The things people do to make a small amount of cash with sports betting has just gotten crazier.
One degenerate gambler really must’ve needed $60 to add to his thousands because somebody actually dropped $29,900 on Trevor Lawrence to be selected No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. As you know, Lawrence has been the consensus No. 1 overall draft pick ever since he took over the starting job with the Clemson Tigers his freshman year.
Of course, he was selected and the guy won $59.80.
That wasn’t even the biggest bet on Lawrence as one person dropped a $50,000 bet on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell calling the former Clemson Tigers quarterback’s name first. That person actually came away would good cash as he caught Lawrence at -1250 and will net $4,000 off his $50,000 bet.
