Jesse Eisenberg’s Duke Basketball Mishap

“Social Network” star Jesse Eisenberg is apparently not as good at gambling as the man he plays on screen…recently, Eisenberg had placed bets on Duke winning the NCAA basketball tournament, but he and many others were let down when the top seed pick was eliminated.

Duke was crushed by Arizona, who beat them 93-77. During the first half, Duke was doing quite well, but they faltered in the second half, during which Arizona really proved themselves. Wildcats player Derrick Williams was especially brilliant, as he played his best game yet, with an impressive 32 points and 13 rebounds.

Ultimately, the Blue Devils played a good game, but they were no match for the Arizona Wildcats. Even though the Duke Basketball team had mainly been playing the season without the aid of superstar player Kyrie Irving, they were still placed as top seed.

Perhaps this will be a lesson to Jesse Eisenberg and others who bet safe: Sometimes, its worth going out on a limb and betting on the underdog, when it comes to gambling.
