MGM sportsbook won big after $420,000 bet on Ravens to beat Titans
There was no need for an “Uncut Gems” style multi-parlay for Ravens-Titans.
MGM’s sportsbook won over $400,000 when an individual bet an extremely high amount on the Baltimore Ravens to beat the No. 6 Tennessee Titans in the AFC Divisional Playoff on Saturday. Sadly for that bettor, he went home nearly half a million dollars poorer when the Titans upset likely NFL MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Tennessee will go on to the conference championship game.
MGM sportsbooks took a $420,000 wager on the Ravens to win the game (at -420 odds) and had a big day as a result of the Titans’ win, telling ESPN that they “cut down the nets.”
The Ravens were also ten-point favorites among sportsbooks, and their shocking loss to head coach Mike Vrabel’s team cost them the title as the only undefeated team in the Super Bowl era when favored by ten points or more.
For some, they knew the Ravens’ regular-season success was too good to be true. Despite entering Saturday’s divisional matchup with the Titans with a twelve-game winning streak, Baltimore lost in in their first game of the postseason for the second straight year; last year it was against the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Titans, meanwhile, have been a good bet for people ready to risk dough on the NFL after upsetting the Patriots and Ravens as underdogs—and they’ll likely be labeled as such against either the Chiefs or Texans next week.
