Default 40/1 odds

I just checked an online betting site and they are offering a bet for South Carolina to win next year's national championship at 40 to 1 odds. I've never gambled before, but I may have to start with $250 on the Gamecocks this year to win 10k.

Wonder if you could do a parlay with the Cocks winning the National Championship in Baseball and Football and what the odds would be on a bet like that?

Add in Men's basketball, and it would approach Powerball odds.

250 seems like a good bet. You'd be pissed if we came up a few runs short though.

Some Auburn fans came within 13 seconds of winning 100k last season. Bet $100 on Auburn winning the BCSNCG at 1000 to 1 odds.

Actually, I would think it's very reasonable that odds of winning the powerball are better.

Saw that guy was thinking about hedging, but decided not too. Would have laughed my ass off if he hedged and ended up losing both bets.

The Barners got VERY lucky last year just wondering why you are always on this site? Are you a fan of ours also or just have no life?

I find it hard to believe Auburn was 1,000 to 1 with their recruiting class. People always make up that kind of crap after the fact.

I thought The Cockpit was a place for Gamecock fans to discuss Gamecock football.

Uh, the head of the betting office said that the bets were real. Or did you just want to skip over that?

Ah, I'm with you except for hedging with a bet against the spread. Seems like he would take the moneyline for FSU (size determined based in the odds) and guarantee a win.
