Long odds for sure. But why not fill one out - or several thousand if it's free.

Odds of winning powerball jackpot is 175,223,510 to 1. That means you're 52.6 billion times more likely to hit the jackpot than to fill out a perfect bracket.

If you can figure out a way to get through the early rounds to the sweet sixteen then there's only 32,768 combinations left.

N/M he did his math wrong.

147,500,000,000,000,000,000 quintillion ways to fill out a bracket.

I feel like I could create a ridiculous amount of brackets and have a decent shot

Got to love that 40% tax bracket.

Although, you could probably invest the lump sum $500 million, and manage a smaller tax penalty through capital gains.
