If you thought March Madness was only about college hoops, you were dead wrong. It’s all about the Benjamins. From TV networks to the NCAA itself, everyone is trying to get a piece of the pie this time of year.

Some interesting stats to consider while watching the final four this weekend:

A 30-second spot during the first round of the tournament can go for $100,000. That same ad in the finals goes for over $1 million.

The NCAA makes 96 of it’s annual revenue in March.

$3 billion is bet in office pools across the country, over 50 million Americans participating.

96 percent of Americans will watch some part of the tournament.
