Tens of millions of NCAA brackets have been filled out and entered in the past six years of the Bracket Challenge Game.

Naturally, only six of those have emerged victorious.

BRACKET TIPS: The 2019 bracket challenge winner is a reminder of the most important bracket lesson

Those six championship brackets averaged 51.8 correct pics out of the total 63 games every year — a picking percentage of about .822. In the same time the average Bracket Challenge Game bracket has managed approximately 42 correct picks, for a pick accuracy of almost 66.7 percent.

The biggest takeaway from this bracket Hall of Fame? Look at where the scarce red marks are: Way off to the sides, in the early rounds.

Only one of these winning brackets didn’t get all four Elite Eight games correct, and every single one of them went three-for-three in the Final Four and championship. If you’re going to take some risks, do it early. These brackets averaged a pick accuracy of .799 over the first 48 games, but that shot up to .900 over the final 15.
