Race To The Bottom IN DraftKings Zero Right March Madness Challenge

In a normal bracket challenge, you try to pick winners, with points escalating the further the contest gets. That is, if you pick teams that win games farther into the tournament, you gain more points than if you pick winners in early rounds.

The DraftKings Zero Right Bracket Challenge for March Madness works exactly the same, except the goal is to score zero points. Each correct pick earns points based on the following scoring criteria:

  • 1 point for each correct first-round pick
  • 2 points for each correct second-round pick
  • 5 points for each correct Sweet 16 pick
  • 10 points for each correct Elite 8 pick
  • 25 points for each correct Final 4 pick
  • 50 points for correctly picking the winner of the tournament

At the end of the contest, the person who has scored the fewest points wins $100,000. If multiple entries tie, they’ll split the $100K.

Avoiding points later in the tournament should be easy enough, but the key will be picking the fewest early-round winners. Obviously, sweeping the board in the first round will assure a final score of zero. Avoiding the March Madness upset predictions that come home will help keep your score as low as possible.
