    When I looked at that I thought no way the odds were right. Prop bets don't get those kinds of odds. The article says it was all a joke and the real odds were 40 to 1.

    Cajun Sensation I'm kind of a big deal

    Yeah, the odds were 40-1.

    I knew immediately that couldn't be right. 1million to 1 bets don't exist. There's no advantage for casino. Anyway, the 40-1 paid but it was for a safety as first score of the game. Not the first play. First play safety odds would probably be closer to 200-1

    Guess I should have read the article. BTW, Cuban is a jackass and not just because of this.

    My ex father in law told me once "money goes where money is" and told me about a horse that Perry Segura had bought for oh I don't know, like 5 or 6 grand. He ran him at Evangiline downs and the horse came in dead last. He was apparently about to send it off to the dog food plant when an old Cajun trainer told him to run that horse on grass. He took the advice, ran him on the turf and the horse smoked the field. Think he sold the horse for like 50k.
