The Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino has more reasons to want Kentucky to go 40-0 than Big Blue Nation does.

1 million of them, to be exact.

According to a story from, back in December, the Vegas sportsbook accepted a $20,000 bet on Michigan State winning the national title at 50-1 odds, meaning that if Tom somehow Izzos his way into two more wins, Derek Stevens will win $1 million.

But the story gets better from there.

Stevens, who owns a couple of hotels in Vegas, is a Wolverine!

How many Michigan men would be willing to lay down 20 grand on Sparty winning a national title?
