Last night (Sunday), the 2022 March Madness bracket was revealed for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Which means, of course, it’s time to start filling out those brackets. The first time I tried doing this, I won. Total fluke!
Wouldn’t it be nice for you to win this year?
A mathematician who specializes in sports analytics came up with a handful of tips that should give you an edge.
- Ignore a team's record -- Instead of just looking at how many games a team has won, focus on how well they played on the road and against good teams.
- Timing is everything -- Teams that are hot leading up to the tournament tend to keep doing well.
- Find the Cinderellas -- Cinderellas are more likely to be teams that create turnovers, give up very few three-pointers, and take a high percentage of three-pointers.
- Don't let your emotions ruin it -- If you let hatred for a team dictate your bracket, it's going to hurt you more than them. For the sake of the money, just focus on the math.
Do you think these tips might help you actually win this year?! I hope so.
