The New York Post: The odds that your March Madness bracket is perfect are 1 in 9.2 quintillion

First, the good news: You chances are as good as anyone else’s when it comes to picking the perfect NCAA bracket.

Now, the bad news: Those odds are astonishingly, amazingly, ridiculously low — 1 in 9.2 quintillion.

How much is a quintillion? It’s one billion billions.

Warren Buffett, he of the $1 million-per-year March Madness bracket challenge, is worth approximately $84.9 billion. Multiply that total by 108,638,068.75 and you’ll have 9.2 quintillion.

That number treats all 63 games in the 2019 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship bracket with 50/50 odds.

Your odds of being hit by lightning twice are significantly better at 1 in 9 million.
