Contestants must also enter their guess for the total combined final match score (winning team points + losing team points). In the event of a tie, the closest guess to the total final score will determine the winner. If there is still a tie, it will go to most correct picks of the tournament games.

Contestants must have their bracket complete AND submitted by 9:00am on March 19, 2021 to be eligible for the prize at the end of the contest period. After each round of games is played, brackets will update to the overall standings leaderboard. Contestants will earn points for each correct pick, with a multiplier for successive rounds (Round 2 – 1 point per correct pick, Round 3 – 2 points per correct pick, Round 4 – 4 points per correct pick, Round 5 – 8 points per correct pick, Round 6 – 16 points per correct pick, Round 7 – 32 points per correct pick).
