The Science Behind the Perfect Bracket



Mar 10th, 2015

Bracket Madness

During the month of March, most Americans have gone basketball crazy and spend hours trying to perfect their perfect bracket.  Never fear, for we here at Albertsons have spent the countless hours for you and found some tried and true methods of filling out a complete and fool-proof bracket.

Some of our most successful methods are:

The Fido Method
Take the two logos of the two teams going head to head and put treats on top of both.  Then put them on the floor and whichever one your dog eats first will be the winner in that round.  It’s a win-win for you AND your pooch.

Mascot v. Mascot
Take the two teams and pair up their Mascots.  Who would win in a knock-down, drag-out fight?  The obvious mascot victor will also be your winner in the match up.  It’s science.

Color Method
Not a fan of bright orange?  Then that team is the obvious loser in that pair.  Pick the color that makes you happy and the team tied to that color will also make you happy on the court.

The Coin Method
Because who better to trust than fate with a coin that dons a face of one of our Founding Fathers?  This method is not only sound but downright patriotic.

The Underdog Method
Every year, there are those teams that are touted as being the “worst” or have “no chance” of making it to the end.  Why not pick them?  You’ll look like the psychic that predicted 2015’s Cinderella story.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how we created the perfect bracket.
