books gave themselves insurance?? lol
are you high? dumb? or just slow?
do you understand that the entire world was on Illinois in this game?
Do you understand that books desperately needed gonzaga to cover 11.5?
if they wanted insurance, to try to even out the action....the line would have moved down from 11.5 instead of going up to 12. The oddsmakers took a gamble with this game, and they lost. They failed miserably.
because this line was soo off/inflated do you understand what this did to the money line? Do you know how many people looked the ML of illinois and saw +500 and said "wow that is insane value on the 12th best team in the country"
not only did illinois cover the 1st half, the 2nd half, and the entire game.....but they also covered the ML as well.
Books got hammered son, please stop smoking drugs.
