Super Bowl safety bet wins man 50K

4:08 pm February 6, 2012, by David Markiewicz
Talk about a risky investment that paid off.
You know how you can bet on just about anything in the Super Bowl, not just the final score?
One man took advantage of the possibilities and earned $50,000 for it.
According to Shutdown Corner, Jona Rechnitz laid down $1,000 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, wagering that the first score in Sunday’s game would be a safety by the Giants.
The odds on the wager were 50:1 although, as anyone who follows football knows, the real chances of a safety being the first score in any game are much, much smaller than that.
So, Rechnitz’ move, which must have seemed like a neat way to blow a grand, suddenly turned into genius when New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was penalized for intentional grounding in his own end zone.
The play was ruled a safety for the Giants, giving them two points _ and giving Rechnitz 50 big ones

That is the type of player that has $100,000 in prop bets on the super Bowl.

I was at the game and the a giants fan next to me had about $12,000 in prop bets on the game. He had a dime on the coin flip and he lost.

Same guy. Apparently he's part of a group of 9 guys that go down to Vegas every SB to place bets. The groups apparently won 100K this year, most of it being profit from the Giants Safety to open the game. I read the other bets in their group they had that did well was a decent bet at 7-1 on a safety any time during the game. Also, the guy who threw 1000$ on the safefy bet only placed one other bet. 500$ on the Giants
