Favorite Bet of All-Time
Jacob's most memorable bet involved the Washington Capitals and The New York Islanders. Washington was down 4-1 at the end of the second period, but ended up winning the game by a score of 6-4 and cashing the bet.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
Jacob's worst beat happened in a game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. In this matchup, Jacob bet the under and everything looked great, that is until Ben Simmons of all people hit a three pointer with under 10 seconds left in the game to cash the over.
