Famous Gambler Says Wrong Team is Favored and Then the Line Moves & Profits Roll in
This last week a Legend some have heard of Jon Price went live on the air across America & Canada on his weekly radio segment and called out the Vegas oddsmakers claiming that the wrong team was favored in a College Football game on Saturday between Wake Forest and Virginia. Jon’s radio segment aired on over 175 sports radio stations and thousands of sports bettors turned a serious profit thanks to Jon’s advice.
Those who were contrarian lost. Those who listened profited. Here’s the story.
Jon Price and his team handicap their own games and come up with their own odds lines and then compare them to that of the Vegas oddsmakers to find any distinct value in potential plays. In mathematical speak this is called Delta. That’s exactly what Jon saw when the line for the game opened at Wake Forest +2.5 against the Virginia Cavaliers. Not only did Jon think the 2.5 point line was off, but he thought that Wake Forest should clearly be the favored team in the matchup.
When he took to the airwaves on Tuesday, Jon called his shot and proclaimed that this will be his single biggest wager not only of this year, but in the last 5 years. He called it, “The Vegas Mistake.” As he explains on his radio show, the Vegas oddsmakers rarely miss this badly on a line, and he instructed all of his listeners to take advantage. As the week played out, it was clear that Jon Price knew something the oddsmakers didn’t.
The line was still at 2.5 points when Jon made his call on Tuesday that the oddsmakers had messed up, and that’s when things started to develop… The line slowly slipped throughout the week, and by kickoff on Saturday the Wake Forest Demon Deacons had flipped the line and were now favored by 1.5 points, and even 2 points at some other books. Jon had already proved his point that the wrong team was favored and that he was one step ahead of Vegas the whole time, but he wasn’t done… He placed his largest wager in years on both the Demon Deacons with the points and on the moneyline for them to win outright.
When Saturday came, the game played out as if Jon wrote the script for it. Wake Forest jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and after a few scores and then Virginia fought to make things close, Wake Forest then pulled away in the second half and poured gasoline on the fire, finishing by a score of 40-23 in a convincing win.
