Chuck’s Third Annual Final 5 Contest

March 17, 2024 - by David Arnett


Welcome to the world’s simplest NCAA Tourney pool! 

Instead of picking all 63 games you only need to pick the Final Four and (for tiebreaker purposes) the winner and total points for the Championship game. And, best of all, it’s free!

Just click here to enter. And if you’re new to Chuck, make sure to grab our App (also free!) to track the Final 5 Standings, play our two daily games (Chuckle and The Starting 5,) and enjoy the best curated sports feed you’ve ever seen.

Contest Scoring

You get points for each correct Final Four team based on their seed in the tournament. 

So for example, for last year’s tournament, if you correctly picked UConn (4), San Diego St. (5), Miami (FL) (5), and FAU (9), you would have gotten the maximum possible score of 23 (i.e. 4 + 5 + 5 + 9 = 23

By contrast if you had chosen all four #1 seeds you would have gotten a total score of 0: Kansas (0), Alabama (0), Houston (0), and Purdue (0)

Highest score wins the Grand Prize ($250-$1,000, see Additional Terms below for details.) It’s as simple as that.

Ties will be settled by:

  1. Choosing the correct National Champion from among your four selected Regional Champions.
  2. Total Points scored in the National Championship game (closest guess in either direction wins.)

In the event of any remaining unsettled tie, a randomized drawing of the tied first place entries will be conducted to determine who wins the Grand Prize.
