Al Michaels helps gamblers win ‘Deflategate’ prop bet

al-michaelsWe’ve noted Al Michaels’ friendliness towards gamblers many times in the past, but the NBC announcer truly outdid himself on Sunday night.

During coverage of the Colts-Patriots game, Michaels referred to the sports betting prop about how many times “Deflategate” would be mentioned. He then rattled off four straight “Deflategate” mentions to help bettors hit the over.

We can’t imagine sportsbooks will pay out on that given Michaels so obviously manipulating the outcome, but you can’t fault him for the effort.

And that was easily Michaels’ best shoutout to gamblers on “Sunday Night Football” since this one in 2011.
