Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Biggest betting moment was winning $68,000 from $1500 bet on Northwestern to win the Big Ten. They didn’t but I took a buyout shortly after halftime.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
Hawaii-San Jose State game. I love the unders. I hit the under at every possible number throughout the game. Of course it was the only game that year that didn’t have a punt.
