MGM's Vegas sportsbook accepted a monster $330K wager on the Atlanta Falcons at -2.5 on Saturday, Dec. 1, its largest wager of the NFL season.


And after 60 minutes of hard-fought football, the Falcons put up arguably their worst showing of the season at home, losing 26-16 to the Baltimore Ravens.


So yes, someone had a worse betting day than you did in Week 13. 

The Falcons not only fell into last place in the NFL South with their fourth straight loss, but they also cost this one bettor a huge chunk of change.

Prior to knowing the outcome of the game, MGM didn't move their line from 2.5. Instead, they just inflated their moneyline on the Ravens, hoping for an influx of bets on Baltimore. And it seemed to work.

Either way, that's an enormous amount of money to put on one game, and as the old saying goes, "Vegas Always Wins."


Maybe that's true this time, but the bettor could always double down on the Falcons, who head to Green Bay this coming Sunday to take on the Packers as 6-point underdogs, according to  FanDuel Sportsbook. If this is a superstitious bettor, then we might see another large wager being placed for Week 14, but this time on the Mike McCarthy-less Packers.
