Punter Loses $3.8M on Los Angeles Rams Bet to Win Super Bowl LIII

Tags: Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots, sports betting, Super Bowl
Posted on Thursday, February 07, 2019 by "T".
The seemingly lackluster Super Bowl 2019 cost many people a few hours of their lives; however, for one Las Vegas sports bettor, it cost him almost $4 million. A Rams fan who had been correctly predicting and winning millions from Las Vegas sportsbooks in the previous years has now gotten it wrong, costing him a total of $3.8 million in this year's Super Bowl when Tom Brady and the New England Pat[...]   Read more » Punter Loses $3.8M on Los Angeles Rams Bet to Win Super Bowl LIII

And... its gone. That is the problem with betting. As long as the predictions are right, all is fine and dandy, but there will come the day, when the outcome is different then one did expect, and the whole bet is lost. That is why i don`t understand people, that buy such a high amount of money on a single event.

This bettor X is a big gambler who is comfortable with the American football predictions or with baseball.
He is not a crazy man, he knows what he does, but he can not always bet matches and win.
He had bad luck, but he can return with other winning bets.
There is also the possibility of losing everything.
It is interesting how a betting house can accept a bet of 2 million, 1,500,000 or 300,000 dollars.
In my country there are some betting houses with a maximum win of $ 25,000 or 50,000.
That means they do not accept bigger bets.

I was devastated when i lost my tenner on the game so i can only imagine how this guy was feeling!! Seriously though, if i had been winning so much, i would have been very tempted to up stumps and enjoy my money

Can you say bad luck there? How many times did he expect he was going
to win such bets. It was just meant to happen at some point
Wonder if he has anything left after that loss, cause it looks like a big gambler.
But he might be one of the rich and famous, and that money,
is like pocket money to him Smile

maybe he is regular at betting shops and not just for big events,so who know what kind of history he have and what kind of winning bets he had!ofcourse you cant win every time and guess every final,especially when you play this kind of sports on points difference,its hard to guess that will be over or not!

Intuition matters a lot when you bet on a victory at points difference, but for bettor X is more difficult of course, because he also calculates other results of the matches of the two teams, who is fighting in that Super Bowl.
Do not believe it as a gambler can bet millions without knowing anything about that.
He knows what he does. Smile

Unless you have an "insight" and im talking for a fixed game Smile
then even the gambler or bettor if you like, even if they are the best informed out
there, they are risking their money, in every single game.
Who hasnt lost money so far in a "sure" game.
I have lost more than once in a game with odds less than 1.10 Smile

He deserved it IMO. He put down a big goddamn bet on a shaky team, which never recovered after the Bears defense picked them apart in early December. The fact that they ended up in the Super Bowl was the achievement itself. wonder why McVay was unable to adapt in either game.

I do not want to bet on odds lower than 1.40. I was disappointed with many matches with odd of 1.05 ( Real Madrid play at home with a relegated team ) and same with Juventus or Bayern Munchen.
For years i do not bet anymore at low odds but this player really knew what he was doing.
He won a few millions of dollars and i do not think he's crazy because he is an experienced bettor.
I made dozens of tickets this year and no winning ticket, but this Bettor x is a real gambler. Smile

Experience has nothing to do with betting at the end.
Its not like he is shooting darts.
He is making a prediction, according to the data he is having and his knowledge on each game.
And some times of course this happens.
Something that can be repeated over and over again Smile

Every data - especially the condensed playoff data - showed that the Pats will have no problem handling the Rams yet this guy made a choice to bet the opposite.

We can write a book about the advantages, disadvantages, experience, dilettante etc... but in many areas exist professionals or less. I remain in my opinion that this man did not bet without knowing this sport. The only way to find the truth it's like Bettor x to appear and say his story. Smile
