A gambler out of Eastern Europe has already won big on the World Series, and he has no signs of stopping. Now he has over $14 million on the line for Game 7 and has left the gambling world wonder how?
This isnt a case of a single gambler throwing down huge money on a single game. The bettor has won on all six World Series games so far spread across multiple bookies and let it ride after every single win. When the Dodgers won Game 6, he could have taken home over $14 million, but he let it ride again.
Little is known about the gambling mystery man, prompting people to raise questions. Hes not a regular in the Las Vegas sports betting scene, and his only other previous bets were on UFC fights, all of which he won. The odds hes taking are consistently bad, prompting people to wonder whether hes just lucky, or if this is part of a scheme by a larger syndicate. Others are questioning whether the mysterious bettor exists at all. Its a fascinating story that has become part urban legend, as much as anything else. RJ Bell, who has been following and tweeting about the bettor, claims his bets are so big and against the odds so severely that hes single-handedly changing the lines in Vegas.
People are desperately trying to learn the identity of the bettor, how hes predicting these games so perfectly in a series that has been totally up in the air, and waiting to hear where hell put all his money on Game 7.
Trends continue until they don’t.
Damn, I didn’t think they were paying attention to my wagers..
According to a couple of recent articles here I would think it would be of great interest to a number of young women also.
Obviously Marty McFly is back from the future. Or the past. Or... whenever.
I know a guy that is a very good BB handicapper. He makes a decent living doing it and has for years. He is not even close to this “person”. Makes you go Hummmm.
Just laundering the money that SP isn’t..../tinfoil off
If he wasn’t, then he must have won Powerball.....
Biff Tannen lives!
Some people have that talent. Odds are this person is just a representative for a group and they may be using computers to determine the bets.
I wish I could statistically analyze sports games like some can.
“Obviously Marty McFly is back from the future. Or the past. Or... whenever.”
Can’t be him ... his sports almanac “expired” in 2000.
I have a feeling it’s Dr. Sam Beckett. He more than likely got sick and tired of righting all of the wrongs, placing bets and cashing in, stopping at the bar that we saw in the final episode of Quantum Leap, and getting out of that whole leaping business. I can’t blame him.
If I had that Sports Almanac for the past 50 years, you think I would waste my time on FR lol. I would be on a beach somewhere surrounded by hot wowmen with just a laptop to make the bets.
I think I saw this already - in a BACK TO THE FUTURE sequel!
I was kinda pissed last night when Beringer hit to short stop when he erred on the play because had Beringer had run full speed he would have beaten the throw.
Really, all I wanted to know from the article is which team was he betting on for the 7th game. Did I miss it?
Yep—that’s what I wanted to know, too!
I’m betting he has a deal with the devil.
Time Traveler, or a true Psychic.
Anyone know how much the first bet on Game 1 was?
How many of us have had this fantasy?
