A good friend of mind is contemplating a career change and is spending time this week updating her resume so she's prepared the second an opportunity presents itself.
I think I may have just found her a way to make a year's salary with just a single NFL bet.
According to the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the New York Jets are a historic long shot to win Super Bowl 52 at an astronomical 1000-1 odds. That means my friend could take home $100,000 on just a $100 bet or $1 million if she plunks down a grand.
To give you some perspective, in 2016 the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers had the longest odds at the start of the season to win The Big Game at 200-1. The Jets' 1000-1 odds are believed to be the biggest in NFL history according to Vegas oddsmakers.
According to this same ESPN article, New York is so awful they could be a 10-point underdog in week 5 to the Browns of all teams.
