The Wolverines advance, but a whole lot of money just changed hands in Las Vegas because of the final play.

Michigan beat Oklahoma State, 92-91, to advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament.

But thanks to a final-second three by OSU’s Jawun Evans, everyone who’d bet on Michigan to win and cover the spread ended up losing money, and everyone who’d made a Cowboys bet (and probably already given up on it) walked away with cash, thanks to the backdoor cover.

And since Michigan is the bigger name and more popular school, it’s no surprise that more bettors had money on the Wolverines covering. Vegas always wins in the end.

However, one person’s bad beat is another person’s shrewd investment.

Either way, Brent Musburger’s smiling somewhere.
