Fan turns down offers for betting slip worth $100K if Blues win Stanley Cup

Fan turns down offers for betting slip worth $100K if Blues win Stanley Cup A Missouri man who'll take home $100,000 if the Blues win the championship says he's not interested in selling his potentially lucrative betting slip. 

The St. Louis Blues have never hoisted Lord Stanley 's Cup in their 52-year history, but that didn't stop fan Scott Berry from putting a good amount of money According to ESPN.com's Ben Fawkes, Berry was in Las Vegas in January when he decided to make a couple of wagers at a Caesars sportsbook.

Blues fan is a Stanley Cup away from turning $ 400 into $ 100 K in unlikely bet . A Blues fan was on a business trip in Las Vegas when he noticed the Blues were a 250-1 longshot But now that the Blues have reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1970, Berry suddenly has a hot ticket.

The happiest non-member of the St. Louis Blues over the team’s first Stanley Cup championship in franchise history might very well be Scott Berry.

Berry is a Blues fan who wagered $400 on the Blues to win the Stanley Cup back in January when the team had 250:1 odds to win it all. Thanks to the long odds, that $400 turned into $100,000 when the Blues beat the Boston Bruins in Game 7.

Berry could have guaranteed himself a profit by selling his betting ticket and hedging by also wagering on the Bruins to win it all. Instead, he refused to hedge because he was more concerned with sticking behind his Blues.

“I feel like I’m in this with the team, and I don’t want to lay any of it off,” Berry told ESPN this week. “I put the bet down in January for $400 to win $100,000. That was the bet. … I’m very superstitious and don’t want to ruin any juju.”

Berry’s faith in his team paid off. They took a 3-2 series lead, lost at home in Game 6, and then won on the road in Game 7.
