TIE-BREAKER  STEPS
1) Predicting both the winning and losing team
2) Predicting just the winner 
3) Predicting both teams in game but not winner
4) Predicting only the losing team
5) Predicting the score 
example: (combine total points and point differential)
a) Predicted score: 82-73--155  (point differential = 9)
b) Actual score: 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
