Here’s a refresher in case you missed the previous article. On Sunday a friend and I each bet $20 on a futures bet for the Phillies to win the World Series at 1,000-1. As I shared, he bet first and after contemplating the wager I ran to the Planet Hollywood (owned by Caesars) sportsbook to place my bet before the odds changed.
I was half joking when I said that our two $20 wagers would move the line. This morning a friend asked me to place two more wagers for him. These were $30. Again, not big bets just more fun bets.
At the time Rio (also owned by Caesars) was 200-1. At 7pm on Tuesday night the line was down to 60-1 at Caesars properties. The line was 150-1 at MGM properties and at sportsbook.ag.
I’m not sure our hundred dollars of bets really moved the line, but it’s possible and this bet has already been more fun than any baseball bets I’ve made all year. At the same time, the Brewers were 500-1 to win the World Series on Sunday at Planet Hollywood and still there this morning at Rio.
With both teams winning last night, I have to imagine both the Phillies and Brewers will get continue to get money bet on them. The Brewers odds went from 500-1 to 250-1 to win it all and should continue to fall, while the Phillies will probably get less money and settle at 60-1.
I’m obsessed with this bet. If you follow me on twitter you know this. #GoPhils
