Greatest Betting Win
My favorite betting memory without a doubt is when I had the chance to watch my TCU Horned Frogs win a College Football Playoff game live in-person. I typically stray away from betting on my favorite teams due to underlying bias, but we’re talking about the playoffs here! I cashed over 10 units on TCU +7.5 and TCU money line (+260) against Michigan. Of course seeing my alma mater reach the national championship for the first time in nearly a century was amazing in of itself, but it wouldn’t have been the same experience without a few units on the line!
