Brackets For Tournaments, Don’t pick more than two No. 1 seeds to make the Final Four
Three No. 1 seeds advancing to the Final Four is rare. That’s happened four times in the 27-year history of the modern NCAA tournament. And forget about having all four No. 1s go that far; 2008 was the first and last time that feat was accomplished. The numbers say your best bet is to put two No. 1 seeds in the Final Four and fill out the other half with a No. 3 seed and Butler. And, yes, we’re aware Butler isn’t in the tournament this year. That only slightly hinders their chances of advancing to a third-straight Final Four.
Don’t pick crazy upsets, particularly late in the tournament
No NCAA pool was ever won on the first weekend, but plenty have been lost, mainly by people who thought it was a good idea to pick against a tourney favorite in the round of 32. Smaller pools tend to be won by those who play it relatively safe. Granted, defying the odds and successfully picking Creighton over North Carolina will be a bracket story you can tell your grandkids, who will then beat you in an NCAA tournament pool because you’re the kind of person who picks Creighton over North Carolina.
