The math that will win your March Madness pool

posted by Ashley King - 

On Sunday evening, this year’s March Madness bracket will be announced. And, wouldn’t it be nice to actually win this year?

Well, a mathematician who specializes in sports analytics came up with a handful of tips that should give you an edge.

Ignore a team's record – Instead of just looking at how many games a team has won, focus on how well they played on the road and against good teams.

Timing is everything – Teams that are hot leading up to the tournament tend to keep doing well.

Find the Cinderellas – Cinderellas are more likely to be teams that create turnovers, give up very few three-pointers, and take a high percentage of three-pointers.

Don't let your emotions ruin it – If you let hatred for a team dictate your bracket, it's going to hurt you more than them. For the sake of the money, just focus on the math. (Popular Mechanics)
