Underdog Best Ball Mania Bible: Anatomy of a Final-Round Roster

Underdog Fantasy has officially launched Best Ball Mania 3, a tournament with a $10 million prize pool and $2 million to first place. With two years of tournament data, the sample size for winning trends is relatively small which is why previous Best Ball Mania studies have focused on successful strategies on the largest scale possible, first-round advance rates.

Maximizing your chances to get out of the first round is essential to being successful in best ball tournaments, but digging deeper can increase the likelihood of taking down the whole thing. This analysis will dissect all rosters that made it to the final round of Best Ball Mania 1 and 2 in hopes of teasing out lineup-building strategies from the truly top-tier rosters.
