The Juice is lose and we have OJ Odds

O.J. Simpson was released from jail yesterday after posting $125,000 bail after spending three days in jail.

A Nevada judge set bail yesterday for the former football star on charges stemming from Simpson’s confrontation last week with sports memorabilia collectors. The defense and prosecution agreed on the bail amount, which was confirmed at a brief hearing before Justice Court Judge Joseph Bonaventure.

Simpson, who was released in the early afternoon. He planned on returning to his Florida home, his lawyer, Yale Galanter, said during a televised news conference.

BetUS.com is also offering betting odds on how long OJ Simpson will be spending behind bars with over a year being a +500 underdog with a payout of $500 for every $100 bet.
