I am using Underdog Scoring and the program is not scoring my pool correctly. Why?
The most common reason for this is simply a misunderstanding of how Underdog Scoring works in the program. The main thing to remember is that a player MUST make an underdog pick to be rewarded for underdog points.
So, to get points for Underdog Scoring a player must correctly pick a team to win a certain game as an underdog AND that team must win the game as an underdog (regardless of who they play).
Let's use the following example:
Player A picks a #7 Seed to beat a #2 Seed (this IS an underdog pick)
Player B picks a #7 Seed to beat a #15 Seed (this IS NOT an underdog pick)
If #7 Seed beats #2 Seed - Underdog Points are awarded to Player A but not Player B
If #7 Seed beats #15 Seed - Points are NOT awarded to either player
See the Tutbo Tourney Online Manual for more details and scoring examples.
