NCAA Tournament handicapping contest


LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL MADNESS CHALLENGE

The Review-Journal’s Adam Hill, Kelly Stewart and Matt Youmans compete against handicappers Bruce Marshall, Paul Stone and Ken Thomson in a contest covering NCAA Tournament games Thursday through today. Each contestant selects four games against the spread, sides or totals, choosing from the eight games on today’s betting board. Three of the picks are worth one point, and a Best Bet counts for two points. Any push is worth a half-point. The national champion pick is the tiebreaker.
