Make $900,000 in 12 days

Here’s a quick guide to how you could have made $300k in 12 days.

Start with $1,000.

Bet on Virginia Commonwealth in the play-in game on March 16 to win. They were a 1.75 to 1 underdog.
They win, you have $2750.

Bet it all on VCU to beat Georgetown, 2.1 to 1 underdog.
They win, you have $8,525

Bet it all on VCU to win vs Purdue, 4 to 1 underdog.
They win, you have $42,625.

Bet it all on VCU to beat Flordia St, 1.7 to 1 underdog.
They win, you have $115,088.

Bet it all on VCU to beat Kansas, 7 to 1 underdog.
They win, you have $920,700.

PS They are 1.25 to 1 underdogs to Butler. If they win that, they’ll probably be 3 to 1 underdogs vs UK or UCONN. Ride em out and turn that 1k into $8.29 million. Go VCU Rams!

PS VCU is a case in point on why picking a perfect bracket is a 400billion to 1 shot.
