Gambler will let $14M in World Series winnings ride on Game 7

An unidentified gambler on an unbelievably torrid hot streak reportedly will take the $14 million he was won thus far on the 2017 World Series and let it ride on the outcome of Wednesday night’s Game 7 winner-take-all showdown between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros.

R.J. Bell, a Las Vegas insider and oddsmaker who provides betting lines to the Associated Press, provided the details of the absurd-money bet in a series of tweets, in which he also speculates on the exact identity of the mysterious gambler.

Whether or not Bell’s information is reliable remains to be seen. But if it is, imagine being in this guy’s shoes during Game 7. Given he’s 6-for-6 so far in World Series games, though, why should he begin to doubt himself now? Sheesh.
