Insane four-sport championship bet could pay out $165K if Sixers reach NBA title

With pro sports set to return in July, the U.S.’s burgeoning sports betting industry can only hope fans return to placing bets as often as they did in early 2020.

If one very bold fan is any indication, the industry is still going to see the kind of devil-may-care attitudes that make sports betting fun for so many. 

Nick Swart, a sports fan with a dream, decided to bet on not just one, but all four (!) major North American sports leagues’ championships, placing a truly eye-watering gamble on FanDuel that hinges on the 76ers, of all teams, reaching the title.

It’s a long (long, long, long) shot… and yet I kind of like the picks.

Here’s a look at the monumental wager:

That’s a lot of money, and the outcomes don’t seem too crazy.

Let’s go one by one real quick.

Blame NASCAR. Blame the media. Blame America. Just don’t blame Bubba Wallace.

This wasn’t Bubba’s fault.

Blame NASCAR. Blame media outlets. Blame America.

But don’t blame Bubba Wallace. He’s the only person here who isn’t at fault after three unforgettable days at Talladega that serve as a reminder of not only the systemic racism that plagues our nation but conclusions it can lead us to.

Around 11 p.m. Sunday, seven hours after the GEICO 500 was postponed due to inclement weather and even longer after the noose was discovered in Wallace’s No. 43 car’s garage stall, NASCAR released the following statement:

“Late this afternoon, NASCAR was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the 43 team. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough how seriously we take this heinous act.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. spent his whole life chasing meaningful rewards.

He waited longingly for a pat on the back from his famous father, worked diligently to generate compliments from crew members and other drivers and reveled in the roar of his fans — those he inherited from his father and the new ones he brought along for the ride.

NASCAR’s longtime fan favorite received the sport’s biggest honor Tuesday, being selected to join his father in the series’ Hall of Fame. Earnhardt will be inducted in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with the late Mike Stefanik and 87-year-old Red Farmer, who is planning to race on Talladega’s dirt track this weekend. Ralph Seagraves was named the Landmark Award winner for his contributions to the sport.

Despite never winning a series championship, Earnhardt still received 76% of the votes cast on the modern era ballot.

“Just talking about it, it’s really emotional
