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|
