$150 to get back $151
some do this just 2 win something
and get free drinks/points/rebates/cash back on the total wagered.
(depends on the book)

Gonzaga was $500 to get back $501 (william hill, 1/500) on the money line on Thursday
(better bet,imo, was -16 1st half after losing the game before)
today they are 1/16

a 3 team ML parlay on the 3 No 1s that played yesterday was about 1/24
bet $24 to get back $25

these money lines can get crazy.
especially the ones that move during the game before they are removed completely.
seen them as high as 1/999 (william hill mobile)

The books do win one every now and then.
Virginia, last year, comes to mind.

I bet $250 on Duke last night at -10000. They were up by 24 with 4 min left. I think they screwed up by even offering it.

The first comment said, "He probably got 3 drink tickets out of it. Genius move." I agree there.

Some Baccarat player is going to use this bet as a system justification in the near future.

I love getting my free drinks by betting $20 to show on a huge favorite.
