There are many different ways to navigate through the madness of March, but the way to make the tournament the most fun to watch—and the brackets the most fun to fill out—is to diversify.

Some people find more integrity in having just one bracket each year, as if winning a tournament challenge with your friends or taking home first prize in the office pool has anything to do with integrity. It has to do with winning, so who really cares if you won on your first or your 50th bracket as long as you take home the cash and/or bragging rights year after year?

Think of the NCAA tournament bracket as a stock portfolio. Why would you put all your money on one stock—even a safe pick without a lot of risk—if you could diversify and throw a little extra juice on a few stocks with a tad more upside?

Remember, even in a year like this with a wide-open field, most people will pick the top seeds to win it all. Throwing in an upset-laden bracket could be a high risk, but it may yield enormous reward in your neighborhood pool.

With that, here are some tips for filling out multiple NCAA tournament brackets. As always, the first tip is to never invest so much that you can't enjoy the tournament for what it is…flat-out madness.
