The guy who bet $330,000 on the Falcons today lost a lot of money.— Jason McIntyre (@jasonrmcintyre) December 2, 2018
Atlanta averaged 2.9 yards per play today. At home. Just 131 total yards. What a bad bet this guy made https://t.co/GrkBs6Q66C
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.
2/ Per @MGMRaceSports @scottatmirage on BAL-ATL: "We got a lot back on the Ravens moneyline -- we never moved off 2.5, we just juiced moneyline. At +135/+140, they'll take it with Baltimore. Right now, it's Falcons -145/Ravens +125, and Ravens bettors not taking that." @Covers— Patrick Everson (@Covers_Vegas) December 2, 2018
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.
