COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio man made history with a March Madness brace that was perfect in 48 NCAA.com Bracket Challenge games, according to the NCAA.
Gregg Nigl from Columbus Dispatch said I almost did not fill his brace last week and said he was ill at home just hours before the deadline. He felt bad, however, if he did not want to enter a bracket in his friend's tournament group. Instead, he has correctly predicted every game during the first two rounds of the NCAA 2019 tournament, one of which can be found in all of the major online games of the brackets, including Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, Fox, Sports Illustrated and their own competition NCAA. It is the longest series of correct bracket picks, breaking the record of 39 games in 201
The NCAA says the odds for a perfect bracket are 1 to 9.2 quintillion – so the bets take the bottom.
40-year-old Nigl said he researched his picks and did his homework after the tournament field was revealed, including a few TV shows.
In addition to its historical parenthesis, two more three Nigl staples come first In their groups, the Dispatch said.
Nigl has closely watched the games and recently traveled with his wife at a brewery in Erie, Pennsylvania, to watch Michigan beat Florida in the last 32 rounds. Nigl, who grew up in Michigan, is a lifelong Wolverines fan.
In his perfect bracket, Nigl has 1st place Gonzaga, who defeated 2nd place Kentucky for the national title. Duke and Virginia complete his Final Four.
Although Nigl wants to pick the remaining games, he does not count on his braces to stay perfect.
"The chances of a perfect brace to see this point, I'm not very confident that it will stay that way," Nigl said. "But everything can happen."
