    So I remember trying this last year by myself, but I didn't get to far. If you aren't familiar with sports and/or College Basketball there's something called "march maddess". 64 teams get selected and there's one winner. A bunch of places offer free backets. As big as ESPN and CBS sport offering 100,000$ if you pick the winning. Then local radio stations and companies might offer a 50$ gift card.

    With that said. What I'm looking for is:
    - List of websites that have March Madness brackets that can be filled out for free
    - Preferably in an excel sheet or some easy to read format

    In the future:
    I'll be looking for somebody to fill out the forms

    There's really got to be 10000+ websites that have these. The problem is that most people won't be advertising that they have these until early March. Then you only have a few days to fill out the brackets!

    Let me know if anybody will be able to help.

    Price unknown - Please name your price and PM me.

    Thanks!

    PS - Just found this site:

    hxxp://DUB DUB DUB.isportslinks.com/march%20madness.shtml

    Come closer to March I'm sure more will open. I'm honestly looking for 1000+ brackets.

    Each game can have 1 of 2 possible outcomes. with 64 games, this gives 2^64 or 18 quintillion possibilities... 18,446,744,073,709,551,616.

    This is about 18 million trillions.

    good luck filling out all those brackets!!!

    Well, I don't want to fill out that many brackets, BUT i do want to fill out alot (or outsource it), but first I need the list.

    BTW - I think it's closer to 9 quintillion.

    Edit: I'm correct. There's only 63 games (32+16+8+4+2+1) = 9.2 trillion:1

    Let's not cut out the always important play-in game. (Just kidding, but some people do use it for tie-breakers instead of projecting the championship total points or final score.)

    If anyone has any questions about this stuff I'd be happy to help. Not so good with the technical side of it but I can tell you all you need to know about MM.

    Who's gonna win? And you can't say Kentucky or Syracuse.

    Kstate.

    Lol.

    I have for the past two years wanted to try and make some coin off MM but never did. Back in '06 I cam SOOOOOO close to winning a HUGE pot. It was an upset year though and I think I got F-ed by George Mason or something.

    I might be interested in this, if I knew it was worth my time monetarily.

    I might even be interested in seeing what ways we can come up with to make some cash.

    The only way I see doing it is:
    1. Come up with the most valid names and address you can that understand you are using it for this.
    2. "Gamble" some games that you "know" are going to win (ex. all the #1 seeds will beat the #16's)
    3. Fill out as many brackets as you can and make them all different.

    And MAYBE, just MAYBE you have somebody that hits a perfect bracket and the host pays out big.

    ---

    There's a few other places online that claim if you hit 20-25 sports picks in a row you get 100k or so. I have a few ideas that this can be done legitamently, but we need some program skill and about 100 people that understand what is going on.
