Eric R. cashed in on the St. Louis Blues’ Stanley Cup win!
The St. Louis Blues are Stanley Cup champions – and Eric R. of Vancouver has cashed in on a flurry of futures bets made four months ago.
The Blues went from worst to first in the National Hockey League this year. Back on Jan. 3, they were at the bottom of the overall standings and long shots to win the Stanley Cup this spring.
But Eric noticed the Blues turning their season around in early February and decided to place five separate wagers, spread out over two weeks, on St. Louis to win the Stanley Cup.
In total, Eric wagered $80 combined over his five separate Stanley Cup outright bets. The Blues hoisted the Stanley Cup – in Boston – following a Game 7 victory over the Bruins on Wednesday.
The wait was worth it. Eric finally cashed in on his bets, winning a total of $4,700.
On Feb. 8, when Eric placed a $20 wager on the Blues to win it all, St. Louis had odds of 70.00 at PlayNow.com to claim the Stanley Cup – what would eventually become the first in franchise history. In fact, three of his wagers on St. Louis came when the Blues’ outright odds were 70.00.
The largest win out of his five bets was $1,750.00 on a $25 wager.
At the time, the Blues had just fired off four straight wins. Between Feb. 1 and Feb. 19, the Blues went on a 10-game winning streak, beginning their ascent into the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
Their odds shifted, as well, moving to 40.00 at PlayNow.com. Eric made a pair of outright wagers on the Blues on Feb. 17, at the height of their winning streak.
Four months later, their climb to the top of the mountain would be complete with a Stanley Cup, and Eric’s wait on five different wagers finally over with one emphatic win.
The 2019-20 Stanley Cup outright betting is now available at PlayNow.com. The Tampa Bay Lightning are the current favourites with odds of 8.00, followed by the Toronto Maple Leafs (10.00); Boston Bruins (11.00); Vegas Golden Knights (11.00); Colorado Avalanche (12.00); and defending champion Blues (14.00).
