No hedge? No problem! Vegas bettor wins $100,000 on the St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup victory

Jordan Binnington showed nerves of steal throughout the Stanley Cup Final, but he’s no match for Scott Berry.

Berry made a $400 bet on the St. Blues to win the Cup at 250-to-1 odds. The Blues ripped Boston 4-1 in Game 7 at the TD Garden.

He was offered money through the Finals to cash in.

Highest bids on @PropSwap for Blues bettor Scott Berry’s $100K ticket:
Pre Gm 1: $41,000 (Blues lose Gm 1)
Pre Gm 2: $28,000 (win Gm 2)
Pre Gm 3: $48,000 (lose Gm 3)
Pre Gm 5: $38,615 (win Gm 5)
Pre Gm 6: $75K (lose Gm 6)
Current: $36,500

Berry turned down the case payout at every turn.

“I feel like I’m in this with the team, and I don’t want to lay any of it off,” Berry told ESPN this week. “I put the bet down in January for $400 to win $100,000. That was the bet. … I’m very superstitious and don’t want to ruin any juju.”

And now he’s 100k richer for it.

In early January, the Blues had the second worst record in the NHL.
