Considering that the odds of a perfect bracket are 1 in 9.2 quintillion, it’s safe to say you’re not going to get all your picks right.
But, thanks to computers and math and stuff, you can improve your chances. At least a little bit.
One way is to use the “Hack the Bracket” artificial intelligence engine put together online by Adobe.
The website lets you plug in any two teams in the tournament and get the probability of each outcome.
Over the last five years, this thing has been correct about 82 percent of the time. So while there’s no way for any computer program to perfectly predict winners, at least this tool gives you a better shot at winning than just going with your gut feeling.
