I'm not sure how many folks have seen this story but some intriguing gambling news out of the fine state of Delaware. An unnamed gambler took part in Delaware's $5, 15-team parlay bet with a payoff of $100,000. The bettor correctly picked all 14 NFL games last week against the spread, but in order to get to 15 games he had to pick the 49ers-Eagles game tonight. He made the pick last week when the 49ers were at +3. This all happened before the Vick, Samuel, and McCoy injuries last week. The 49ers currently sit at -3 or -3.5 so he's in a good position.
Where this gets interesting is that the bettor could put in a bet in Las Vegas (because he can't go anywhere else) on the Eagles at +3 and be guaranteed to win at least $50,000. I realize this is probably a stupid question, but if you as a 49ers fan were in his place, would you lay the money down (assuming you could get it)? I'd imagine most everybody would say yes, but I wonder two things:
1) Would you bet against your own team?
2) Would you roll the dice on the full $100,000 by sitting on the 49ers at +3?
