Both semifinal games went OVER the total.

Billy Walters often wagered at MGM properties in Las Vegas.

Walters was released from prison last April, nearly two years in advance of his scheduled release date.

At the 5:00 minute mark, you could see OVER bettors were in trouble.

I saw an in-game total of 161.5 with about three-and-a-half minutes left in the game.

Baylor did a great job of milking the clock late in the game.

And credit head coach Scott Drew for not pulling the plug too soon.

The Bears started to milk the clock at just the right time.

Gonzaga managed only eight points over the final seven minutes of the game.

Only 19 points were scored in the final seven minutes of the non-competitive game.

Cost me $2100 YouWager and $1800 Bookmaker. Always something to piss me off. Gonzaga got embarrassed. No precedent for an undefeated team to get beat that bad that late. Usually Tony Homo. They were out of it after the first TV timeout.

He was pardoned by Trump
Not so, even though it was erroneously wideky reported as a pardon, it was a just a commutation of his sentence.

From the official government document:

William Walters President Trump commuted the sentence of William Walters. This commutation is supported by former Majority Leader Harry Reid, former Governor Jim Gibbons, former Representative Shelley Berkley, former Clark County Sheriff William Young, former Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, numerous professional golfers including Butch Harmon, David Feherty, Peter Jacobsen, and Phil Mickelson, and former 60 minutes correspondent Lara Logan. Mr. Walters was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for insider trading. Since his conviction, Mr. Walters has served nearly 4 years of his prison sentence and has paid $44 million in fines, forfeitures, and restitution. In addition to his established reputation in the sports and gaming industry, Mr. Walters is well known for his philanthropic efforts and was previously named Las Vegas’ Philanthropist of the Year.

Some of these philanthropists are a joke! They steal money, donate a small portion back how they wish, and then claim to be a philanthropist. Billy should never have received a sentence commutation. He committed a serious crime at least partially due to his gambling addiction.

I stand corrected, you are right. Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick received a commutation of his sentence as well.
