What are the odds of a perfect bracket? 

According to NCAA.com, if you were to simply guess or flip a coin for each matchup, the odds of a perfect NCAA bracket are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808. 

However, NCAA.com also notes that the odds are more like 1 in 120.2 billion, if the person making the bracket takes into account info about which teams are better and tournament history. 

It’s believed that the closest anyone has gotten to a perfect bracket occurred just five years ago.

During the 2019 tournament, an Ohio man correctly guessed all the games going into the Sweet 16, according to NCAA.com. But his streak of 49 correct picks was ended when Purdue beat Tennessee 99-94 in overtime of the second game in the Sweet 16.

Last year, it took just 25 games for there to be no more perfect brackets – after No. 16 FDU stunned No. 1 Purdue. 

In 2022 and 2021, it took just 28 games for there to be no more perfect brackets.
