Confidence Pool for College Basketball Tournament
What is a Confidence Pool?
The Confidence Pool is a variation to the normal Tournament bracket Office Pool. Participants will rank the 68 teams in the tournament from 1 to 68, with the team they think will win the tournament being number 68. When a team wins, the participant is awarded the corresponding number of points. The person with the highest point total at the end of the tournament wins. Here is a complete list of our Office Pools for College Basketball Tourney. Begin this pool by getting the Printable Bracket. The steps below explain how to run this pool.
Step 1Print one of the brackets from above and hand a copy to friends, family and co-workers. Our bracket will be updated once the pairings have been announced.
Step 2We typically don't use the play-in games in our pools, although it's not necessary we believe the play-in games should be incorporated in to this pool. The participants will rank each team from 1 to 68. The team thought to win the tournament should be ranked number 68.
Winning the Pool
Each time a team wins, the participant will receive the corresponding number of points(points = rank). The participant with the most number of points at the end of the tournament is the winner. For a tie-breaker have each person write down what they think will be the total number of points scored in the championship game.
