Sports Book Refunds Wagers on Arkansas - Lost Lettermen

Sports Book Refunds Wagers on Arkansas

September 11th, 2012| by

If only high-stakes poker games were this forgiving.

The online sports book is refunding the money of any customer who placed a bet on Arkansas before the Hogs’ 34–31 upset loss to Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday. The Hogs were 30.5-point favorites and choked away a 28-7 lead to lose in overtime.

“The loss was unbelievable, and to profit from it really doesn’t sit well with us,” said Dave Johnson, head oddsmaker for the site. “That’s why we’re refunding every single player who dropped money on Arkansas to win. It’s the right thing to do and we’d be shocked if other online sports books don’t follow our lead.”

Razorbacks players probably wish they could get a similar “do over” for their on-the-field performance.
