The Los Angeles Rams’ lackluster offense in a 13-3 Super Bowl defeat to the New England Patriots didn’t make for exciting football ― but it made one lucky bettor $100,000 richer.
The gambler wagered $250 at long shot 400-to-1 odds that the Rams, averaging nearly 33 points per game in the regular season, would score just 3 points in the big game, according to South Point Sportsbook supervisor Tim Fitzgerald in Las Vegas on Monday. When Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein missed a 48-yard field goal attempt with just seconds remaining, the bettor became a winner.
At least for that lucky fan, it was probably the most exciting Super Bowl ever.
We can’t say the same for the famed Bettor X, who lost a reported $3.8 million betting on the Rams ― to win.
