Bettor "X" - Vegas Strikes back!
'Bettor X' finally lost. The Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 in the lowest scoring Super Bowl ever giving 'Bettor X' his first big loss in years.
He had placed three moneyline bets totaling $3.8 million on the Los Angeles Rams to beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 53:
$2 million bet at MGM
$1.5 million bet at William Hill
$300,000 bet at South Point
He would have netted $4.56 million dollars since all three bets were made at +120 odds.
During the last World Series, he famously became known as the “let it ride” bettor who went 6 of 6 on his bets before cashing in ahead of game 7 for a reported $10 million.
The same dude returned for the Super Bowl, and 'Bettor X' turned the Eagles’ win over the New England Patriots into at least $6 million: "Bettor X" put $3 million on the Eagles at the MGMsports book.
The gambler also, reportedly, put a $1 million, money-line bet on the Eagles at William Hill U.S., $700,000 and $500,000 bets at OG Technology and South Point's sports books.
“He’s one of the guys who was floating around betting all that money on the World Series,” veteran Las Vegas bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, now of the South Point. “I don’t think he lost a bet then. We’ll see how he does now.”
No sportsbooks have revealed who 'Bettor X' is, but don't feel too bad about the loss; he's still up over $20 million on his epic run.
Winner - winner
Although a lot of people picked the Rams to lose in Super Bowl LIII, no one could have guessed that their offense would disappear completely - except possibly this guy:
A gambler in Nevada bet $250 at the South Point sportsbook that the Rams would score exactly three points in the Super Bowl and he got 400-to-1 odds when he made the bet.
The lowest score ever by any team in the Super Bowl was three points, which means the Rams would have to tie the record for fewest points ever for this bet to pay off.
Keep in mind that the Rams finished the 2018 season as the NFL's second-highest scoring team with an average of 32.9 points per game.
Missed it by this much -
The Rams drove down the field in the final minute of the fourth quarter to set up a 48-yard field goal attempt for Greg Zuerlein. If he hits the kick, the guy loses $250. If the kick misses, dude wins $100,000. With eight seconds left, Zuerlein's kick sailed wide left to seal the Rams' 13-3 loss. Cha-ching!
