Tanner Holden putting on a clinic. 20 points at hand on only 9

Great start for Wiz. Holden's 37 would've been the top game last year ($75).

And 29 from TJD! And 2 wins. He is off to a massive head start. I’d bet 37 has a strong chance at top game this year.

Beat me to it. We must have different "projected games played" somewhere.

I factor in the play-in. I also factor in upsets, and moving forward upsets (like if 12 and 13 both win, I factor in 12 should win that next game also -- (but that shouldn't effect pre-tournament)
