Some Guy Won $120,000 When Houston Lost to Texas State

Last season Houston went 13-1 and finished #14 in the nation in the USA Today poll. (AP #18) Last year Texas State went 6-6. In 2010, Houston beat Texas State, 68-28. It makes sense that Houston would be a big favorite when the two schools met last weekend. It does not make sense that someone would bet two grand on Texas State winning outright. Then again, 60-1 odds will do that to you.

The William Hill Race & Sports Book in Las Vegas says a man placed a $2,000 bet on Texas State to beat Houston outright at 60-1 odds, earning him a payout of $120,000. Texas State, which was playing its first game as a member of the Football Bowl Subdivision, was a 34-point underdog. It was just the seventh 30-point underdog to win a game outright since 1980 according to RJ Bell, the founder of the sports betting website Pregame.com.

I’ll go back to the Mayweather post from earlier today. I’d love to see some of the idiotic bets this guy has thrown away money on. Three grand on Savannah State to win? Sure!
