If you had a tough start to the NCAA Tournament, just know that there's at least one success story out there to get you motivated for the Sweet 16 and beyond.

For those of you who failed to take part in the FanDuel Props Pick 'Em contest, you might be missing out on some big money moving forward if you don't hop on board.

During the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament, one fan submitted two free entries, picking eight games against the spread, two separate times, and walked away with more than $1,000 in winnings.

That's not a bad way to start your March Madness.

The lucky contestant, who beat the spread not once, but twice, shows you might as well risk it to get the biscuit, especially if the contest is free.

So, even if your bracket is busted and you didn't hit your bets in the first two rounds, there's still a chance to win a share of the Daily $10,000 jackpot on FanDuel Sportsbook.
