Jameis Winston Involved In Point Shaving ?

Has he lost his chance to play for the Raiders?


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.

Winston's play in the 1st half was atrocious ... and FSU was down 21-7.

FSU eventually came back and won the game -- but according to the report, the final score had no bearing on Rabb's bet.

FYI -- point shaving is illegal and punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

So far, it's unclear if law enforcement is investigating -- but we're working to find out if that's the case.

7:55 AM PT -- We spoke with a rep for the FBI who tells us, "We are the agency that would investigate these claims."

However, when we asked if there was an active investigation into Jameis ... the FBI told us, "I can neither confirm nor deny that we are investigating allegations of point shaving."

A gambling website has alleged that Jameis Winston shaved points in the first half of the Louisville game. The website alleges that Winston and a former high school teammate conspired to wager $5500 to win $5000 on a first half line of Louisville +1. The Seminoles trailed 21-7 at the half, winning Winston's high school teammate his wager.
According to the website it was the biggest bet that Winston's teammate had ever placed with the bookie.
Quoth the website:
"Bookie meets with Chris Rabb morning before Louisville / Fla St game and receives $5,500 from Mr Rabb with instructions to bet Louisville +1 (1st Half) -110 to win back $5,000. Bet was placed and Louisville won 1st Half vs Fla St (21-7). Mr Rabb is now suppose to receive $5,000 for winning bet + his $5,500 initial bet (square up day is Tuesday)
Bookie gets information late Sunday night that he's been "Played for a fool" as Mr Rabb and Jameis Winston are former teammates and conspired together on the above mentioned first half wager. Bookie wants no part of paying the debt. (i think he should pay he took the bet he knows the risk... just my opinion)
Bookie is claiming he has betting screenshots of the bet and proof it's Mr Rabb's account (look below for all bets placed last week)
Now does this mean we have a scandal on our hands? Does this mean Jameis Winston is gambling (crazier things have happened)?
This certainly all could be a coincidence that a former HS teammate and close family friend (Chris Rabb) made his biggest bet ever ($5,500) on game where his friend (Jameis) had probably his worst half ever in college... it's all just a coincidence right?"
...
Update As of 9:45 AM est.. IBN attempted to reach out to Chris Rabb via phone and someone did answer the cell phone, we asked if he had any comment on "alleged" gambling rumors that involved him and his former high school teammate Jameis Winston, his answer was brief "Fuck boy how did you get my number?.. mind your business boy" that's when the phone hung up."
This story is spreading across the Internet like crazy -- dozens of you have emailed and Tweeted it to Outkick -- and several major sites are investigating the allegations as I write this.
So do we believe this story? And do we trust this random website that hundreds of thousands of you are now reading and sharing online? Do we trust their documentation of bets and reporting when there's no basis to believe them other than the allegations they've written?
Winston's play in the first half against Louisville was atrocious, he threw two interceptions and completed less than half of his passes. It was among the worst halves of football he's played in his college career. If his high school buddy placed an uncharacteristically large wager on the first half line that's pretty suspicious, right? But on the other hand it seems incredibly stupid to undertake this much risk for $5k when Winston will make $5 million in a few months. Plus, the line was Louisville +1, why not keep the game closer on the offensive side of the ball? Hell, why not wager on a first half line in a game where the line wasn't even close and there's no risk of ever losing? Ultimately, I just don't believe it's possible that Jameis Winston could be this dumb. That's despite the fact that Winston has clearly made very dumb decisions before. There's no way Winston was shaving points, right?

Fuck Jameis Winston, but this sounds like a bunch of horseshit

Lol i ran out the other night and some guy called in to the Finebaum show talking about this. The author of the original article is named Incarcerated Bill.....

"A gambling website has alleged that Jameis Winston shaved points in the first half of the Louisville game."

All I need to read about it!!!!

This is insane.

Although he is getting fucked by the NCAA's corrupt system and if he toyed with it a little (the autographs) no one on their way to the NFL would shave points.

Also, how did he get the defense to let L'ville score on almost every possession in the first half?

Oh yeah that's rock solid evidence right there.


I am so sure he would risk losing his first game ever to help his HS buddy win 5K.

I heard he killed Lindburgh's baby.

congratulates self for making timely reference

I'm sure ESPN will begin reporting about it like it's true, even before any real evidence comes out. Phone Post 3.0

Especially if Jer-uh Jones mentions him in some fashion.

This kid is surrounded by controversy. Rape, theft and now possible point shaving.


What round in the draft does he go and who is willing to run the risk and take him?

Adrian McPherson 2.0

LOL at the very first sentence!

Hired Gun - This kid is surrounded by controversy. Rape, theft and now possible point shaving.

Goes in the first round

Jesus you just can't make this shit up at this point with Winston.

Of course he still has a shot to play for the Raiders. They will undoubtedly take him over Hundley, Mariota, or Prescott you know solid prospects who seem to not be totally retarded.  It's the fucking raiders they drafted JaMarcus sizzurp Russel regardless of his red flags and the alarm bells.

I heard unconfirmed reports that Hired Gun beats children.

Winston will be successful in the NFL.

Jameis surely is an fool, but if he was involved in that shit he's a special kind of stupid.

Raiders have their QB of the future. Fuck this guy! He'll be Jafatass #2... Phone Post 3.0

Fake Pie - I heard unconfirmed reports that Hired Gun beats children.
