The Jaguars finished last season at the basement of the AFC South, with a less-than-stellar 3-13 record. Despite an active free agency where they succeeded in acquiring a bulletproof defense, the stench of last season put the Jags at 100-1 odds to win the Super Bowl this year. For perspective, the Patriots odds to win it all were twice as good as any other team in the NFL and three times as good as any other team in the AFC, at 15-4 odds.
For one gambler, an ageless Tom Brady leading his team to the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history last season wasn’t impressive enough for him not to bet against the Pats this year in favor of the then dismal Jacksonville Jaguars.
Five days after Super Bowl LI, a man bet $990 on the Jags to win Super Bowl LII at 100-1 odds. The Jaguars must go 2-0 to close the season and this dude wins $99,000. Granted, beating New England at home will be the fight of a lifetime for Blake Bortles and the Jags, but nonetheless, a win over the tried-and-tested Steelers last week must have the team hungrier than ever.
Another guy placed an aggressive Super Bowl LII bet, by throwing $53,700 on the Patriots for a potential net win of $150,000. Who the fuck has $50,000+ in disposable income to throw on a sports bet? Not I, sir. Not I.
