Create, join, leave, or delete Tourney Pick'em groups

In Tourney Pick'em groups, you earn points by predicting the winning team from each NCAA tournament matchup. The more accurate wins you predict, the more points you earn, then you compete with family, friends, co-workers, or the public for the highest points. Complete a bracket by making all your picks for every game, upfront. It's that simple. Then sit back and enjoy watching the games in hopes that the teams you picked will triumph!

Types of groups you can create or join

  • Public groups - Open to anyone to view and join.
  • "Fans of" groups - Public groups centered around enthusiasm for the same team or player.
  • Private groups - Requires an invitation from the group's commissioner along with an ID and password.
