March Madness: Concerns for Your Productivity and Your Wallet


If you’ve been taking part in March Madness this month, it may be taking a toll on your productivity and your wallet. 

College basketball fans will be watching games until the championship on April 8, and it’s having a big impact on workplace productivity. 

Wallethub estimates employers face $4 billion in corporate losses due to underproductive workers during March Madness. 

This doesn’t just stop there, it also may impact fans’ wallets too. 

The average bet on an NCAA Tournament is $20 to $50, according to Wallethub. 

There is also an increase of more than 20 percent in beer sales and chicken wing orders during the tournament.
