Talking Points: Check those bet slips
Monday, September 12, 2011
What’s the buzz from the world of sports? Here’s items that will have people talking:
If you bet on Saturday night’s USC-Utah football game, you might want to check again to see if you won (or lost).
You see, 2 hours after the game was over, the final score changed.
From the L.A. Times:
“The game ended with the score 17-14 after game officials disallowed Torin Harris’ 65-yard touchdown return of the blocked kick. Officials announced that they had assessed an unsportsmanlike penalty against USC, erasing Harris’ touchdown, but the block stood.
“But two hours after the game ended, the Pac-12 overruled game officials, crediting USC with the touchdown and no doubt sending Las Vegas bookmakers who had paid out winners into a fit: USC was a 8½-point favorite.”
