Brackets Simply Do Not Bust in the Bracket Challenge Ticket Jam

The defining feature of the Bracket Challenge Ticket Jam is that all fans still have something to play for during tonight's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament championship game between Michigan and Villanova. All fans are playing for $50 in free tickets and 11% of fans are playing for the $114 First Prize.

The odds on favorites to win it all are the current leader, andyrunner88, if Villanova wins, and third place McAdams_Fan if Michigan wins. But fans will also be earning additional points tonight by way of their final score predictions, and those numbers are variable.
