That doesn’t mean the fun is over just yet. Twenty people will win $100,000 to put toward buying, refinancing or remodeling a home. The Quicken Loans Zing Blog will keep you updated!

It’s time to register for the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge with Yahoo! Sports for a chance to win a billion dollars.
Yup, the time has come. To help celebrate what is perhaps the biggest contest in U.S. history, we’ve done what we’re supposed to do – create an infographic.
So here it is. An infographic with some great tips to help pick a perfect bracket in the 2014 men’s college basketball tournament. Trust us. These are tips that will help you in your quest for perfection – and a billion dollars!
- 23 out of 24 national champions have been seeded #3 or higher.
- In the last 14 years, teams seeded #14 or higher have only won 7 times total.
- At least one #12 seed has beaten a #5 seed 22 out of the last 24 years. Weird.
- Ken Pomeroy has a formula that I don’t understand but it looks cool and supposedly helps you pick a winner.
Good luck picking a perfect bracket. If this infographic helps you win the big prize, remember me, please. And as always, I’ll end this with my regular plea for some feedback. What do you think? Love the infographic? Hate it? Don’t care? Tell me!
