You have to pick 2 teams that will advance out of group play (does not matter first place or second place)
For each correct pick, you will be awarded (handsomely) <ONE POINT>.
16 points possible for this round.
Knock out!! Once the bracket is set, you will be asked to predict each game's winner, all the way to the final. (Round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final game)
Round of 16 <TWO POINTS> for each correct pick
Quarter Finals <FOUR POINTS> for each
Semi-Finals <EIGHT POINTS> for each
Final <SIXTEEN POINTS> for picking the winner
In other words, 16 possible points will be up for grabs for each round, for a total of 80 points.
