St Louis fan collects $100,000 with $400 wager when Blues win the cup
Isn’t betting beautiful sometimes. Just look at this tweet:
This piece of paper, purchased in Vegas in January for $400 is now worth $100,000. Remarkable. pic.twitter.com/l7ffGIgptT— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) 13 de junio de 2019
Yep, that’s Scott Berry’s bet slip with 250 to 1 odds for St Louis Blues to win the Stanley Cup.
Bet made - in January. Wager - $400. Potential loot - $100,000. St Louis Blues position in the league at the time of the wager - 31/31. The bottom of the bottom, dead last.
And guess what happened last night?
St Louis Blues won game #7 of the Finals against Boston Bruins 4 - 1 and collected the first ever Stanley Cup in franchise history, and made Scott Berry 100,000 bucks.
Darren Rovell from The Action Network has reported on Berry’s feelings during the match:
"You know it's so funny, it's like I never in a million years thought I would be watching a game where I either am a $100,000 victor or I'm walking away with my tail between my legs.
I've got all faith in these guys, I still think they're gonna do it
But, I've got all faith in these guys, I still think they're gonna do it, they're a better road team so tonight's gonna be an emotional roller coaster. You'll probably see me in tears either way."
Scott Berry is a gutsy guy.
Or would you have not hedged that bet before the game #7? Say, put $20,000 on Boston to win the last match and collect at least $20K x Boston odds to win the match? I would have probably done that.
