I've been meaning to get over to Vegas to make my annual bet on the Hawks winning the BCS Championship. Checked about three months ago, odds were 25 to 1 at most sports book.
Couldn't get away from LA so asked a friend who is there right now if he'd put a C-note down for me. Just got off the phone with him. He got the bet down.
At 8 to 1!
Eight to One! I realize that has nothing to do with which team Vegas thinks will win or lose but it does indicate a whole lot of people, including professional gamblers, are, well... you know.
8 TO 1!!!
