Las Vegas, NV – Wanna become a billionaire? Don’t bet on it. With over nine quintillion – that’s 18 zeroes – combinations in the NCAA Tournament bracket, you’d stand a much better chance of wagering $200,000 on Wofford, at 5000 to 1, to win it all. Of course, that comes with significantly more risk than Warren Buffett’s one billion dollar reward for the Perfect Bracket. Safe to say, the professional gambler is likely to stay off this.

For those of us looking for action with a reasonable chance of return, William Hill Race & Sports book has released odds for the overhyped college basketball tournament. Florida offers the least amount of value at 3.5 to 1 to win the National Championship followed closely by Michican State and Louisville at 5 and 6 to one respectively.

From the Mountain West Conference, the oddsmakers feel San Diego State (60/1) has a better chance than New Mexico (75/1).
