The true odds might be in the millions, but the odds really are not that high.
FIrst of all, no 16 seed in winning, so that takes out a few hundred thousand possibilities right there. And if you take all 15 seeds to lose, then you take out quite a bit more.
The true odds would to win 63 games. But if you take out the above 8 games, the odds go down alot. Also every 14 seed this year will most likely lose. So that is 4 more. down to picking 51 winners.
Lastly, i would at least 3 of the #1 seeds to advance to sweet 16, maybe not Xavier. So now down to 48 games. of course those 49 games are not exactly 50/50 because of big favorites.
With so many millions of brackets done at ESPN (I dd 2 brackets myself) this might be the year
what? the true odds are much higher than in the millions.
