For those new to Cover5 or our NCAA Tournament Game., here is a refresher on the rules and our scoring system:
1. Pick 5 Teams each day during the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament.
*The lines will come out for Saturday’s games on Friday morning.
*The lines will come out for Sunday’s games on Saturday morning.
2. Score points on your picks based on how your team does against the spread.
Duke – 7 Mercer
Final Score: Duke 76-Mercer 60
If you took Duke, you scored +9 points for that game.
(Margin of Victory for Duke (16) subtract the spread (7) = 9 points)
If you took Mercer, you scored -9 points for that game
(Margin of defeat (16) plus the spread (7) = -9 points)
3. Add up all 5 of your games to get your score for the day
Duke +9, Wisconsin +6, UCSB -8, Florida +10, San Diego State -5
Daily Total = +12 points
4. Add up all four days (Thu-Sun) for your overall total score
Thu +12, Fri +23, Sat +45, Sun -6
Overall Total = +74 points
