The boys of the Bucket Squad Sports Reports: Your #1 Source for All Things Sports, are thrilled to announce the debut of our first annual Bucket Squad Sports Reports (Your #1 Source for All Things Sports) Mega March Madness Matchup Monstrosity (BSSR(YNOSFATS)MMMMM for short).
March Madness is without a doubt the greatest tournament event in sports, and millions of people every year fill out tournament brackets in the hopes of defying the 1 in 9.2 quintillion odds and predicting each game accurately. Many of you likely submit brackets on some of the bigger, less reputable websites such as ESPN, CBS, Yahoo, etc. But I'm sure you never feel like part of a tight-knit community on those sites. That's not the case on this site, as our writers have an unblemished record of responding to every interaction that occurs on our website.
As you fill out brackets on other sites, you may be thinking, "does anyone actually win this prize money they claim to offer?" Or, "there's no way I can win out of these MILLIONS of entrants." Well, this is going to be your best chance of earning money by filling out a bracket in the history of online bracket tournament challenges. The BSSR Bracket Challenge is limited to the first 1,000 entrants, so you have (at worst) a 1 in 1,000 shot at claiming the grand prize. All you have to do is take a couple minutes to follow the three simple steps below, and you will enter yourself in the running for $100 and the title of Bucket Squad Sports Reports (Your #1 Source for All Things Sports) Mega March Madness Matchup Monstrosity Champion!
Here's how to enter:
Step 1: Scroll down to the Bracket Submission form below, which follows the tournament details.
Step 2: Cast your vote for who you think will win each matchup. (Note: games are presented in order by round, so you'll pick all of the first round games, then all of the second round games, and so on.)
Step 3: After you've picked all 63 games, scroll down and enter a few basic details so you can be contacted and paid via Cash App or Venmo if you win.
The deadline to enter is Thursday, March 17 at 11:59am EST, or when 1,000 brackets have been submitted (limit one bracket submission per person).
If you win, you will receive the money through either Cash App or Venmo, depending on which one you select in your bracket submission form.
Points earned for correctly picking games will double each round. Thus, correctly picking the final four teams, championship teams, and champion are much more valuable than the early round games. The person with the most points at the end of the tournament is declared the winner. Winners will split the prize money in the event of a tie. The full breakdown is as follows:
You can follow along with how your bracket is performing throughout the tournament by revisiting this page. We will also provide updates after each round of the tournament on our main NCAAB blog page here:
Bucket Squad Sports Reports (Your #1 Source for All Things Sports) primarily provides opinion articles, prediction analysis, and sports betting advice. We will hit somewhat of a dead period after basketball season ends, but be sure to check back in September when football returns, as that is by far our most discussed sport.
Thank you for participating in the Bucket Squad Sports Reports (Your #1 Source for All Things Sports) Mega March Madness Matchup Monstrosity, and best of luck to everyone!
