Bing has launched their smart answers in the search results for March Madness. You can now go to Bing and search for [march madness] to get the brackets.

Bing will give you three options above the typical search results. Bing defaults to the current bracket results, a way to build your own bracket and, of course, their predictions of winners. Bing also provides the schedule and the teams playing in this year’s March Madness.

Here is a screen shot of the default results view in bracket format, which you can expand by clicking on the down arrow or the results button:

When you click on the Bing Predicts, which Bing has been pretty big into, it gives you all the predictions, updated as time goes on. Here is a large screen shot, which you can click on to enlarge:
