Bettor wins $1,275 on first score of Super Bowl XLVIII being safety
Mark Cuban did not win $20 million betting that the first score of the Super Bowl would be a safety like he initially claimed, but one lucky bettor picked up a cool $1,275 on the outcome.
William Hill tweeted the betting slip for someone who struck gold on the 50:1 bet, placing a $25 wager to net $1,275 and profit $1,250. The person appears to have placed the bet at Four Queens, which is an establishment in Downtown Las Vegas.
Now how’s this for some craziness? RJ Bell at Pregame.com says this is the fourth time in the last six Super Bowls that there was a safety. The previous 42 Super Bowls only had five.
So what does this teach us? Why not sprinkle your money around on everything when it comes to Super Bowl prop bets! You’re sure to hit on at least one! (and lose a ton of money in the process)
