What better way to have some fun among fellow Planet-9 members than by picking your own NCAA bracket and entering to win our annual basketball pool!

Cost? Like last year there is no cost to play, and up for grabs is some special Planet 9 and Cayman Club merchandise for those who do well with their picks! (More to be determined as we move forward as was the case last year - complete prize listing once I have everything from our sponsors)

If you know someone who would like to play but isn't currently a Planet-9.com member simply have them sign up and they are eligible to win (and have some fun!). The rules are pretty simple and are listed on the site and the online tool makes it very easy to fill out your bracket sheet. Good Luck!

Well now that the brackets have been announced, are people making their selections??? I heard that the odds for Kentucky winning in Las Vegas were 11/10, meaning you have to bet $11 to win $10, why would anyone do that??
same reason ppl bet hundreds to win $100 when ppl like pacquaio or mayweather fights? there are favs and underdogs for a reason.

Current Vegas Odds for Kentucky to win it all is now at 10/13. You have it switched, it may have opened at 10/11 but it's now 10/13. So you have to bet $13 to win $10!
Not a very good value bet.

No what I'm saying is why would anyone bet $11 to win $10, that doesn't make sense to me...
Why would anyone bet on Secretariat to win the 1973 Belmont stakes when the odds were 1:10? A bettor would pay $2 to win 20 cents (or to get back $2.20 on their $2 bet). Odds on favorite,

I'm sorry i thought if you bet $11 you'd win $10 back total, not $21 total meaning you actually won $10 above where you started. So yeah I can see betting $11 to win a total of $21 and be up by $10 overall, in fact with Kentucky this year that almost sounds like a sure thing... let's see bet $110,000 and win $100k, or a free GT4. :)

No sorry, you still have it backwards. I said Secretariat's odds were 1:10. A better would bet $2 and get back winnings of 20 cents.


If the odds are 10:11, then if you bet $10, your winnings are 10/11= $9.09. So you bet $10 and get back your original $10 plus $9.09. You would not be up $10 overall, only $9.09 yet your risk was $10.

If the odds are now 10:13, then if you bet $10, your winnings are 10/13= $7.69. So you bet $10 and get back your original $10 plus $7.69
