I like those odds 

Via ESPN, we learn that "noted oddsmaker" Danny Sheridan has pegged Oral Roberts University as a 5 sextillion-to-1 dog to win the NCAA tournament. That's 5x10^21 to 1.

Good thing Danny Sheridan doesn't actually operate his own sports book. If he did, I would feel honor-bound to lay a buck on Oral Roberts and find out some way to pay off enough players and officials to give them the championship and have them shut up. I'm pretty sure I could do this for less than $5,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Unless he defaults on the payment, and all these officials and players end up squealing because they haven't been paid. But once it's clear that there's no money to be had anywhere, they wouldn't squeal and risk tarnishing their athletic reputations forever. Would they?

Now my head hurts.

eddie. $5,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. i am shocked that you would sell your integrity so cheaply.
 


So what would you do with all that money? (Besides have U2 play for you every week)
 


Probably bet it all on red.
 


that's funny, i would've thought you would count cards using a 2:1 spread.
 


That's only if I have a bankroll of $200 and the casino is spiking my drinks.
