Booker T. Washington

Sportsbook has no respect for Booker T. Washington

By: @AndySlater

The Booker T. Washington football team has won 41 consecutive games. That number is almost as big as how many points an offshore sportsbook is giving them for their opening game vs. St. Thomas Aquinas.

The site 5Dimes has Booker T. as a 34.5-point underdog for Friday night's contest.

The Tornadoes have won three consecutive Class 4A titles. Their opponent, St. Thomas, is the defending Class 7A champ.

The game will be played Friday night at Brian Piccolo Stadium. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. and it will be televised on ESPN.

Apparently, some bettors believed the original point spread for St. Thomas Aquinas was a bargain. Booker T. Washington is now a bigger underdog.

This afternoon, St. Thomas remained at a 36.5-favorite. Within the last six hours, the line has dropped steadily.
