Filling out your bracket: Research or go with your gut?

Updated:

College basketball fans can rejoice - March Madness is in full swing.  Sixty-eight NCAA basketball teams had their sights set on a college basketball championship.

Fans of the game have all sorts of strategies for filling out brackets before the tournament.

We talked with a woman in Joplin who calls herself an Intuitive Consultant and makes predictions based on feelings.

She says while the statistics matter while filling out your bracket you might be better off going with your gut instinct.

"A lot of people have gut feelings, trying to figure out what they're doing, where they're going with it," says Dee Collier.  "With gut feelings, if you listen they'll tell you if something is heavy or if something's light, you'll feel that.  If it's light, it's true.  So with your bracket, if you're picking your winners or what was going to go to the next game, I would suggest you look at the names and ask yourself if this is a winner."

Collier says she may not know sports, but she does know what she feels is right.

"Everybody has intuitions, it's just something we have, and we ignore it because sometimes it doesn't tell us what we want to hear," says Collier.  "But if we listen to it, it will tell us what we need to be doing."

As for the winner in her bracket, Collier says "I don't think I know yet, give it a little while. We'll see."
