Well, how many outcomes are their for that? Touchdown, field goal, safety right? 2 teams - 6 possible outcomes. Wonder what the odds were? Maybe this person covered them all and hit the jackpot.

Yeah 50/1 is ridiculous. Should've been at least 200/1, which are generally the worst odds for any team to win the Super Bowl at the start of the season. Realistically, probably like 1000/1. Casino got off easy.

On the other hand, anybody that has a grand to blow on that bet has too much money in the first place, so...

My thoughts exactly

With his 2nd Super Bowl win, Eli Manning has equaled the number of SB rings Belichick earned while with the NY Giants.

I found an article pegging the odds of any safety happening in a game at 1 in 20 but I don't know if it's accurate. There was six safeties in Super Bowls before this one, or 1 in 7.5ish. Either way it would then need to be the first score of the game *and* you would have to pick the right team. So yeah, 50-1 is pretty low.

The odds are usually structured to where this isn't a profitable strategy unless the longshot comes in, in which case you're better off just betting the longshot by itself and saving your money on the others.

It's really, really hard to find profitable sports bets.
