Timing is everything.
Don’t take my word for it, just ask the guy who won $275,000 by betting on the St. Louis Cardinals to win the World Series at 999-1 odds when the Cards were 10.5 games back in the National League wild-card race.
There are other examples of big payouts for unlikely champions. The Minnesota Twins were 500-1 longshots during the season when they won it all in 1987. The St. Louis Rams won the Super Bowl in 2000 after being listed at 300-1 earlier that year.
We are too deep into this NFL regular season to find teams with such astronomical odds to win it all. There are a few underdogs, however, that have a realistic chance of bringing home the hardware for their cities—and for your wallet.
