The NHL trade deadline 2012 is now over, and many Northbet sports fans are getting ready for the NCAA Tournament, and you know that what means: brackets, brackets and more brackets. Offices all over North America (and perhaps beyond) will be getting ready to fill out their brackets and it’s fun for people that don’t even watch college hoops because the Tournament is so unpredictable that anyone has a chance to win. But there are a few things to consider before you set up your bracket contest in order to have maximum fun.
The first thing you need to do is to decide if it is going to be a free bracket contest or a pay-to-play contest, and if it is a pay-to-play contest, the best way to go about it is to make sure you have a deadline for payment and stick to it. Those who bet on March Madness odds will tell you how annoying it is to enter a bracket contest, only to see someone who didn’t pay, because that person will be the first one expect their money after they “win”. If the money isn’t in such-and-such a date, that person is out, it’s that simple.
After that, it’s really quite simple; keep track of the wins and losses and try to set up a system where people can communicate with one another to get a little trash talk going. That makes it more interactive and helps people feel more involved, not to mention, the trash talk can be more entertaining than the actual contest.
Follow these rules and you should have a stress-free March Madness, which allows you to have more time to wager on college basketball spreads.
