Full Answer

A DePaul University math professor calculated the odds of filling out a perfect bracket at one in 9.2 quintillion, though he stated that someone with significant knowledge of college basketball could improve their odds to one in 128 billion. Prior to the 2014 event, Warren Buffet made a public offering of $1 billion to anyone correctly picking all 63 games of the tournament. None of the millions of entrants even had a perfect bracket by the end of the event's second full day.
