Bracket VII - KenPom Plus Location/Venue of Game - Texas beats Purdue for Title

 Note: click here for the bracket results for all 8 methods.

The 7th Factor to consider in brackets is factoring in the venue of where the game is played. Long travel hurts teams, and also having already played in an arena in conference play to have conference fans on your side can help.

This table starts with "how good," or how much better or worse a team is than the average team in the tournament. Then we rank if each of their first two venues should make them a bit better or a bit worse. Houston would be at home for the Final Four, but this table just covers the first two weekends.

For example, Alabama is about 22 points better than the average team, but playing in Birmingham is worth an extra three points to them, so make the 25 better than the field there.
