March Madness Bracket Contest Web Site Offers Million Dollar Prize

With the first-round matchups having been announced on Selection Sunday, players and fans alike are gearing up for the most exciting tournament in sports: March Madness. As the 65 NCAA College Basketball teams are practicing their plays and attempting to get inside the heads of opponents, fans everywhere are pouring over stats and preparing to fill out their March Madness brackets. Office-pool participants are after the glory, but tournament fans know that big-money bracket contests are where the real excitement is. For those looking for a little more action this year, has just launched the mother of all March Madness brackets: a $1,000,000 March Madness Bracket Contest - That's right, one million dollars, and it's free to enter! How does it work? Contestants simply predict the outcome of the tournament, one round at a time, until the bracket is full and the champion is predicted. Those who aren't confident in their NCAA Basketball instinct (or just need to brush up on the teams) are advised to take a look at BetUS Sportsbook's odds for each of the games - oddsmakers are smart and more times than not they're correct.
