With the Florida Gator’s win over the Ohio State Buckeyes last Monday, I managed to claim a share of the third place prize of my office pool.
That amounted to $15 – a 3-fold return of my original investment of $5. Not bad.
In years past I’ve had varying luck with March Madness pools. My worst performance was in college, when I put in $30 and got exactly nothing in return. My best performance was in grad school, where a measly $4 bet resulted in an $80 windfall (hey, it IS a windfall when you’re a poor grad student).
How did you do this year in your March Madness pools? How have you done in years past?
