Ohio man has the last perfect NCAA bracket and the best ever recorded

Big Tournament

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Not only does a man from Ohio have the last remaining perfect NCAA tournament bracket, he also has the record for the longest streak of correct picks. 

According to NCAA.com, Gregg Nigl from Columbus, Ohio has correctly picked all 48 games so far of the 2019 NCAA tournament.  

This means of all the tens of millions of brackets submitted and tracked on NCAA.com, ESPN, CBS, Yahoo, Fox, and Sports Illustrated, his was the last remaining perfect one. 

Not only has correctly picked all 48 games, he shattered the previous recorded best of 39 games set in 2017, according to NCAA.com

The odds of Nigl picking all the games correctly at this point? About 1 in 281,474,976,710,656, according to NCAA.com

The Big Tournament Live host Jerod Smalley talked to Nigl on Tuesday while he was vacationing with his family in Vermont. He even asked him for his insight on Powerball picks–check it out in the video above!
