As a follow-up to our exclusive interview this morning on #ANumbersGame @VSiNLive, @MGMResortsIntl @MGMRaceSports VP @Jay_Rood confirms to me that he took a multi-million dollar bet on #FlyEaglesFly in #SBLII.— Gill Alexander (@beatingthebook) January 25, 2018
It is NOT the largest bet MGM has ever taken.
Assuming this is the same person referenced in the following tweet, they aren’t just taking the Eagles to cover the spread, which is now at Patriots -5. They are taking the Eagles to WIN the 2018 Super Bowl.

Famous World Series Let-It-Ride bettor in negotiations with MGM to make BIGGEST sports bet in Las Vegas HISTORY on #FlyEaglesFly to win #SB52 (upwards of 8 FIGURES expected on this historic bet!)
That’s a lotttttt of money.
The referenced bettor here, by the way, picked all six 2017 World Series games correctly before cashing out with $14 million prior to Game 7. So they have a track record of success.
Eagles fans will sure hope this bettor is right about their pick this time as well.
Question for Eagles fans: would you consider betting on the Patriots so that you could 1) win money if the Eagles lose or 2) not feel bad about losing money if the Eagles win? I’m not saying I’m doing that, just some food for thought.
