A gambler who won big last year lost big THIS year as he placed a $1.5 million wager on the Los Angeles Rams to win Super Bowl LIII, making him a colossal loser (even if we're still jealous that he won all that money last year).
The punter took and placed a $1.5 million wager on the Rams to win the game at +120. The bet would have paid out $1.8 million if he won, but it was not meant to be, as the Patriots won a defensive game 13-3, scoring twice in the last eight minutes of the game.
While the loss was a big one for the gambler, he reportedly won $10 million on the Patriots-Eagles Super Bowl matchup in 2018, with $7.4 million placed on different money lines for the event. He also won big during the 2017 World Series, cleaning out books in Las Vegas.
Betting on the Super Bowl is always big business around the world, especially in the United States, where billions is wagered both legally and illegally. The activity will become even more widespread as more states legalize the activity.
We'll be informing readers as we learn more about the crazy bets placed by punters for this year's big game.
