2018 March Madness Bracket Contests for Canadians

Selection Sunday is in the books and we can start filling out as many NCAA brackets as we can get our hands on.  I personally love filling out brackets and I always search around the web each year to join as many brackets as possible to give myself a shot at winning some decent prizes.  The problem I’ve run into is that a good chunk of the March Madness contests I come across are only available to Americans.  This includes some of the biggest bracket contests such as ESPN, Yahoo, Bleacher Report and more.

To save you the time finding all of these bracket contests that only accept Americans I’ve put together the below list of NCAA bracket contests that allow Canadians to join and win the prizes.  The majority of contests I’ve listed below are free to enter, but I’ve also included a couple of value added bracket contests at the bottom of the page.

***Special Offer for Canadians***

Before I get into the bracket contests I wanted to draw your attention to a special offer I’ve been able to secure for March Madness.  All of our new sign ups to SportsInteraction.com will receive a free $20 bet on any March Madness + a 100% matching bonus up to $200 on your first deposit.  Click here for all the details.

The Sports Betting CanadianIf you know of any Canadian friendly bracket contests that I haven’t listed below drop me a line through the Contact page and I’ll add it to the list.

  1. Hey Niko – I’m just like you. Love scouring the web for free contests that I can join this time of the year.

    Thanks for hosting your own contest as well as putting this list together.

    As it write this, it says there are 2 Responses / Comments to this post, but I don’t see anything.

  2. Hey Danny, hopefully one of us can take down one of the above contests this year!

    As for the ‘Responses’ when I link to this page from other pages on the site the “pingback” also counts as a response, but it doesn’t show up in the comment section.

    1. Yes – here are a four more that I’ve come across. But they aren’t all the conventional bracket-style contests that we’re used to.

      Two of them are at SBR Forum and two of them are at Covers.com

      1) This first one at SBR Forum requires you to have an SBR Pro Membership. Details here: https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/sbr-pro/

      This one is a traditional bracket-style contest.
      Prize Pool is $5000
      https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/players-talk/3456858-5-000-ncaa-bracket-contest-join-now.html

      2) The other one at SBR Forum appears to only require making a regular account (without the Pro Membership)
      This one is picking winners against the spread rather than filling out a bracket.

      Prize Pool is also $5000
      https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/players-talk/3459352-outkick-madness-5k-cash-contest.html

      3) Also a pick winners against the spread style contest, this one at Covers let’s you choose from games for the remainder of the College basketball post-season.
      Prize Pool is up to $3500 in cash and prizes.
      https://contests.covers.com/KingOfCovers/Rules/02db3401-70ae-48b2-b965-a817005b6bd3

      4) Lastly, this one is more simplified as you only need to pick the straight-up winners of each match-up during the March Madness tourney. It is not bracket-style. So more matchups will be added to choose from as teams advance to the next rounds.
      Prize Pool is $10,000
      https://contests.covers.com/OfficePools/67eb1111-dcbf-4aeb-99c7-a89a00b39db3

      SBR Forum and Covers are relatively popular websites so expect a lot of entrants and competition. Good luck to all who decide to join!
