )everyone's $10 entry. Again everyone will be given a team by random drawing... so it's actually a luck thing, no sports skill involved. Just using sports to create the contest and follow along for the fun and maybe be a winner.
