Big money is being bet on the Tennessee Titans for their Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
With confidence in the Tennessee Titans at an all-time low within the fan base, one bettor is showing plenty of confidence in the team from Nashville this week.
In fact, this bettor’s confidence is worth $50,000.
According to Las Vegas bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, one bettor has placed a wager of $50,000 on the Titans at +4 against the Atlanta Falcons.
With the way the Titans offense is playing of late, this is a risky bet to say the least. In Week 3, Tennessee lost by 13 points, which would have made this particular bet a loser.
The good news for this bettor is that when the Titans seems to be given little or no chance to win — as was the case in Week 1 and in several games against top opponents last season — the team rises to the occasion and surprises experts with a “W”.
Perhaps that’s what this bettor is banking on, or at least on the possibility that the Titans will put up a fight and make this a close contest, with the Titans getting four points.
So, if the Titans lose by three or less, or flat out win the game game, this person will be $45,454.55 richer. If the Titans lose by exactly four, it’ll be a push and this person keeps their money. A loss by five or more means this person is out of $50,000.
I’m not sure most Titans fans with the money to burn would make this bet. After all, the team has looked dreadful of late and it’s hard to have any faith in the Titans right now.
So, just know that if you’re feeling sad because of a Titans loss on Sunday, and that loss comes by more than four points, there’s someone out there losing what could amount to a year’s worth of salary or more for some people.
