St Louis fan Scott Berry turned 400 bucks into $100,000 when Blues won the 2019 Stanley Cup!
This is how it feels to think that you might win $100K:
That’s Scott Berry after Game 2 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals.
Here’s his bet slip for what turned out to be one of the best bets of the 2018/19 NHL Season:
Yep, that’s 250:1 odds for St Louis Blues to win the Stanley Cup.
Let’s recap the main deets:
- Bet made: in January 2019
- Wager: $400
- Potential loot: $100,000
- Blues’ position in the league at the time of the wager: 31/31
In January 2019 St Louis was the bottom of the bottom, dead last in the league.
And guess what happened in June?
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 Scott Berry made 100,000 bucks.
Darren Rovell from The Action Network 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 wouldn’t you have 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.
Congratulations to Scott Berry
Well played, Scott Berry, well played indeed.
A quick look at the new updated odds tells that early on in the 2019/20 season, Ottawa fans could try the same as Scotty B last year – Senators are priced 251:1 at Spin Sports and 301:1 at Bet365 to win the Stanley Cup.
