  • Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have both plead not guilty to the charges.
  • A prop bet on Bovada has the acceptance of a plea deal the most favorable choice for this situation.

LOS ANGELES – There is a prop bet listed on a sportsbook for Lori Loughlin’s trial questioning whether the actress will take a plea deal or not. Loughlin has been in the public eye for quite some time as a focal point in what is being dubbed as “Operation Varsity Blues.” She, along with dozens of other parents including fellow actress Felicity Huffman, have been charged with paying off colleges to allow their children admission into the schools.

Huffman pled guilty and was sentenced to 14 days in prison of which she served 11. She also had to pay $30,000 in fees. While Huffman didn’t actually bribe a university, she did pay $15,000 to get her daughter the proper SAT scores to be accepted into a proper school. But Loughlin’s case is not as simple.

In order to get her daughters Bella and Olivia into USC, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli committed fraud. They falsified photos depicting their daughters as athletes to get them into USC. Along with that, they paid the university half a million dollars in bribes to get their girls into school. The charges against her and her husband include money laundering, fraud, and bribery.

Despite being offered plea deals, they have both decided to go ahead with a trial and have plead not guilty. Accepting a plea deal could potentially result in a ten-year prison sentence. However, if found guilty after the trial, there is the possibility that a 50-year sentence could be handed down.

While Loughlin has not yet accepted a plea deal, Bovada, one of the top online sportsbooks for US bettors,  has listed a prop bet in favor of the actress going ahead with a plea (-150). Not taking the deal (+110) will prolong “Operation Varsity Blues” even further. With her family being torn apart over the issue, Loughlin may very well change her mind.
