I'm looking to get a group of ten or so friends together to have a point betting system for the 2013 NBA playoffs. The scoring will be as follows:
First Round: 1 point for a correct prediction of a winner
Second: 3 points
Conference Finals: 7 points
Championship: 15 points
If, during any round, you guess the correct number of games for the series, it is 1 bonus point. That brings the total for each round to 16 possible points and 64 for the entire bracket."
I'm thinking of doing a simple $40 buy in and whoever gets the most points wins it all. Or would it be better to have the top two - three players paid out? Since it'll be a pretty small group of around ten or so people, would that even make sense to pay out the top 3?
Also, I will be setting up a Facebook group to track progress and to upload everyone's brackets. And I will make sure to have everyone send their brackets straight to me so I can post it a day before the playoffs start. I think that is a better idea then everyone posting it in the Facebook group so no one decides to change their minds after they look at someone else's bracket.
Any suggestions or tips? Thank you.
