Guy risks $1.4-million to win a measley $11,200 on the Chargers the last week

In the 1st-half of last week's Wildcard game in Los Angelas between the Chargers and Jaguars, the home team jumped out to a 27-0 lead.

It didn't look good at all for the punchless jaguars.


At that time, Draftkings offered a money line wager - Chargers -12,000.

That would mean you need to wager $12,000 to win $100. That's not a lot of money to risk $12k on. But one guy took it even further.


$100 isn't going to change the lives of many people, but perhaps the $12k would.

So, this particular guy figured that in order to make a reasonable amount of extra cash he would lay down $1.4-million to make $11,200 on the Chargers taking that 27-point lead and holding on until the final whistle.


Well, that didn't happen. The Jaguars completed the 3rd-largest comeback in NFL playoff history and a very disappointed bettor was out his $1.4-million.


The Jaguars outscored the Chargers 24-3 in the 2nd-half and drove 51-yards on their last possession of the game and Riley Patterson kicked a 35-yard field as time expired to cap-off the incredible comeback.


To make it a little more painful, Chargers kicker Cameron Dicker missed a 40-yard field goal with 8:27 left, that would have given the Chargers the lead and potentially given them a chance in OT instead of walking off the field at the end of 60-minutes knowing that they did a whole lot of things wrong in order to find a way to lose that one.


I'm not sure who felt worse about that loss, the Chargers or the guy who risked a ton of money to win a little bit of money in comparison.


I myself have made some stupid bets, but that one goes against all common sense.

Yogi Bera told us a long time ago......"It aint over 'til it's over."
