By this time many of us already have one, if not more than one, NCAA bracket filled out.
Its also that time of year again when many of us are vying for the big bucks in those office pools.
Good Question: Is there a science to filling out your NCAA bracket?
The brackets are set and now its time to fill out your bracket.
But is there a science to picking the winners?
"Yeah there is a science to it, but everyone has their own opinion," says Arnold Stromberg, a UK Statistics professor.
Science to Stromberg is probability.
He says a lot can go into how a person chooses their teams.
"They spend a lot of time studying different aspects of how team's do in pressure situations and how they do in other situations and they can base their decisions on that." said Stromberg.
As for myself, I don't claim to be an expert or a number cruncher, so Stromberg says I fall into the subjective probability category when I fill out my bracket.
Everyone looks at a particular game and decides for themselves who they think is going to win that game." said Stromberg.
As for how UK will do in the brackets around here, science says...
"In Lexington the subjective probabilities are quite high that UK will do very well, it might be quite different in Louisville." said Stromberg.
According to CBS Sports, they say to fill in your number one seeds to win in the first round, because in the 25 years since the tournament expanded to 65 teams, no number one seed has ever lost to a 16.
