The college basketball tournament action is about to tip off--and so is VSiN’s first contest.


The 2017 VSiN Beat The Spread Challenge invites you to pick the winner of every men's college basketball tournament game against the opening line.

We’ll announced those spreads for the first round Sunday during our Selection Sunday Special.

There is no entry fee to play the VSiN Beat The Spread Challenge. You can read the full rules and enter at

First prize for the overall winner is a two-night complimentary stay at South Point Hotel and Casino, $1,000 and an appearance on Musburger's “My Guys in the Desert” show on SiriusXM. Cash prizes of $250 will be awarded to the top point-getter in Rounds 1, 2 and 3.

“The tourney has to be one of the most exhilarating sporting events of the year and we’re thrilled to offer a much more exciting alternative to the standard office pool with our first contest, The VSiN Beat The Spread Challenge,” said Brent Musburger, managing editor and lead host of VSiN. “If you thought picking the winners was tough, try it against the spread. But don’t worry, my ‘Guys in the Desert’ and I will share all the information and analysis folks need to make the smart picks on our Selection Sunday show. Who knows, maybe you’ll walk away with a few bucks in your pocket.”
