I will keep standings based on how many corrects picks each expert makes.  For each correct pick, the expert will receive 1 standings point.  If the expert correctly guesses the winner and the number of games the series will last, they will get 2 points.  The TSN experts didn’t bother to say how many games each series would take so they can’t get any bonus points.  Sucks to be TSN!
