I am absolutely on it. That sounds awesome, thank you!I posted this in another thread. It probably fits better here.
Read the book "Then One Day" by Chris Andrews, Forty years of bookmaking in Nevada.
Presently he runs the book at South Point in Vegas.
The stories in there are fantastic.
While I have you all on the line…here’s my galaxy-brained longshot CFB futures play. This team is ranked in the pre-season top 25. They are top 15 in various power rankings. They are coming off a 10-3 season in which they went undefeated against PAC 12 opponents. They are not a P5 team, but will be playing teams from three P5 conferences, and Notre Dame. They have the most returning production in all of FBS football. Their O/U for RSW is 8.5. Normally, that resume would put you in the +2000 to +7500 range. But the BYU Cougars are +50000 to win the national championship. Do I really think they can do it? God no. Hell no. But with their schedule, they will be this year’s Cincy if they run the table. If they’re 11-1 with their lone loss at Oregon or in Vegas vs. Notre Dame, they will be in the mix for a playoff birth, because the Big 12 and PAC 12 champions could very well have two losses.
.25 units at 500:1 on BYU. If they get there, we can hedge (which will admittedly be tricky) and lock in a pretty sweet profit. If their brutal schedule proves to be too much, then we lose a little money.
