The Rams Cost ‘Bettor X’ Nearly $4 Million in Super Bowl 53 Wagers

The poor Super Bowl performance by the Los Angeles Rams didn’t just rip the heart out of an excited fanbase and most of the nation that was rooting against the New England Patriots, but it also tormented the soul and bank account of one successful gambler known as “Bettor X.”

Starting with the 2017 World Series and stretching into Super Bowl 52, Bettor X had gone on a remarkable run by winning over $25 million dollars. He successfully bet on the Houston Astros and the Philadelphia Eagles during those two big sporting events and won big. So, when this successful bettor began wagering on Super Bowl 53, everyone took notice.

The anonymous gambler, entered the Super Bowl betting scene on Thursday, January 31st according to multiple outlets. His first wager was a $2 million dollar bet on the Los Angeles Rams moneyline of +120 odds. This larger football bet was placed at MGM Resorts. On Friday, February 1st, Bettor X then went over to William Hill and placed a second wager of $1.5 million on the Rams moneyline. He followed that up with a trip to South Point and a $300,000 bet on the Rams.

In total, Bettor X placed $3.8 million dollars on the Rams moneyline, which would’ve netted him roughly $4.56 million if Los Angeles won the game. Unfortunately for Bettor X and the Patriots haters, the Rams could only muster up 3 points in a losing effort.

It will be interesting to see how Bettor X responds to this big loss. According to this alleged hot streak of netting over $25 million, he still has at least $20 million in winnings despite the loss of nearly $4 million on SB LIII.

The Rams pathetic offense did bring success to one bettor who wagered $250 dollars on a scoring prop that Los Angeles would only score 3 points. The wager was listed at 400/1 odds, which means this gambler won $100,000 at South Point sportsbook. Unlike Bettor X, this sports bettor had luck on his side as the Rams attempted a 48 yard field goal with 8 seconds left in the game. But, Greg Zuerlein shanked it to the left and the Rams finished with just 3 points.

New England’s 13-3 win over Los Angeles, set a mark for the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history. The previous mark was 21 points when Miami defeated Washington 14 to 7 at Super Bowl 7. The Patriots also broke the Dolphins mark of 14 points and became the only team to win a SB by scoring 13 points or less. And, lastly, the Rams 3 points marked the second time in Super Bowl history that a team didn’t score a touchdown in the big game. The first time it happened was SB VI when the Cowboys beat the Dolphins 24 to 3.
