Bettor wagers $50 on Alabama over Duke — only to win … 30 cents?

Jesse Reed

Someone put down a $50 wager on Alabama to beat Duke Saturday at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, and the return on that investment is hilarious.

Alabama’s moneyline to win at home against the Blue Devils is an absurd -16000, meaning this bettor will only bring home 30 cents if the Crimson Tide do, in fact, win.

Maybe this person really, really needed that extra 30 cents. Otherwise, why even bother? That’s just a mind-boggling use of one’s funds.
