Ohio State beat VCU in the NCAA tournament on Thursday, but gamblers in Las Vegas were more interested in the point spread.
The oddsmakers in Las Vegas knew Thursday's VCU-Ohio State game would be a close one, and it was.
The bookies had the Buckeyes, the lower-seeded team, as a 3.5 point favorite, so plenty of people wagered on the Rams.
VCU trailed trailed by five with four seconds to play, but freshman guard Jonathan Williams hit a layup as time expired and all of a sudden VCU had covered the spread.
Somehow, the cheers of those who bet on VCU drowned out the groans of those who bet on the Buckeyes.
