BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistMarch 17, 2014

Professor Sheldon Jacobson, the true numbers guru from the University of Illinois, uses 29 years of statistical bracket data to break down, analyze and predict the outcome of March Madness.

For more of Professor Jacobson's work and the real "Bracketology" visit bracketodds.cs.illinois.edu.

Find out what the professor and his data says, and be sure to watch this video before picking your "sure wins."
