​March Madness is always a crazy time of the year, but if you thought the action on the court was mad, wait until you see the action in gambling. 

We all know Americans love throwing a few bucks into their office bracket pool, but the total amount we are wagering is staggering. 

Like in the billions staggering. 


According to a survey done by the American Gaming Association, there will be $4.6 billion wagered on brackets alone in the United States. It's a stunning amount, and it's still only 55 percent of what will be wagered in total. 

Throw in the amount people will be betting with friends or bookies (both legally and illegally) and you have a total of $8.5 billion.
