Help me figure out which games I should watch, based on how exciting each game is expected to be (or is in real time)!

Resolves YES if the game is decided by 3 points or less, i.e. the final score has a margin of victory of 3 or less, meaning the game likely came down to the ~final possession with the winner beating the loser by 3 points or less.

Answers are listed in order that they are played for optimal viewing experience (sort "Old" to see in chronological order).

@traders thanks for playing! I had a ton of fun running all these March Madness markets. A bit disappointing we only had 7 games in the entire tourney within 3 points, and none after the Sweet 16 but thereโ€™s always next year! Follow along with the markets for next yearโ€™s tournament on the March Madness 2025 dashboard.

@dglid Thanks for hosting!
