The Odds For Super Bowl LIII Give Patriots Fans A Reason To Be Hopeful
Last night, the city of Philadelphia was thrust into slightly more chaos than usual after the Eagles took home the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in the history of the franchise after beating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII. The celebration will continue when everyone in Philly gets to take advantage of the free beer that was promised to the city, but that wasn’t the only thing that was on the line on Sunday.
Eagles defensive end Chris Long will now have to walk through life with his coach’s face permanently inked on his body, but something tells me he’ll be a little more happy to pay up than the sportsbooks that lost millions of dollars thanks to bettors who were banking on the upset (including one already rich person who got a whole lot richer).
If you managed to take home money last night— whether from the result of the game or some particularly savvy prop bet wagering— the responsible thing to do would be to reinvest at least some of your winnings, and as any experienced gambler knows, there’s no better way to do that than to let it ride.
The Westgate SuperBook released their odds for Super Bowl LIII almost immediately after the end of last night’s game, and while plenty of people are already foretelling the death of the Patriots dynasty, it doesn’t seem like Vegas has jumped on the bandwagon just yet.
I apologize for being the bearer of bad news for any Cleveland Browns fan who was somehow expecting something different.
