Do you know what the probability of having a perfect March Madness bracket is??
Did you know Warren Buffet offered a $1 billion prize for a perfect bracket!
You are more likely to win the lottery than you are to get a perfect NCAA bracket…the odds are 1 in 9.2 quintillion [not even sure how much quintillion is] that anyone will ever predict a perfect NCAA bracket. Which is exactly why it has NEVER been done.
Being Struck by Lightning: 1 in 500,000
Winning a Medal in the Olympics: 1 in 622,000
Being Struck by Lightning twice: 1 in 9 million
Being Bitten by a Shark: 1 in 3.7 million
Being in a Plane Crash: 1 in 11 million
Winning the Powerball: 1 in 292 million
Having Octuplets: 1 in 20 trillion
Being hit by a Falling Satellite: 1 in 21 trillion
Winning Powerball & Mega Millions: 1 in 45 quadrillion
Will, it ever happen…unlikely but in 2019 one person had a perfect bracket through the Sweet 16 before it was busted. In 2018 the very first game of the tournament caused everyone’s bracket to be busted for the first time in history a 16 seed beat a 1 seed when Virginia lost to UMBC.
The fact of the matter is March Madness is absolute chaos, and the chances of predicting 67 games correctly are extremely difficult. Considering the fact that injuries happen as well is a whole other beast in predicting as you never know how that will hurt a team.
But we will keep trying regardless!!!
