College basketball’s March Madness is here and personal finance website WalletHub released its annual NCAA Tournament By the Numbers report, examining the billion-dollar business behind the game played by “amateur athletes”.

Did you know the price tag for a pass to all three Final Four games in Indianapolis will run you at least $2 thousand? Or that Las Vegas casinos will rake in about $100 million during this year’s tournament?

Here are a few more amazing numbers:

$10.8 billion – Amount CBS / Turner paid for television broadcasting rights from 2011 – 24.

2X – Easier to win back to back Mega Millions lotteries than fill out a perfect bracket.

19% – Increase in pizza orders by fans after losses versus wins.
