Idiot Bets $1,000 to Win $14.30

Recently an idiot bet an absurd amount of money on a boxing match for a 0.0143 return, definitely coming in near the top in terms of most absurd bets this reporter has ever heard of.

A punter ended up plopping down $1,000 on the boxing match between Vasiliy Lomachenko and Jose Pedraza over the past weekend. The issue at hand was that the gambler placed a huge amount on Lomachenko to win the fight, despite him coming in at -7,000 on the line. This means that a whopping $7,000 bet would only return $100 in profit, despite carrying significant risk of the boxer losing the fight.

Luckily, the punter ended up winning, as Lomachenko took the bout in a unanimous decision, allowing the punter to rake in the cash. What can the gambler get with his winnings? Well, we took a look and determined that the winnings are enough to buy:

  • 2 boxes of uncured bacon jerky from Amazon.com
  • A 2019 Pooping Pooches calendar
  • A Cheeto that looks like a man's penis
  • 8 Rockstar Energy drinks
  • 14 cheeseburgers from McDonalds

Wow..that's a really stupid stake especially when you risking such a huge amount of money for a tiny profit like that.
I've had some petty odds really stupid stakes over the years(often those had been a loosing ones too)but nothing close in terms of size of the amount staked in this case...it's that make me an idiot...I guess so 🙂

I don't know if he's a complete idiot. It's a better interest rate than the banks give you.

Just kidding.

I remember years ago Australia got beaten by Bangladesh for the first time in a one day cricket match, which was a massive upset. Actually it still might even be the only time they have won. Anyway before the game Australia were "unbackable" 500-1 on favourites (i.e. bet $100 to win $0.20) but still loads of punters were reportedly wiped out. And I remember wondering why on earth would anybody risk $100 just to potentially win 20 cents?

When the payout is that bad, it makes you wonder if the bettor is just looking for the thrill of possible defeat. If I ran a book and saw someone place that bet, I’d give them the slip and a pamphlet to Gamblers Anonymous.

Upon re-reading this article I just noticed the following:

"A Cheeto that looks like a man's penis"

Lol, that is hilarious! 1000 bet is so much so you'd need to be very sure about what you're betting on..
