VIDEO – Tourists being by duped by the Mitch Trubisky MVP prop?

Las Vegas sports books set the bait, and Bears fans all over the country are snatching it up.

The Chicago Tribune wrote a story about the heavy action on Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky to win the 2019 NFL MVP.

Westgate has taken so many Trubisky tickets in the last two weeks that it moved the line to 50-1. The small wagers — between $20 and $100 — typically indicate bets made by fans, most likely Bears fans.

“I just want to know what kind of water you guys are drinking up there,” Superbook USA boss Jay Kornegay said. “Is everybody drinking, like, Soldier Field water or something? What the heck is going on up there?”

Trubisky represented 17% of the bets placed and 22% of the money wagered on the NFL MVP at Westgate, Kornegay said. The breakdown for the Bears winning the Super Bowl: 11% of the money and 10% of the tickets.

Added Kornegay: “It was right from the get-go there was a lot of interest in Trubisky at 200-1. That has really continued to a point where he is by far our biggest liability to win the MVP.
