Beat the Spread Pool

Rules

  • There is a maximum of 64 players/teams. The play-in games do not count.
  • Pay $50
  • Each entry will be randomly assigned to a Region and Seed. The Selection Committee will fill it in with a team on Selection Sunday.
  • If you purchase multiple entries, I will place them in different regions, alternating sides of the bracket as they are drawn.
  • The spreads will lock before the day's first game (Source for spreads: 1betvegas). At that time, I will fill in the Bracket on this website, so you can see every game's spread. The spread will not change. The time in which the spreads lock will vary depending on my availability to update the website.
  • Beat the spread to each game to move forward in the bracket (see Scenarios below).
  • If there is a push (where a game ends exactly on the spread). The person who owns the underdog wins the game, will move forward with opponent's team.
  • Your payout will be determined on which round you do NOT cover the spread (ex. In the Elite 8, your team loses the game and does not cover the Spread, you would get paid $125 and be eliminated).
  • $100 from pot is removed for Web/Admin fees
  • Payouts will be dispersed at the end of the tournament.

SCENARIOS

  1. You win the game and cover the Spread: You move forward with your team
  2. You lose the game, but you cover the Spread: You move forward with your opponent's team
  3. You win the game, but you don't cover the Spread: You are eliminated and your opponent moves forward with your team
  4. You lose the game and you don't cover the Spread: You are eliminated and your opponent moves forward with their team
  5. You win the game, but land exactly on the Spread. You are eliminated and your opponent moves forward with your team
  6. You lose the game, but land exactly on the Spread. You move forward with your opponent's team

Example of how it works

North Carolina - Jason Leitner_|

                                                  ________UNC -3.5

Duke - Adam Johnson              |


This would mean that North Carolina has to beat Duke by 4 or more points.


If North Carolina won by 6, Jason Leitner would continue to the next round with North Carolina and Adam Johnson would be eliminated.

If North Carolina won by 2, Adam Johnson would continue to the next round with North Carolina and Jason Leitner would be eliminated.
