TMZ- New reports have surfaced alleging Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was involved in a point shaving scheme to help an old high school teammate win a $5,000 bet.
According to the report, Winston tanked the 1st half of the FSU vs. Louisville game on October 30th ... after his buddy Chris Rabb allegedly placed a bet for Louisville to be winning at halftime.
There is no way this is a true story. Not because Jameis Winston is a really good guy and would never shave points. I'm not here to speak on Winston's moral compass. That's a charge even his priest would plead the fifth on. I simply don't believe it's real because Jameis is too damn stupid to lose intentionally. If he tanked a football game on purpose there is no way he could make it look nearly as good (bad) as the first half against Louisville looked. The ability to intentionally be bad while giving the illusion that you are trying takes the ability to think. You think Winston just walked into the locker room at halftime and flipped a switch. There is no switch, it's pure darkness up there. Literally the only thing that Jameis Winston is good at is winning. He can't even process anything else. I'm pretty sure he can't even add the scores up. Probably has no idea what a touchdown is worth.They just tell him on the sidelines to keep scoring.
Say this is true, wouldn't it be like way easier to just bet on Florida State. The halftime line was Louisville +1. Couldn't you just tell the former Heisman winner to be winning at halftime? Worst fucking friend ever. There is a 0% chance of me helping my friend win a bet if he bets against me. Can we just think about how little sense that makes? If Jameis Winston has complete and total control of the score then bet on him and tell him to go win by 100. Seriously, if this is actually true then the biggest criminal here is Winston's high school friend for being a shithead. They say some athletes surround themselves with the wrong people. The friend that puts all his money against you is a first class example of that.
Might as well be a dunce cap...
