Proving that you can bet on anything, Bookmaker.com has set odds on whether Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel will survive an NCAA investigation into his cover-up of his players' acceptance of illegal benefits.
The website set odds on what will happen to Tressel in 2011. It also shows percentages on the likehood of four options occuring.
Gets a suspension and $250,000 fine: +180 (35.5 percent)
Gets only a suspension: +120 (45.5 percent)
Gets fined more than $250,000: +200 (33 percent)
Gets fired: +180 (35.5 percent)
Ohio State has already announced it will fine Tressel $250,000 and suspend him for the first five games next season. The 'Gets only a suspension' bet would require the NCAA to remove the fine from Tressel's penalty and just suspend him.
All the bets are based on the premise of wagering $100. For example, a wager of $100 that Tressel will be fired would net the bettor $180 if it happens.
