USA Today - In terms of point spreads, Texas State’s 30-13 victory over Houston last weekend was one of the biggest upsets in the last 32 years of college football. The Bobcats were 34.5-point underdogs in their first Division I game and won by 17. Pregame.com said it was the first time such a big underdog had won a game by double digits. It was just the seventh occasion since 1980 in which a team favored by so many points lost a game. None of this came as a surprise to one bettor in Las Vegas. According to William Hill, a customer at Binion’s wagered $2,000 on Texas State to win the game outright. He got 60-to-1 odds on the bet and netted $120,000 when the Bobcats pulled the upset.
Pretty sure if you look up “Degenerate” in the dictionary down at your local Gambler’s Anonymous meeting spot there’s a picture of this fuckin maniac dropping $2K on Texas State moneyline in a season opener against Houston. Like I’m not even sure if I should be happy for this guy. More just concerned for his overall well being. I mean yeah he won. Nice chunk of change. But I’m like 99.7% sure he just immediately put $120K on literally the next game on the board then put a bullet in his brain when he lost. Pretty much the only way this can all play out. Degenerates gonna degenerate.
