I never tried it myself, but I would not doubt it works. I just don't know how "dramatic" the actual price drop is.
Every time a big sporting event rolls around, Darren Rovell tweets about this. He's an ESPN guy who focuses on sports business. Anyways I would look up his twitter on SB Sunday last year or for the NCAA championship next week.
As the week rolls on, the scalpers do indeed get nervous and are forced to sell tickets for what they can get.
