The Idiot Auburn Fan

by A.J. Coltrane

There was an Auburn fan who stood to make $50,000 last night had they won the national championship.

Rather than hedge his bet he chose to ride it out, even though Auburn was about a 10 point (or 3-1) underdog.

He got zero dollars.

What he could have done would have been to place a $16,500 on Florida State at -330.

Had Florida State won he would end up with $21,500.

Had Auburn won he still would have had $33,500.

Hedging his bet still would have left him with his home-team rooting interest. He didn’t want to “jinx it”. What an idiot.
