Web site uses math to pick NCAA winnersPosted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) _ How to pick March Madness winners in the office pool: best mascots, coolest uniforms, favorite team colors?. For Tom Adams, it's all about the math. His Web site -- poologic-dot-com -- calculates the advantage of picking an upset versus the favorite in the brackets. In a standard-scoring pool, the program doesn't offer users much of an assist. But in a pool where picking upsets earns extra points, it can be a winner.
Adams warns against picking teams that are Number One in the polls and that are local favorites. This year, he said he's entering four brackets with Kansas, North Carolina, Texas A-and-M and U-C-L-A as champs.
He guesses his system could have won 250-thousand dollars in office pools since it went on line seven years ago.
