One Man Put $10 On VCU At 5000-to-1

Think you are smart because you had the Butler Bulldogs upsetting the Pittsburgh Panthers, or the Arizona Wildcats defeating the Duke Blue Devils in your NCAA Tournament bracket?  Well if you did, give yourself a pat on the back, and enjoy it, because that is just about all you are likely to receive for your outlandish prediction.  As for the one man who placed a $10 bet on the Virginia Commonwealth Rams to win the entire tournament earlier this season, he may come out with a little more than just a pat on the back for his unimaginable prediction.

With VCU paying out a hefty 5000-to-1 to win the NCAA Tournament earlier this season, one man – who must own a crystal ball – decided to throw $10 bucks on the Rams at the Hilton’s sportsbook in Las Vegas and see where it takes him.  It has since taken him to the Final Four, as the Rams are only two wins away from making the lucky man $50,000.

I guess Shaka had this man believing a lot earlier than the rest of us.
