Warren Buffett's $1 million offer 

March Madness is one of the most-watched sporting events in the U.S. The 2019 tournament averaged a whopping 10.9 million viewers across different television networks.

This year, billionaire Warren Buffett is offering a million dollars to any Berkshire Hathaway employee who will correctly guess the outcome of every single game, but the odds of scoring a perfect NCAA bracket are pretty scant. Nevertheless, the one with the most accurate prediction will still get a cool $100,000.    

The very first game will start today at 6 p.m. EST.
