Eagles fan hilariously cashes in betting on Buccaneers

All is fair in love and war — and gambling. And in the mind of a sports bettor, even betting against your own team can be worthwhile if you find a profitable enough angle to attack.



That’s what this NFL bettor chose to do when he faded his own team on “Monday Night Football” as the Eagles got roasted by the Buccaneers in the playoffs.





The individual wagered $250 on the home underdog -13.5 at +750 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook, a far cry from the closing line of Eagles laying three three points. When you spend every Sunday for several years watching one team, it is fair to say that no one knows that team better.

This bettor was that person. The Eagles were a disaster for most of the second half of the regular season, and that carried over into a wild card weekend loss to the Buccaneers.



Tackling was the main source of pain Monday for Philadelphia as its secondary could not make solid form tackles and stop Buccaneers ball carriers from accumulating more yardage.





Buccaneers wide receiver Trey Palmer made the Eagles’ secondary look foolish as he broke multiple tackles for a 56-yard touchdown that gave the Bucs a 25-9 lead in the third quarter. This bettor’s fanhood was put to good use Monday night, as the Buccaneers moneyline (+125) received only 31 percent of the wagers on BetMGM Sportsbook.

Now all eyes move towards Nick Sirianni, as this bettor’s prediction may have just prefaced the catalyst of a new reign for the Eagles. Speculation has been rampant that Sirianni has coached his last game in Philadelphia with ex-Patriots legendary coach Bill Belichick potentially hot on the trail.
