The Cleveland Indians’ 22-game win streak is the most impressive in Major League Baseball history, and it could’ve made you a multi-millionaire if you caught it early.
ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell shared a scenario in which bettors could have turned $100 into $2.7 million with a let-it-ride strategy.
That means if someone put $100 on the Indians for their first win, which came against the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 24, and rolled their winnings over to the next game every time, they would have received 27,000 times that in return.
Of course, it’s hard to imagine anyone actually did this because that would have meant betting $1 million on a regular-season game at one point. But if there is someone out there hanging on to the Indians’ streak, he or she could turn the winnings into $3.9 million if Cleveland takes down the Kansas City Royals on Friday night.
