Bettor who risked insane money on Titans comes out a big winner

A bettor who put $50,000 on the Tennessee Titans at +4 in Week 4 versus the Atlanta Falcons is a big winner.

On Saturday, we told you about some crazy bettor who put $50,000 on the Tennessee Titans to cover a spread of +4 against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4.

Well, while we still think this person is crazy, the bettor actually turned out to be right and netted themselves quite a payday after the Titans won 24-10 on the road in Atlanta.

First, here’s a look at the ticket, which was provided by Las Vegas bookmaker, Jimmy Vaccaro, on Friday.

The reason we thought it was crazy was because the Titans had looked awful the past few weeks, with losses to the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars. Tennessee combined for just 24 points in those two contests, and the offense looked absolutely lost.

Adding to that, this was a road game for Tennessee.

With the Titans limping into Atlanta, head coach Mike Vrabel’s squad dominated from the first quarter on and not only posted 24 points on offense, but their defense shut down Matt Ryan and Co. to the tune of just 10 points.

So, with a +4 spread, the Titans ended up doing their part with a 14-point victory to help this person enjoy quite the return.

For his risky wager, the bettor will collect $95,454.55 in total, which means this person will get a $45,454.55 return on their investment.

I couldn’t even imagine putting that kind of money on a football game, whether I had it to burn or not. That’s a year’s salary or more for a lot of people, and even the most confident Titans fans wouldn’t have had the guts to process that one with the way this team has been playing.

Hats off to this person, even though I will remain consistent in questioning their sanity.
