An Alabama fan won $1.60 on a bet for the Crimson Tide to beat Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday. A very small payout, especially for such a large bet.
According to David Purdum of ESPN.com, the unnamed bettor threw down $1,579.65 to win his measly $1.60. Alabama was listed as a 99,000-1 money-line favorite—the maximum allowable in the Las Vegas system.
The Final Score: 56-14

Obviously this bettor has never heard of risk versus reward. To put up that kind of dough with such little return is just plain stupid.
Of course, Alabama was never going to lose the game. A total lock.
Would love to find out who the bettor is if anyone knows who he/she is. As usual our tip line is open for business.
