    Hmmmm ..... I've never bet on a sports game (other than maybe a friendly bet with a pal at one time or another). I might just bet on the Zags in Vegas this year. I'm a cheap skate on betting (not much of a gambler). I have no idea if there is a minimum that's a bit high or ???? Will check out the SuperBook. I feel the Zags have just as good a chance at winning the whole shebang as any other team in the Dance. All of my brackets will have the Zags on top.

    Update .... looks like you can't use the App outside of Nevada. I'm an absolute newb to any sports betting. A quick look at Northern Quest's website gives this information for sports betting in Washington: https://www.northernquest.com/casino/otb/#sportsBetting .... In short, not legal.

    I put 40 dollars on the Zags at the Bellagio. Also, (don't get mad at me, I am a diehard Zag fan!) I put 10 dollars on St Mary's to win it all. At 1000-1 odds! What the heck. Go Zags!

    Don't have that kind of money to spend, let alone wager.

    Crazy that the odds weren't much better when I put money on them at Ph last summer.

    I bet $50 on zags winning the Nat'l Championship in 2017 during the WCC Tournament. I will admit with about 2 minutes left against NC I was thinking as much about my $450 if we won, as I was thinking just "Go Zags" like I usually do.
    Judging from the talking heads, I would guess Vegas gives us a greater chance of taking it all, at this point in the Dance, than in 2017.

    I bet $50 on them winning it all that year before the year started at 65/1. The only time I've ever made such bet. I was dreaming of my all expenses paid trip to Vegas with 2 minutes left. Fortunately I hedged and put $500 on UNC to win the national championship. I also put $200 on South Carolina to cover in the final four game, which if memory serves they were +5.5 and we won by 5 so I won the bet and the Zags won the game. Still came out ahead but not as much as I could have.

    With that said, the Zags will never again see 65/1 odds to win the Natty. Ever.

    Have $100 on Zags at 12 to1. 4 of us made the same bet in Reno well before the season started.

    I do every June, $100 on the Zags, i have for 10-12 years. 2016 I got 88/1 in June(for the 2017 team). I had two people trying to buy my bet for $1k and even $1500 at elite 8 and final 4 marks. Still didn't think much about the $8800 possibility near the end. After all its just $100.

    I usually do the opposite. Whenever I go to Vegas I always put $100 on UNC because Iíd pay $100 to see them lose and all of their fans crying and if they win, the money will ease some of the pain. This year I got them at 15:1. However I canít find the ticket anywhere! So now I know that UNC will win it all and Iíll have nothing to show for it so Iíll be double pissed off. No need to play the games really, let those cheats hang another banner, Iíll be over here sobbing.

    That is a great story. I wish you (and me) had hit our jackpots. I can only bet when I happen to be in Vegas. So if I bet, its during the WCC tournament. Can't remember which year, but I bet on the championship between St. Mary's and us, it was $20, and I was surrounded by Gael fans during the game. They were polite and a lot of fun. We won and I got my $38. Your bet of 65 to 1 was when I never dreamed we would go that far. This year not only dreamers, but many talking heads predicted it. Yes, 65 to 1 will come again after I am dead, or possibly after Few retires, but I think Tommy Lloyd will keep it going.
