The Odds Of Picking The Perfect NCAA March Madness Bracket
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Are you feeling lucky?
Today is special. It's not only St. Patrick's Day, but it's also the beginning of first round games in the NCAA tournament.
Bracket contests lock in just after 11am. Millions of people who had unrealistic hopes of picking a perfect bracket have their dream killed within a few hours.
You could see a leprechaun, find a 4 leaf clover, rub a rabbit's foot, take Scrooge McDuck's "lucky dime", eat black eyed peas and try a hundred other things that promise to bring you good luck. Guess what? It won't help you accomplish the impossible.
What are the odds of picking the perfect NCAA bracket?
According to mentalfloss.com, 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808. A quicker way to say it is 1 in 9.2 quintillion.
In comparison, odds to win the Powerball Lottery are much better at 1 in 292,201,338.
I'd wish you good luck, but I don't think it'll help.
