Panthers vs. 49ers: One fan makes insane bet on San Francisco

Mark Kolbe

The Carolina Panthers six-point underdogs this weekend, but one 49ers fan is betting the house.

Sports betting is a dangerous business. The NFL is so volatile that from one week to the next there's no telling what will happen. If you put a prop bet on Nick Foles throwing seven touchdowns, then kudos -- but the majority of people are let down, which is why there's still a business. One 49ers fan is so confident in his team that he bet $65,430 on a two-game parlay, involving a 49ers win.

The fan says his plan will be to move to the Bay area and get a seat license when the 49ers open their own stadium. He also acknowledged that "it's just about everything I have."

I'm all for confidence, but this is beyond insanity. Perhaps he hasn't read the memo on the Panthers, not the story of their inconsistency or current win streak, but their betting trends. Carolina is 5-1 against the spread in its last six games, and 8-3 on the road against the spread in its last 11.

I'd say good luck to this anonymous Reddit user, but any kind of luck would mean a Panthers' loss. There is no way to hope he keeps his money and get a Carolina victory, so c'est la vie.
