LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The St. Louis Blues started off January in last place, not many people thought they'd make the playoffs let alone win the Stanley Cup.
One St. Louis Blues fan, Scott Berry went with his gut instinct this past January as he placed a $400 bet at the Paris Las Vegas sports book on the Blues to win the 2019 Stanley Cup, even at their 250-1 odds and ranking last in the league.
His gut instinct proved right as the Blues won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
On June 18, Berry made a special return trip to the Paris Las Vegas sports book to collect his winnings of $100,400.
To sweeten the deal, Berry also encouraged fellow St. Louis friend, Brandon Chapel, to place the same bet.
Chapel followed his friend's conviction and support of the Blues and placed a $200 bet.
Chapel joined Berry in collecting his winnings, who also had a generous amount of $50,200 to collect.
