(RNN) - Filling out the perfect NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament bracket is not impossible, but the odds aren’t in your favor.

What are the odd? According to WalletHub, you have about a 1/92,000,000,000,000,000,000 chance of perfection. That’s one in 92 quintillion, for those of you who don’t want to count all the zeros.

Slim odds, but I’m telling you there’s a chance. Even so, you’re more likely to beat some of life’s most difficult odds than to fill out a perfect bracket.
