That fictional boxing character from that movie was an underdog too, wasn't he? WASN'T HE?
Everybody loves an underdog. And everybody loves Mo'ne Davis. So the rest of the country will have an extra reason to cheer on the kids from Philadelphia tonight because oddsmakers have them as big-time underdogs against the high powered Las Vegas team.
According to SportsBet.com, the Taney Dragons moneyline for tonight's game is currently +345 while the West team's is -470.
That means if you bet $100 dollars on Taney and they win, you'd get a $345 payout whereas if you wanted to bet on Las Vegas, you'd have to bet $470 to win $100.
Also, if you bet on Little League games you probably have a serious gambling problem. So seek help.
Game time is set for 7:30 on ESPN. We'll be watching.
The Taney Dragons are +345 tonight. Free money. http://t.co/Wptq3lhTY7— Bryan Armen Graham (@BryanAGraham) August 20, 2014
