Jameis Winston: Issued a Civil Citation for Shoplifting

The big news in college football today is the fact that super star signal caller and Heisman winning quarterback Jameis Winton was issued a civil citation for shoplifting. The Florida State baseball team acted quickly by suspending the superstar from the baseball team, and this is actually good news for the football team. If you don’t think bad news can help a player and a sport, pay attention.

The Florida State Seminoles are defending champions and they are the favorites to repeat. In fact every top rated online sportsbook here at Bangthebook.com will reveal that the Noles are the favorite to win again, but this news could change everything.

Like a stock broker looking to buy a stock at a low price, now is the time to buy in on the Seminoles. First let’s break down the details of this ridiculous event. ESPN was happy to break down the incident. Leon County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Michael Wood said Wednesday that the 20-year-old Winston ordered the food at the deli in a Tallahassee, Fla.-area Publix on Tuesday night. After receiving the order, he left the store without paying.

Wood said Publix employees called deputies, who went to Winston’s apartment. Wood said Winston was “very cooperative” in a post-Miranda interview and acknowledged not paying for the food, saying he forgot. After consulting with Publix managers, deputies issued Winston a civil citation that will require him to complete at least 20 hours of community service. If he does that, no criminal charges will be filed. He will also likely have to pay restitution. This should be music to the ears of sports bettors.

If you think for one second that this team has a chance to win it all, now is the time to buy in. Winston is ashamed and has learned his lesson. His punishment does not affect the football team and he is less likely to do something this fall. An event like this will also focus the young man and we have all seen what he can do when he is focused on being the best player in the game.

The public sports bettor will react to this by bailing on the Noles and flocking to a team like the Alabama Crimson Tide, but stay the course. If you like the Noles it is your day and you can actually get better odds based on this news. If you read the news like a rookie, it can cost you. Instead, read the news like an experienced sports bettor and take advantage of the lower odds and bet on the Seminoles to win the title today.

Winston will put this behind him and when he is in the running for another Heisman award and has the Noles in line to win another title, no one will remember this incident.
