The oddsmakers over at the MyBookie Casino might be scared to leave up their MLB futures while games are being played throughout the day, but they certainly can predict player movements sometimes. Well, three times in the last few weeks to be exact, but who’s counting?
They finished off the trifecta today when it was announced that the Chicago Bears had successfully traded for Khalil Mack, who they had put as a favorite to land him at +300 on August 17th – two weeks before the actual trade. That same day they put up the general prop wager of “Will the Raiders trade Mack before November 1st” with a “Yes” paying -500, and the “No” paying +350, so clearly these guys know what they’re talking about. Sometimes.
The Head Bookmaker at MB went on a Twitter rampage of re-tweets and “I-told-ya-so’s” for the better part of the day once the news had been released, rubbing his insider knowledge in the faces of all who had doubted him. The cherry on top of their sundae was the fact that they had also posted the over/under on Mack’s new contract, which turned out to be exactly on the nose at $90,000,000, which is a new NFL record. Unbelievable.
This follows two other predictions about pro player movements that MyBookie made this summer which also came true. First they made the Toronto Raptors the solid favorites to land Kawhi Leonard when it was obvious that the Spurs were going to trade him. Many on social media chastised the sportsbook for their lines at the time, but MyBookie got the last laugh when Leonard was shipped north of the border shortly after.
A few weeks before this they had put the Los Angeles Lakers at -5000 to land Lebron James in the offseason, again receiving the jeers of the Twitterverse who thought that the line was way off and over-inflated. At the time, many thought that Lebron would stay in the East with the Celtics or Sixers, or even stay on with the Cavs. Well, we all know how things ended up and that’s another check in MB’s win column – but how long can their “Nostradamus-esque” streak of predictions last?
