At the moment, Eli Manning is one of the least popular human beings in the five boroughs of New York. Thanks in part to Eli’s two interceptions yesterday against the Washington Redskins the Giants now find themselves sitting behind the Eagles, occupying second place in the NFC East Division. Earlier today we saw this monumental meltdown from a Giants fan, one for the ages, but I’d bet that meltdown has NOTHING on how the bro below felt when Eli Manning fucked up his 8-team parlay and cost him $150,000.
via ESPN’s David Purdum:
A bettor at CG Technology placed a $1,500, eight-team parlay on Friday. The ticket included four Friday baseball games (Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers) one college football game on Saturday (Iowa State -7) and three NFL money lines on Sunday (Green Bay, Denver and the New York Giants). The first seven legs all hit, leaving it all up to Eli Manning and the Giants on Sunday. Manning threw an interception on the Giants‘ final possession of a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins. The parlay would have paid $150,000.
The first seven hit and then you get to watch Eli Manning fuck up your shot at $150,000 by throwing INTs to the Washington Redskins in the 4th quarter, and one of those INTs happening in the goddamn end zone. Washington’s a team that’s as synonymous with losing as the Patriots are with winning, going into that game with the previous 7 bets already hitting it must’ve seemed like a LOCK.
Anyways, if you’re into reading about the craziest betting news of the weekend you should really check out ESPN’s ‘GAMBLING RECAP’ and check out the wild swings caused by UCLA vs Standford and Tennessee’s comeback win against the Florida Gators.
