    I can see your reasoning but why does Vegas set the parameters right now all of a sudden?

    the bet was the end of the season, and it is currently the end of the season

    I don’t want to be involved but if I made that bet with someone I’d be paying up

    No reason Rutgers can't be good consistently.

    Because this wasn't the typical end of a season. This is unprecedented territory. Not to mention, it was close enough that the remaining two games could have made the bet go either way. If it was lopsided, fine, but it's not. And if Vegas doesn't consider the season finished, neither do I.

    You and B-Westy should do a double or nothing bet for next season then

    Good thing we never made the bet dependent on any Vegas rules or contingencies on a world-wide disease outbreak. Those parameters were never established. Pay up you welching low-life.

    there was no champion in any of the Conference Tournaments nor a National Champion so yes the season is unfinished.

    all bets are cancelled. even Vegas is returning the money that were wagered on the outcome of conference tournaments and the NCAAT.

    Lol. Sorry man. It’s an unfinished season. Once the NCAA Tournament champion is crowned then we can figure out who won the bet.

    It is not unfinished because the season is OVER. There isn’t going to be a national champion. There isn’t going to be an NCAA tournament. It’s done. Finished. They aren’t picking this back up sorry to say.

    Precisely. So you can’t magically make up rules now after the fact. That’s not how it works. I know you’re strapped for cash at the moment so maybe we can do a 10 week installment package? What you think? $10 a week and we call it even.

    If Vegas says full season bets will be returned, I think the bet should be off.

    But if not, @SNU0821 needs to pay up.

    So is it all futures bets or just the ones that haven't happened at all yet?

    Yeah it's close enough that it's hard to have a true outcome now. Go with Vegas betting rules.

    or compromise. Snu pays the bet , B-Westy has to admit Purdue did not make the tournament and Indiana was going to. He can never talk about Purdue's steak of 5 in a row and has to admit Archie led indiana to the tournament.

    I don't really give a shit whether he pays or not.

    At the end of the day, all that matters is Purdue was a better three point shooting team. That's WAY more important than making a non-existent NCAA tournament!!

    Congrats to Indiana, very few teams can say they’ve ever won their last game of the year.

    Of course. We'll be talking shit about that for decades. People will forget who didn't get invited to this tournament by next month.

    Besides, given how shrewd the talking heads at the Big Ten office are, I hear they were going to give Purdue the autobid. That way, the Big Ten would have made more money with 11 bids. #ChessNotCheckers

    That one is pretty cut and dry because the tournament hasn't started. What about full season prop bets? I wonder if they are being paid out or refunded.

    This. Roll over the percentages and combine it with next years and do double or nothing.
