(LAS VEGAS KXNT)– Not surprisingly, sports books in Vegas are doing some brisk business on the college football championship that wraps up the season. Alabama is a 9 1/2 point pick over Notre Dame heading into the game in South Florida.
At Terrible’s Casino, KXNT’s Trevor Smith was unable to find a single wagerer who was betting on ‘Bama to repeat as national champion. And one bettor was not only picking Notre Dame, he was placing an additional wager on the Irish basketball game with the University of Cincinnati also on Monday night.
Jimmy Vaccaro, with William Hill sports betting, predicts record numbers will be wagered on the game by kickoff. And to the delight of sports books, the betting is an almost even 50-50 split among bettors.
