It has been 60 years since the men’s team won back-to-back World Cup titles. But if you think that makes France a long shot at hosting the Cup this year, you might want to check out one seven-legged bettor’s all-time futures offering.
According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the bettor has the chance to turn a $26 bet into over half a million dollars. And it all comes down to the French men’s team winning it all in Qatar.
The first six bonus rounds have already been cashed in, and they’re an impressive roster of champions this year: Kansas men’s basketball to win the NCAA Tournament, Warriors to win the NBA Finals, Avalanche to win Stanley Cup, AC Milan to win the Italian League, Los Angeles F.C. C to win the MLS Cup and Manchester City to win the English Premier League. Now, if France wins the World Cup this winter, this bettor’s $26 bet would turn out to be $557,770.91.
Talk about the return on your investment.
How this person was able to correctly predict the champions of six major sports tournaments is incomprehensible. It is unclear if the bettor has a chance at a refund, or if any hedge odds are being pursued. But while the majority of football viewers cheer their national team of choice, the rooted interest in at least one person will transcend all sorts of national pride or heritage.
