He said money line, which for the SMU game was probably +400 to +450. That game and betting Tech money line would have made you about $500 if you put down $100 on every game. Offset the $300 losses on the other road games and you are up $200 with one road game to go. Worst case you profit $100, best case $300-350.
It would have paid out better last year with a 3-2 road record and big money line payouts against Tulsa and Tulane. In 2016 we went 2-3, all 3 losses were upsets so even better. 2015 depended on that UConn spread, either breaking even or making a small amount. Might be the most solid betting strategy I have seen in a while!
