About Our 2013 NCAA Bracket Predictions

The algorithmic bracket picks are generated by sophisticated computer models. These models generate the bracket picks by simulating the entire season including the conference tournaments thousands of times. They then take the most likely season results and assign a seed based on what the committee would most likely do with a similar team profile. We then take teams' expected selection seeding and profiles and simulate the NCAA tournament thousands of times using our power ratings to generate individual matchup probabilities, all of which results in our bracket picks information.
