Bettor Loses $80,000 After Straight Bet On The Patriots To Beat The Dolphins

If you’re feeling down about your team’s season ending Sunday, don’t worry, you could be this guy.

Typically a Week 17 game between the Patriots and Dolphins is a mean less game with nothing but bragging rights up for grabs.

This time, the same held true for Miami, but New England needed a win in order to secure a first-round bye in the playoffs, a scenario the Pats have never won a Super Bowl without.

With this in mind, William Hill placed a bet just shy of $75k on the Patriots they wouldn’t drop a game against the 4-11 Dolphins.

It was a bad choice.

On the contrary, a bettor also putting money on the game put a bet $744.55 on the Dolphins to win straight up. He won $6,329.
