If you could turn back time, you could have made $1M on the Indians' streak
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
Fans of the Cleveland Indians continue to celebrate after Wednesday’s American League record-setting 21st straight victory.
What if one of those fans was also clairvoyant enough to wager $100 on Cleveland on the first day of the Indians’ winning streak — Aug. 24 — and let the winnings ride?
That initial $100 would be worth $1,050,349 after Wednesday’s 5-3 decision over the Detroit Tigers, according to Jay Kornegay, vice president of Race & Sports Operations at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
In order to win the $1 million-plus, the bettor would have placed $800,266 on the Indians (-320 on the money line).
Kornegay adds that no one, to his knowledge, has 21-game parlay ticket tied to the Indians’ streak.
