“We definitely have some liability associated with VCU winning the title,” Kornegay told Covers.com in a phone interview from Las Vegas. “I can’t say I’m comfortable.”


So they wouldn't have to pay out 50 large on bets on other teams regardless of the odds? GTFOOH

They have to come out ahead if VCU wins just based on volume bet on other teams.

Great marketing. Even the headline is masterful.

I'm sure there was more than just the one guy with the $10 ticket trying to take advantage of them posting crazy odds.

9999 to 1? Really?
