If memory serves right, O.J. Simpson was 3-1 to get convicted for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman during the Trial of the Century in 1995. We all know how that turned out.

He’s about those same odds today to receive his release during a parole hearing at a Nevada prison after serving almost nine years for armed robbery.

Bovada sports book has Simpson at -300 to be set free and +200 to go back to prison. The odds have moved in Simpson’s favor since Bovada set the initial line at -200.

Oddshark writes: “Since his last fruitful visit with the board where Simpson was granted parole for most of the convictions, the now 70-year-old inmate has been a ‘model prisoner’ and there’s nothing to indicate that he isn’t fully rehabilitated and ready to rejoin civilization.”
