TIE-BREAKER GAME STEPS
1) Predicting both the winning and losing team
2) Predicting just the winner 
3) Predicting both teams in the game but not the right winner
4) Predicting only the losing team
5) Predicting the score 
     example: (combine total points and point differential)
     a) Predicted score of game: 82-73--155  (point differential = 9)
     b) Actual score of game: 79-65--144  (point differential = 14)
     c) Point differential difference is 5 (9 to 14)
     d) Total points are off by 11 (155 - 144 = 11)
     e) Add point differential (5) + total points (11) = 16
     f) Lowest number wins tie-breaker
6) If still tied, split winnings
