You bet Indianapolis at +3.5 and won it, as they convered the 3 and a half point spread. Your bet was 75, and the odds were 1/1, so you came away with 75 in the bonus.

75 + 28 = 103

500 + 103 = 603

I think it did you right... any sharks want to check my math (or hell, logic)?
He's all layin' down the law and all that stuff.
