See Exhibit A Above.
This loyal Auburn fan bought a $100 bet on his Tigers at 500 to 1 odds. He will not hedge his bet. Meaning, he will either win $50,000 tonight or nothing at all. Auburn was a -600 favorite. This is the line in which he could consider hedging his bet. For example, if he wagered $6,000 on Auburn, he would at least win $1,000 if his Auburn Tigers lost the game. One problem is finding $6,000 lying around. However, a larger problem for Mark, the Auburn fan, is that his team loyalty would not allow him to bet on the other team. Follow
@markjskiba on Twitter for his dramatic one-liners during tonight’s BCS Championship game, with Auburn up 21-10 at halftime. Good luck @markjskiba !
P.S. – I understand your nerves…
