I got the number from the same source I get all my news, the New York Daily News, of course! Wink (compliments of Google).

And given your calculations, Eye, I like my chances better than yours!

How or where did you get that odds number? I found the math around how many possible combinations of winners there are and it is 9,223,372,036,854,780,000. Over 9 Quintillion. 2*2*2*2*2.... 63 times. So barring all the 1 seeds never lose to 16 seeds and such you have a 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,780,000 chance of filling out the correct bracket.

The odds of picking the winner in every game in the 64-team NCAA Tournament is 1 in 4,294,967,296, so Quicken is sweetening the pot even more and offering $100,000 each to the 20 most accurate "imperfect" brackets submitted to use toward buying, refinancing or remodeling a home.

"So you're telling me there's a chance. Yeah!" Wink

Nah, I'd probably just waste it on food, mortgage, and utility bills.

Oh, and I'd go on vacation and buy an exquisite M1 rifle!
