New Yorker Places Crazy Bet On Buffalo Bills
Ever since online sports gambling became legal in New York State, Western New Yorkers have been all-in on the Buffalo Bills. But one recently placed bet could win a New Yorker 150k!
New York State dove feet first into the world of online sports betting back in January of this year. Empire State residents were so into the new way to wager on their favorite teams, that the state set a record, raking in nearly $2 Billion in sports wagers during the state's first 30 days of legalized mobile sports betting.
The Bills are the current leader in the odds clubhouse to take home the Lombardi Trophy, sitting at +650. Meaning, that if you were to place a $150 bet on the Bills to win the big game and the dream comes true, you would pocket a cool $1,125.00.
When it comes to sports betting though, I like to find the bets that are a little off of the beaten path. A same-game parlay, maybe a 5 team parlay on any given Sunday, or futures bet on who will hit the most Home Runs in the MLB season (Come on Aaron Judge at +550!!!).
According to Pickwise, one New York gambler is putting $150 on the line that the Buffalo Bills will do something this season, that has only been accomplished twice in NFL History. And if they hit, they'll take home a whopping $150,000.00!
In NFL history, only the 1972 Miami Dolphins (Who went on to win Super Bowl VII against the Washington Redskins) and the 2007 New England Patriots (Who went on to lose Super Bowl XLII to the New York Giants, have ever gone undefeated in a regular season.
The Bills have the 15th hardest schedule in the league in 2022, so they sit mid-pack. Is it probable? No. Is it possible? Yes.
If they win, beers are on the lucky gambler!
