March Madness 2019: A beginner’s guide to your NCAA Tournament bracket pool

Denver Post Wednesday, 20 March 2019
March Madness begins this week, and for non-basketball fans building a bracket can be somewhat intimidating. Don't worry, we have you covered. Here are 10 simple tips to help you pick a strong NCAA Tournament bracket for your pool. Don't stress too much over the first and second rounds You are three quadrillion (a three followed by 15 zeros) times more likely to be struck by lightning in your lifetime than you are picking a perfect bracket, so don't sweat the early rounds. According to research done by the NCAA using data from their Bracket Challenge Game, winners of those pools get, on average, just 25 of 32 first round games correct (78 percent). None of those were perfect through the first 48 hours of the tournament.
