We’ve seen some insane bets over the years, and this next one might be up there with them.
Cincinnati Bengals fans are hoping that No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow can help turn around a franchise that has been bad for quite sometime now, but they aren’t crazy to think that things will turn around in year 1. Well, one guy does.
The Bengals are still a distant longshot to contend for a playoff spot in 2020, but that didn’t stop one guy for placing a huge wager on the Bengals to emerge as the best team in the AFC. BetMGM announced the bet, which will payout $1.2 million on a $5,000 bet (240/1 odds) if the Bengals enter the playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
Unfortunately for that bettor, the Bengals have to play teams like the Ravens and Steelers twice as well as make trips to Indianapolis and Philadelphia. Not to mention, there’s this generational QB who plays with the Kansas City Chiefs who might have something to say about that bet.
