Does anyone remember a post made by someone back in early December claiming he made a $20 bet that the Giants would get to the SB and win it all? If I remember correctly, he claimed that he recieved 2000 to 1 odds due to their record at the time.

If that was a legit bet.....wow, he has a good chance of collecting 40K...right?

He lied. Giants never ever got 2,000 to 1 odds at any point in the season.

80-1 odds was the highest.

When I read that post my first impression was that either he was lying or that who ever he put that bet in with was probably not going to pay it off.
If he wasn't lying I hope he gets the payoff

$20 with 80-1 odds is still a great deal..... $1600! I wish I could have done that.

2000 - 1 odds is something like picking the Broncos to win the SB at 1-4 record with Tebow.

If you could get paid $40,000 from a $20 bet in a 12 team tournament, EVERYONE would make that bet.

The most he'll get we'll be $400-$500

Actually 100-1 was the highest.

I wonder when the odds were the best.... Was it after the 4 straight losses (6-6 record) or after the skins loss (7-7 record)? I am guessing after 4 straight losses where the Giants were looking so terrible. The OP said the bet was made in early december so it was after the Giants lost to the Packers.

If the bettor got those 100-1 odds, then he would receive $2,000 if the Giants won. Maybe the OP is confusing "winning $2000" with "2000-1" odds.

They were at +2000 which is 20-1 odds.

Yea. They were +2000 when the season opened up but the odds change throughout the season and really jumped to 80-1 or 100-1. The OP said the bet was made in december so he is gonna get much better odds than 20-1. He is looking at 80-1 or 100-1 odds.

90-1 is worse than the Bengals territory. Giants were never considered to be a bad team. They were 20-1 odds to win the Super Bowl before the season started.

Yes but the OP was confusing +2000 with 2000-1 odds.

But he said the bet was made in early December and not before the season started ("record at the time".... In early December (after 4 straight losses), we know the odds were ridiculously high. I read it was high as 80-1 odds but another poster said it was 100-1 odds. Pretty much. If the bet was made before the season, he has 20-1 odds or +2000 ($400)..... If he made the bet after 4 straight losses in early december, he is going to get 80-1 or 100-1 odds on that $20 bet...... $1600-2000.

Good money.

I thought a guy made a bet before the season even started and got some really high odds. If remember he was from across the pond.

Over there, they'll bet on coach-roaches running up the wall. (I don't mean that in a bad way, other then the bet on everytihng).

The odds are gonna be the same everywhere or with little difference. It would make no sense to have 80-1 in United States in Dec. and then have them 2000-1 in England. Giants weren't even under .500 at the time. Don't believe everything you read.

"And I made a 10,000-1 odd bet in china for the Giants."

Like others have said, the highest odds this season on the NYG futures bet to win SB was right after the 2nd Redskins loss (100:1)

anyone who is saying "2000:1" odds is just a liar..even TERRIBLE teams who have no shot at winning the SB are only like 250:1

In August I bet 20 on the Giants at 20 to 1 and 20 on the NY Rangers at 25 to 1 while I was in Vegas.

Actually the highest odds were 160:1 at Betfair. No big amount matched at that amount but still the highest odds.

They could be playing a Pop Warner team and Vegas ain't gonna put out any odds like that...
