Two Things You Need To Know While Filling Out Your NCAA Tournament Bracket

2013 final four ball

If you haven’t filled out a bracket yet, you are running out of time. Games start at noon eastern time tomorrow, which gives you just under 24 hours to fill out your bracket, and spend  time tweaking it.  Up until then, you can still join the Dubsism Bracket Challenge.

But when it comes to your bracket, there’s two facts you may want to consider, and they both come from people who know more than you do…there’s the odds-makers in Las Vegas, and there’s what the NBA guys think of some talent on these teams.

One comment on “Two Things You Need To Know While Filling Out Your NCAA Tournament Bracket

  1. Odd that they’ve got the Gators favored, huh? There’s some good value on that board though.

    The good news is I’m in second place in my local bar pool ($25 buy-in, 40 entries). The bad news is I’m sucking in yours.

    Oh, well. We all can’t be winners.
