For the first time in history, NCAA missed out on its annual March madness last year owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. Though coronavirus hasn’t gone, March Madness is back in 2021.
The spectacular sporting event will see around 68 nail-biting clashes this season.
Basketball tournaments are closely followed by avid fans and followers scattered across the globe. Now, that the NCAA Championship has already begun, a couple of days back, NCAA 2021 printable bracket is also out.
Even you can try to create one for yourself.
Who knows if your predictions come right then you may get lots of recognition and unprecedented fame. Don’t miss out on reading out opening lines and looking into the pre-match analysis of the first 32 games before coming out with your own predictions.
As far as NCAA 2021 is concerned; the stakes are high and in all probability, Gonzaga is likely to reach on top of the table. The team is full of energetic and talented players who can take care of its offense and defense.
No doubt, fans are quite hopeful of Gonzaga’s stellar performance this season.
Illinois is another key team that has the power to outsmart any other team. It has been also playing quite aggressively in the last few years.
Punters will also keep a close watch on Illinois performance. Like Gonzaga, most Basketball aficionados are expecting another vital performance from Illinois as well.
While making your predictions; use your logic and recent match statistics. Your NCAA bracket should be based on players’ performance and team records—don’t make it too personal by making unrealistic expectations from your favorite athletes.
Probability of NCAA Bracket
Until now, nobody knows how to draw a perfect NCAA bracket. Though a lot of Basketball fans have tried their best it’s highly unlikely that anyone could predict the correct outcomes of all the games.
The probability of making correct guesses of 63 matches is essentially impossible. You can only read team performance and make a pre-match analysis of how athletes will perform. But it doesn’t guarantee that your analysis will come true. Even small matters can make a big difference in the game of Basketball.
Most NCAA matches are quite riveting. It’s tough to predict which way the game will swing. Last-minute upsets are common in Basketball clashes. So, it’s close to impossible to imagine that someone from the spectator is making the right predictions of all games.
In 2020, NCAA admitted that it used fans’ data, statistics, brackets, and pre-match analyses for informational purposes.
However, none of the predictions was fully correct. On an estimate, 1 person in 115-billion can draw the right bracket—but it’s as myth as the existence of Unicorn.
Nobody Can Ever Draw a Perfect NCAA Bracket
- It’s as rare as a meteorite hits you.
- Only one out of thousands can represent his team.
- The probability of a shark attack on a beach tantamount to 1 in nine million.
- Getting electrocuted by accidental lightning happens to one person out of 110,000.
- Becoming a billionaire in Canada is rare. Only 1 out of a million people get to fulfil their dream.
The above data makes it clear that anybody making correct guesses of NCAA matches is extremely rare. Out of 68 matches, you may never know which team will eventually hold their nerves till the last match.

Fans are elated with the return of March madness. Every fan is trying to draw their NCAA bracket. Though predicting the outcome of NCAA matches is very difficult but fans are glued to their Television sets, smartphones, and PCs to enjoy March Madness.
Historically, only one person came close to drawing a perfect NCAA bracket—Gregg Nigl. His guesses on NCAA 2019 matches made headlines across newspapers and website reports. He was so much meticulous in his approach that it was believed he would create a world record of predicting the right result in all 68 matches.
But it didn’t become real. One wrong prediction stopped his winning streaks. Newbies and fans can get some inspiration from Gregg while drawing their own NCAA bracket.
Nigl was going strong with his guesses but his prediction about the Tennessee Vs Purdue game went completely wrong. However, Nigl deserved some credit for his astute analytical skills. It’s because of him that in 2019 NCAA March Madness, the probability of making right guesses reached one in 18,000.
Honestly speaking, guessing the result of NCAA matches is impossible. Even other factors can also alter your predictions, including athletes’ injuries, last-minute points earned, team decisions, and big upsets!
