2nd Year SecondTicket Fan Wins $114 in Free Tickets in the 2018 Bracket Challenge Ticket Jam

Villanova and SecondTicket fan andyrunner88 were the big winners on Monday night as the Wildcats defeated the University of Michigan 79-62 to win the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

The 2018 champion of the Bracket Challenge Ticket Jam is andyrunner88, of Ohio. Going into last night's game and depending on his score predictions, a Villanova victory would have given him at least 208.5 points. He posted 12 score prediction points for a total of 220.5. The only three fans who could have beaten that score by correctly predicting both teams' scores were seanbeeeee, RRookstool and BADDGUY, but none of them posted more than seven points.
