Someone made a huge bet on Ezekiel Elliott to score a touchdown

Legalized betting allows all sorts of wagers to be made. Someone made a gigantic wager on one very specific proposition for tonight’s season-opening game.

A wager was placed in the amount of $75,000 with DraftKings on Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scoring a touchdown tonight. If he does, the wager will pay more than $140,000.

However it plays out, that person is about to be very nervous for the next few hours. Either Zeke will score, and more than $140,000 will come that gambler’s way. Or he won’t, and it’s $75,000 grand down the tubes.

There’s a good chance that the person who made the bet has a lot more where that came from.

  1. Won’t matter. Cowboys lose 34-17.
    La’el Collins is out for the season. First two drives for Cowboys go 3 and out. Meanwhile by the second quarter Bucs are up 17-0.
    Press rewind, hit play.

  2. It ain’t looking good for this guy’s before halftime.
    I hope he’s not betting his mortgage.

    Exactly my thought too. No matter how rich or poor they are, with only a 1/4 to go, this guy (or girl) HAS to be freaking out.

  5. I would hate watching a game that way. That must have been slow and painful.

    Now, BB making amazing decisions every game? I’d bet on that all day!

  6. If you are dropping $75K on a 50/50 bet, I “bet” you have $75K to simply burn. I “bet” the chances are even greater that if you did win, you would be dropping $140K again this Sunday, and the Sunday after that, and the Sunday after that. I “bet” this wasn’t the first time this cats been watching a game this way…just sayin’. I “bet” this cat has already begun placing wagers to recoup his $75K.
