Classes on Winning the Billion Dollar Bracket are Gaining Popularity

Posted: Updated:

So, about that billion dollars. We all want it, but Warren Buffett looks at his offer, to pay a billion to anyone who fills out a perfect NCAA bracket, as nothing more than a matter of having the numbers in his favor.

And mathematicians say he's right. But hey, that's still not stopping people from building a new industry to teach bracket-fillers how to make the impossible seem possible.

Nationally, close to half a dozen professors are offering special classes to teach people the ins and outs of the numbers that will work against them. And it has helped people get close in the past, but with more than 9.2 quintillion combinations in the bracket, you will have a better chance buying one Mega Millions ticket and One Power Ball ticket and winning them both within the same week.
