This NH Man Made a $300 Boston Red Sox Baseball Gamble
It's exciting enough whenever Boston teams win in the postseason, but when you factor in Las Vegas sports bets? Things can get downright stressful.
On my trip to Vegas last December, I was sent with explicit instructions to bet on a few different baseball teams, but once I arrived in Sin City, I was faced with a dilemma.
Since Opening Day was still four months away, the sports books weren't 'taking action' on the total number of wins that a team would have in the 2018 season and my buddy wanted the "OVER" on the Sox.
Since it wasn't available, I took that $50 and put it on Boston to win the Pennant. As you can imagine, it got stressful as the Sox racked up a franchise record 108 victories and he didn't win one cent.
Thankfully, Boston easily dispatched the reigning World Champs in the ALCS and now that ticket (only pays 5-1 but hey, not bad) will be cashed in when I return there in 48 days! (not that I'm counting)
If you read my henscratch closely, you'll see that I made the same bet for another guy on the Yankees. WHO CARES? Too bad, so sad. hahahahahahahhahahah
You'll also see that Boston had 10-1 odds to win it all, if they do that, I'll have an additional ticket to cash in for $550!
