How Do I Fill Out My Bracket?
Filling out a March Madness bracket can be overwhelming. Even if you’re not a die-hard college basketball fan, it’s not easy. The fact that you have to choose a winner across 34 matchups in the first week highlights this. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Print out your March Madness bracket. Everything is digital nowadays, but there’s nothing like having a tangibl paper bracket and a pencil. Make sure you choose a bracket that has enough room to write. We have our own you can print out.
- Do your research. While it’s impossible to predict the future, it’s helpful to have some knowledge of the teams and their records. Look at the stats for each team and their performance in the regular season. This will help you make more informed decisions when filling out your bracket.
- Don’t be afraid to take risks. Upsets happen all the time in March Madness, in fact that’s what makes March Madness. So don’t be afraid to pick a lower seed to win a game or even go all the way to the Final Four. This is where the excitement of the tournament lies, and you might just end up with the perfect bracket. ESPN recommends that you choose at least one 12-5 upset to happen.
- Follow your gut. At the end of the day, your bracket is your own. If you are familiar with a team, don’t feel like you have to follow what everyone else is doing or what the experts are saying. If you have a feeling about a certain team, go with it. It’s all part of the fun.
What Do I Do Once My Bracket is Filled Out?
Once your bracket is filled out, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the games. If you’re part of an office pool, you’ll want to keep track of your picks by checking the tournament schedule and filling in the winners as the games are played. If you’re competing with friends or family, you can compare brackets to see who’s winning.
