Not uncommon,  its basically an even field across the board (also, I'm not allowed within like 50 yards of any school).  No long shots.   No betters advantage by placing multiple bets on long shots.

In an 8 team field, all 8 teams cannot be less than 8:1 odds of winning.  I spent enough time at Oaklawn growing up to understand that.

No. You're looking at it wrong. It's not the 8 teams, it's the 12 to 15 individual games. It's the odds of each team winning a game, then the next game against variable opponents, then the next game. Etc.

Exactly what it actually is, but that's not what posters here or the original article said it was, it said was the odds to win the CWS.

It's gambling odds not odds odds,  there's is a difference.   Vegas is trying to profit, not get the math right.

All that means is that the sportsbook has one hell of a take out on it.

The racetrack is parimutuel.  Huge difference. 

The first thing we're gonna do is we're gonna acknowledge that this guy is awesome.  I mean he shoots Theo Tonin;  fakes his own death in a spectacular fashion;  pushes a guy out of an airplane while he's flyin' it;  parachutes into Harlan County with enough coke and cash to jumpstart the economy of a small country;  then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement - not once but two times;  he spends a couple days ridin' around with you - while you're lookin' for him;  and now he's run off with a hooker that's half his age.  That's some badass shit.

Well, hopefully he's wrong, but that opinion isn't exactly a stretch.

USA Today writers either have Stanford or Aggie winning the CWS. One of the writers have us in the finals against Aggie and losing in 2 games. None of them have us winning the 1st game vs Stanford.

Trust me, as you get to know me I just get weirder

I went to the Casino at Oaklawn late afternoon yesterday.  I think if I remember correctly, A&M was +750.  I strongly considered putting a bet on them but didn’t have the stomach for it.  They really came on strong late in the year.

Damn Bobby Petrino!!!  What the Hell was he thinking?

That's tough.  I'm not sure I could stomach making the finals and having to lose to those farm and domestic animal fuckers.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Aggy vs Mobilehoma. 

This may be the single largest collection of hicks in the history of the CWS.

On the D1 staff picks, 4 out of the 8 picked the Hogs to the Championship Series and 2 picked us to win the natty.

Apparently none of these people has watched us play this season.
