Powerball vs. Perfect March Madness bracket odds
Found this interesting after someone in Pennsylvania took home the $456.7 million Powerball this weekend: You’re more likely to win one of this week’s big lottery big prizes than pick a perfect March Madness bracket. Jeff Bergen, math professor at DePaul University, said in 2012 that’s about 1 in 128 billion. Jonathan Mattingly, math professor at Duke University, put the odds at 1 in 2.4 trillion in 2015.
And you wonder why Warren Buffett has no problem putting up all that money if someone hits a perfect bracket. He’s safe.
Numbers from :
Nevada's 22-point comeback ties Duke for the 2nd-largest in NCAA Tournament history. The Blue Devils came back against the Maryland Terrapins during the 2001 Final Four.
The largest NCAA Tournament comeback is 25 points, when BYU defeated Iona in the 2012 First Four. pic.twitter.com/hcpGUHgn3o
