  in Iowa City as a project. It took prodding from assistant coach Reese Morgan -- who had an extensive backgrou

Four months after the Boston Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, ending their 86-year championship drought, then-Caesars Palace sportsbook director Chuck Esposito was sifting through baseball revenue numbers, trying to figure out why they had won so much more money than he had expected.A lot of the [Red Sox] futures tickets went uncashed. People saved those as souvenirs, Esposito recalled. It wouldnt surprise me if the same thing happened again with the Cubs.Las Vegas sportsbooks allow guests to mail in winning tickets anytime from up to 30 days to as much as a year after the event is completed. At Station Casinos, the deadline is 180 days to cash a winning ticket. (Although, being the generous bookmakers they are, the rule is loosely enforced). There are a massive amount of Cubs futures tickets out there, each with mailing instructions on the back. The Cubs, as longtime lovable losers, have always been a popular bet in Las Vegas and were often among the sportsbooks worst-case scenarios.This year, with the Cubs the favorites, even more bets showed up at the windows. Three and four times more bets were placed on the Cubs to win the World Series than on any other team. And, yet, Las Vegas still won.We actually needed the Cubs in the Series and in Game 7, Esposito, now the sportsbook director at the Sunset Station casino, said. Esposito, a Chicago native and lifelong Cubs fan, watched Wednesdays Game 7 at Brandos, a Las Vegas sports bar that caters to Chicago fans. He said the bar went silent when Cleveland Indians centerfielder Rajai Davis tied the game with a two-run home run off Cubs reliever Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning.Shortly after, Esposito elected to race home during the 17-minute rain delay between the ninth and 10th innings. He made it home and got to enjoy a special moment for him, his 12-year-old son Nicholas and all of baseball.I think [Nicholas] understood by my reaction and probably the tears in my eyes that it was something that was pretty special, said Esposito.The betting on the seven-game World Series was phenomenal, Esposito said.The overall handle for our sportsbooks and the atmosphere and excitement and the crowds, I cant remember it being like that of late for a World Series, Esposito said.Like Esposito, Aaron Kessler, sportsbook manager at the Golden Nugget, is a native of Chicago and lifelong Cubs fan. During his 10 years working at the Golden Nugget sportsbook, he had missed family events and weddings, because he couldnt get off during football season. But he made it happen for the Cubs return to the World Series.It was incredible, said Kessler, who took time off and traveled to Cleveland for Games 6 and 7. It was the first days Ive taken off during football season, other than my normal days off, in 10 years, since Ive had this job.The Golden Nugget, like most books in town, was in good position on either the Cubs or Indians winning the World Series, so Kessler didnt have to worry about rooting against his employers best interests.If my job was on the line, that would pretty much be the only thing that would prevent me from rooting for the Cubs, Kessler said with a chuckle.Stratosphere sportsbook manager Hugh Citron, another native of Chicago and lifelong Cubs fan, couldnt get off from his busy shift to watch Game 7. He caught bits and pieces of the game while working Wednesday and was back in the office entering a final score on an NHL game when he heard a loud yelp.I saw [Davis] going around the bases with his arms out and said, thats not good, Citron told ESPN. Citrons late mother and father were big Cubs fans.Im going out to the cemetery (on Monday) to put a Cubs hat and jersey on Mom and Dads grave, he added.Odds and ends-- It was another up-and-down weekend for Las Vegas sportsbooks, which saw Saturday end with back-to-back wins by heavily-bet favorites Alabama and Ohio State. The Buckeyes 62-3 rout of Nebraska produced the Westgate SuperBooks biggest loss on an overall losing day for the house. Sunday wasnt much better. The MGM sportsbook came up on the short end in four of the six early games and were hit hard by the Dallas Cowboys 35-10 blowout of the winless Cleveland Browns. However, the Indianapolis Colts outright upset of the Green Bay Packers helped the house mitigate a lot of the early losses, leading to a break-even day at the Westgate.-- Game 7 of the World Series generated big handle, but it was still far less than the Super Bowl. More than seven times more bets were placed on Super Bowl 50 on the Sunday of the game at William Hills Nevada sportsbooks than were placed Wednesday on Game 7 of the World Series.-- Updated lines at the Westgate SuperBookNov. 26: Michigan at Ohio State -4.5Nov. 26: Auburn at Alabama -14 Cheap NMD For Sale .

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa linebacker Josey Jewells pre-game routine includes a music playlist he dubbed Kinnick in honor of the Hawkeyes home stadium.Jewell lined the songs up so that oldies from bands like Boston and REO Speedwagon play first, helping him keep his burgeoning intensity in check. As the team bus gets closer to the stadium, Jewell pumps music from heavier bands into his ears, fueling a fury he eventually unleashes on opponents like few players in the country.When I get on a football field, I just kind of turn a switch, Jewell said.Having the foresight to plan details down to the song is just one of reasons why Jewell, affectionately nicknamed The Outlaw by fans, is the latest overlooked Iowa recruit to develop into a star. Jewell and his Big Ten-leading 105 tackles were rewarded Monday, when he was just one of five players nominated for the Butkus Award, given to the nations top linebacker.Jewell and the Hawkeyes (7-4, 5-3 Big Ten) close out the regular season Friday against No. 17 Nebraska (9-2, 6-2).Oh man. I mean, If you could just see how he operates every single day. Ive never seen anything like it, defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson said. Its unbelievable ... he just does everything at a high level.But like Dallas Clark, Bob Sanders and current Green Bay Packers star Mike Daniels and many others before him, Jewell arrived in Iowa City as a project. It took prodding from assistant coach Reese Morgan -- who had an extensive background coaching in high school -- to convince coach Kirk Ferentz that Jewell was even worth a scholarship.I thought with Josey at least wed get a guy who was a winner. Everything he did, he won. Certainly a leader. Certainly a tough-minded guy, Ferentz said.Jewell arrived at Iowa as a 190-pound multi-sport athlete frrom Decorah, Iowa whose recruiting offers came mainly from local FCS schools.dddddddddddd. He redshirted in 2013, focusing on getting his body ready for the rigors of the Big Ten.Jewell spent most of his first year in Iowa under the tutelage of longtime Hawkeyes strength coach Chris Doyle.Hes a great motivator. He gets you going with everything. If youre not going hard enough on something, hell make sure youre going hard, Jewell said of Doyle.Jewell made such an impression that he cracked the starting lineup late in 2014. The first true sign that Jewell might be special came in an ugly bowl loss to Tennessee, when he made 14 tackles in a game the Hawkeyes knew was over before halftime.In addition to putting on over 40 pounds since high school, Jewell became dedicated to film study. The results truly began to show last season, when Jewell made a team-leading 126 tackles and was named second-team All-Big Ten.Im not the strongest, fastest or biggest guy out there, so I just try to take advantage of the small things, whether it be watching more film or giving more in practice. Anything possible advantage I can take, Jewell said.Jewells emotions can still get the best of him, as he got ejected for targeting in the season opener and nearly got tossed from another game. But Jewell has proven to be both an inspiration for an improved defense and the spark that raises the intensity level for Iowas entire team.Hes got great character. Hes someone that you want to lead your team. Hes going to show you the right way, said senior cornerback Desmond Kin
