Filling out multiple brackets is a controversial strategy to some people, but it's very commonly practiced.
There are a lot of things to keep in mind when you're in more than one bracket pool. Most important of all, though, don't be that guy.
You know the type.
The guy that fills out 20 brackets and then brags about going 15-of-16 in the Thursday games in one of his pools. The guy who starts all of his sentences in March with, "In one of my brackets." The guy who doesn't even know who he's rooting for in most games because either result would be acceptable for some of his brackets.
Nobody likes that guy.
Feel free to fill out as many brackets as you want, but just pick one that's actually yours and roll with it.
