With the NCAA tournament so close, people want to be able to get a leg up on their colleagues by submitting an NCAA tournament pool that won’t get laughed out of the break room.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that you shouldn’t pick a 16 seed to win the tournament considering a 16 seed has never won a tournament game.
But that doesn’t mean you need to pick a top-seeded team, either.
You can look up statistics all you want to find out your percentage chances of one seed beating another, but that all works until it doesn’t and there’s nothing worse than hearing the team you picked to win the whole thing lost because of something that never happened before in the tournament.
In other words, if past performance could predict future winners, there would be no need for the brackets.
There are many tools out there that you can use to better your chances to win. In some cases, no one in a tournament pool picks the winner and it is in these times you need to put yourself in a position to take advantage.
I have a few rules to share that will help you in your endeavor to be the office pool king or queen.
Other people can copy the experts’ pools, but what’s the fun in picking all the No. 1 seeds?
I have a better way, and now, so do you.
