Scoring

In addition to traditional scoring, we will be employing Seed Differential bonus points. Seed difference bonuses give bonus points for picking lower-seeded teams correctly. If you correctly select a lower-seeded team, you will earn a bonus of the difference between the seeds times the bonus multiplier for the round. For example, if you correctly picked a 10th seeded team over a 6th seed in round two, and round two has a multiplier of 3, you would earn (10 - 6) * 3 = 12 bonus points.

Round Correct Seed Difference Multiplier
Round of 64 1 pts 1 x seed diff
Round of 32 2 pts 1 x seed diff
Reg. Semis 4 pts 1 x seed diff
Reg. Finals 8 pts 1 x seed diff
Semifinals 16 pts 1 x seed diff
Championship 32 pts 1 x seed diff
