With the likes of Princeton and Florida Atlantic making runs, while bluebloods Kansas and Purdue fall by the wayside, surely more than a few March Madness brackets have busted. Those who fall in that camp are in luck, though, because we’re giving you a mulligan. TheLines.com is hosting a free second chance bracket contest this weekend, plus daily contests, with a total of $900 in available prizes.
Read on for more details on how to sign up and win over at play.thelines.com.
$500 March Madness Leaderboard Challenge! Make your FREE picks for The Sweet 16 and Elite 8 this week and win your share of a $500 guaranteed prize pool.
1. Bracket Contest: March Hoops Weekend Leaderboard Challenge 2
The $500 March Hoops Weekend Leaderboard Challenge begins Thursday, March 23 with the first day of NCAA Sweet 16 action.
Users will make a straight-up winner pick for every game over the entire weekend. Correct picks are rewarded based on the moneyline odds for that game. Bigger underdogs that win earn more points.
For example, Florida Atlantic ( on the moneyline), would earn 190 points for those who pick them, while Tennessee () would earn 41.7.
Contrast that with Gonzaga (). A Gonzaga win would earn 105 points, while a UCLA () win would earn 80 — this reflects the closeness of that game from a betting standpoint.
Users accumulate points across all four days from Thursday through Sunday. The ones earning the top three scores win Amazon gift card prizes:
1st place $250
2nd place $150
3rd place $100
The contest is already open and users can make picks. Good luck in this free second chance bracket contest.
2. Perfect Score Challenge
The $100 Perfect Score Challenge has also returned after a four-day run last week. Its format should be familiar to regular players on play.thelines.com. Each day, 10 two-way markets will get posted. Users make picks and try to sweep the board with 10 correct Whoever picks all 10 correctly will earn a $100 Amazon gift card. In the event of a tie, the tiebreaker will determine the winner.
Enjoy these free bracket contests courtesy of TheLines, and good luck with your picks.
