Job Description

Not sure what category to place this job under, but our team needs to find the odds of someone correctly selecting the correct outcome of 14 matches (meaning they pick one winner from each matchup and correctly pick all 14 winners correctly).

A match consists of two teams: Team A vs. Team B

Ex: Lakers vs. Heat

With only ONE match, the chances of winning are 1 in 2 (50%)

If there were 2 Matches (Team A vs. Team B, and Team C vs. Team D), then the chances of selecting BOTH winning teams correctly is 1 in 4 (25% chance).

We need to find out what the odds are for correctly picking the winner of 14 Matches.

Please provide your answer and the math used to get the answer.
