Per The Big Lead, there are 14 people who made an offseason bet at the Las Vegas Hilton sports book that Auburn would win the BCS Championship.
The odds: 1,000 to 1. Seemed like a safe bet -- for the sports book.
After all, Auburn went 3-9 overall and 0-8 in the SEC. Who could have seen their turnaround?
Now, if Auburn wins the SEC title game over Missouri while either Ohio State or Florida State is tripped up in their conference title games (Ohio State is the better bet for that to happen), the Tigers could very easily be playing for a national title.
And 14 bettors could be in for the wildest three hours of their lives.
