Perfect Bracket for 2011 March Madness not so Perfect

Perfect Bracket for 2011 March Madness

While everyone will be dreaming about hitting the perfect bracket during the 2011 March Madness, the odds of this happening are close to zero.

In fact, there are no documented cases of this having ever happened.

The odds of a prefect bracket (64 teams, plus play in game totaling 64 games played) are one in 18,446,744,073,709,551,616.  If every single American (or 300 million people) were to fill out 61.5 million brackets each, only ONE person would be perfect.

This won’t stop people from dreaming and it won’t stop online sportsbooks from offering their $14 million perfect bracket March Madness contests in 2011

Still, there are incentives to take part in some of these contests, big cash incentives.

Sportsbook.com, for example, has a $10,0000 guaranteed prize pool assuming nobody hits the perfect bracket (an assumption that – itself – is almost guaranteed). 

Submit your picks and place $20.00 in wagers during each round of the tournament to be eligible for the cash prizes.  The cash prizes include $5,0000 for having the most number of correct picks, $3,000 for 2nd place and $2,000 for 3rd.
Sportsbook.com is the largest North American online sports betting firm in terms of overall volume.  *see terms and conditions on site

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
