When Aaron Rodgers said back in Week 11 that the Green Bay Packers could “run the table,” one Packers fan in Vegas took him very, very seriously. As a result, that fan is now on the verge of turning a $300 bet into a $100K+ payday.

According to Adam Shecter, founding editor of The Source, current editor of Medium’s Cuepoint, and former director of programming at Wynn Las Vegas, a friend of his placed a $300 moneyline bet that the Packers would beat the Eagles in Week 12. At that time, Green Bay was just 4-6 and in desperate need of a six-game winning streak to even have a chance at salvaging their season and making the playoffs.

When Green Bay won that game, Schecter’s friend decided to let it ride and bet on the Packers again in Week 13. When the Packers won that game too, he let it ride again. Then he did it again, and again, and again, and again.

Heading into Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, the original $300 bet had turned into a $10,259.50 bet with a payout of $28,213.60.

Take a look:

Now Schecter’s friend has decided to let it ride again for the Packers’ game against the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game. If he wins that bet, he’ll win $76,176.70:

If the Packers wind up in the Super Bowl against the Patriots, this guy is going to have some serious soul-searching to do.

On the one hand, Green Bay would almost certainly be underdogs against New England, meaning he would stand to win over $150,000. On the other hand, it would really suck to lose $76,176.70.

Stay tuned.
