The story of the bettor who placed an $85,000 wager on Tiger Woods to win the Masters, a bet that will pay out $1.19 million, is getting a little weird.
That’s because James Aducci, of Wisconsin, says it was his first bet ever.
Hold up. So this guy never bets in his life, has $85 grand laying around and decides to throw it on Tiger Woods to win his first major in 11 years. James Adducci might be the smartest man on the planet. Or I’m the dumbest. One of those is possibly true.
I’m not saying it’s a made-up story, but it’s a little hard to believe. Whatever happened, this dude laid down bank on Tiger to win a tournament and is walking away with a million. If this indeed his first-ever sports bet, it’s one of the greatest gambling debuts in sports history. Put him in the hall of fame right the hell now.
Won’t ever be me, probably. Lucky bastard.
