I’ve gathered bracket probabilities from other websites to compare with my model’s results. Here are the numbers from those models as well as a composite (average of all the models) probability for every team reaching each round.

I was able to find predictions at the following websites:

Only The Best Conferences Produce NCAA Tournament Champs
