NCAA Picks Contest

Pick’em Madness Contest

Throughout the entirety of March Madness, seven members of OddsShark’s content team will be going head-to-head, making two betting picks daily for every tournament game day. Each contestant will be playing for $1,000 to donate to a charity of their choice. The contestant with the best overall record at the end of the tournament wins and we’ve raised the stakes by allowing the Sportsbook to choose the punishment for whoever finishes in last place.

To see the contestants’ daily picks, follow us on Instagram @oddssharksports to find out who the guys like and on Twitter @OddsShark for updates, alerts and up-to-date standings.


Tell us which contestant has your favorite pick of the day by commenting on the Instagram pick posts to enter to win a $500 gift card to be used for tickets to any sporting event in North America.* You can enter the contest once every single game day during the tournament and every time you enter it’s another ballot toward the draw!

Visit our March Madness main page for the rest of your tournament betting needs.

*Prize will be awarded in the form of a $500 US digital gift card. No purchase necessary. Sportsbook has 30 days and must correctly answer a mathematical skill-testing question to claim the prize. The prize will be drawn at the end of the tournament.
