A bettor lost $1.4 million by picking the Los Angeles Chargers to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Imagine losing $1.4 million because the Jacksonville Jaguars won a football game…
Yes, this actually happened. A human being with money to burn wagered $1.4 million on the Los Angeles Chargers to beat London’s Finest in Duval County. This was a live bet when the Chargers were up 27-0 in the first half of their AFC Wild Card game. The Bolts had -12500 odds to win. The $1.4 million wager would have netted the bettor $11,200. It was the worst bet to ever be placed.
Not only did the Jaguars erase the 27-point deficit, they went on to beat Los Angeles, 31-30…
No wonder Trevor Lawrence went to Waffle House to celebrate such a momentous occasion!
Dumbest human being alive lost $1.4 million betting on the Los Angeles Chargers
Let’s be real. What kind of dumb idiot has this much available cash to burn? Whether this is an eccentric billionaire or one of their offspring who has never worked a day in their life, is there a worse way to burn seven figures in a few hours? You could throw it into speculative cryptocurrency, but being a complete degenerate might be the way to go. Draft Kings kept the receipts.
As one of the new homeowners getting sage advice from Dr. Rick, he’d be sure to tell you they don’t build those big buildings in Las Vegas for nothing! What this horrifically-timed bet tells us is there are no guarantees in life except death and taxes. Gambling may be a fun way to have rooting interest in a game you do not care about, but losing seven figures like this shows off its dark side…
Overall, this wager gone to hell in a handbasket proves there are no get-rich-quick schemes in the wonderful world of gambling. Live betting is a dangerous game, as this poor bettor grabbed a live wire and got burnt to a crisp, just like Brandon Staley’s Angeleno tenure. The only way to fix this is to hire Sean Payton. All the while, Duval Doug Pederson is becoming a legend by the nanosecond.
Never wager on a snakebitten to hell team like the Chargers, Atlanta Falcons or Minnesota Vikings.
