In the latest installment of dumb things that bettors do, we take you to the MGM Mirage, where sportsbook director Jay Rood recently received an interesting betting ticket mailed in for payment.
According to Rood, a bettor who put a “couple hundred” on LSU to win the BCS National Championship in November mailed in their futures ticket to the payment center with LSU crossed out and Alabama written in. The bettor's explanation: “I changed my mind.”
Alabama, of course, shut out LSU 21-0 to win the BCS National Championship and rendering the bettor's ticket on LSU useless.
“The guy actually paid the postage to send it in,” Rood told Covers.com with a laugh.
