Edit : its 2^14 different accounts
Pretty simple actually. There 14 games total and 2 outcomes for each one. So 2^14

seems like way more than 512, did you factor in the lower bracket also?

So if you number the teams from 1 through 8, then for each match, you can either choose the lower number team to win or the higher number team to win, so there are two choices you can make per match. Since there are 14 matches, you would need 2^14=16384 pickems to account for each bracket once.

14 matches, 2 possible outcomes in each of them, so 2 ^ 14 = 16384

idk if im thinking of this wrong, but isn't this the correct answer?:
https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/2479349/bracket-of-8-tournament
i know that this is for a single elim bracket, i couldn't find anything for a double elim bracket

and if it's wrong can someone explain why

I understand your confusion. Scroll a bit lower and read the comment by the guy named Kaligule he's explained it somewhat decently.
Basically the op has not considered a fixed starting match up and we're only concerned with the outcomes of the individual matches.

see i thought that at first but then someone corrects him and he proceeds to say "I knew I shouldn't answer sports questions." which made me think he was conceding on being incorrect

Even I didn't understand what those 2 msgs meant but he's correct.
