A Las Vegas sportsbook reportedly accepted over a half million dollar bet on North Carolina to beat Oregon outright in Saturday’s Final Four game.  UNC just barely did so with a 1-point victory.

Per ESPN.com:

The South Point sportsbook reported taking a $525,000 money-line bet this week on North Carolina to beat Oregon outright Saturday night, a wager at minus-210 odds that would net $250,000 if the Tar Heels prevail. According to South Point sportsbook director Chris Andrews, the bet was placed by a deep-pocketed new customer who has been backing North Carolina consistently during the tournament. The same bettor risked $100,000 on North Carolina to beat Kentucky in the Elite Eight.

Kennedy Meeks grabbed the game-saving offensive rebound to seal the deal for the Tar Heels and advance them into Monday night’s NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship game.
