A sports bettor managed to take full advantage of one of College Football’s biggest upsets in 32 years this past weekend as Texas State went on to beat Houston 30-13 as a +34.5 underdog.
William Hill, no relation to the big name British bookmaker, placed his $2000 bet at Binions Sportsbook in Las Vegas. He got 60-1 odds on the bet and netted a cool $120,000 as the Bobcats went on to upset Houston.

Our friends at LostLetterman.com referred to him as a "lucky bettor." We say anyone who seeks out one of the few casinos to offer a money-line on Houston-Texas State and plunked down $2,000 on the massive dog is more than lucky. "Degenerative" is a word that comes to mind, but so do other phrases like "way too knowledgeable about future Sun Belt members" and "must be so attuned to the workings of the Houston Cougars athletic department that it could be Clyde Drexler."
