DISCLAIMER: I'm not claiming to be any expert of any kind, but I'm continuing on with my tips on winning your office pool. I've never won my office pool in the 10+ years I've been doing this, but I have come very close, also finished very close to the bottom. Use these tips I've thought of, discovered, read about, and a bit of dumb luck at your own risk.

  • Don't pick a team seeded #16 to #13 into the field of 8. Not once has one ever advanced.
  • Do pick three #1 seeds into the field of 8. 70% of all number 1 seeds have advanced to the fourth round of games.
  • Don't pick a team seeded #16 to #9 into the field of 4, only two times has a team in this range advanced to the field of 4 [George Mason in 2006 was the last]
  • Don't pick a team seeded lower than a #6 to the championship game, not a single one has advanced in the last 21 years.
  • Do pick a seed ranked #4 or higher to win the championship game. For 18 straight years, this has been true.
