The mystery bettor who beat Las Vegas sportsbooks out of millions of dollars on the 2017 World Series and more than $10 million in Super Bowl LII appears to be back in action on Super Bowl LIII.
Lem Banker picked the winner against the spread in 20 of the first 23 Super Bowls in newspapers across the nation, including the Review-Journal. From 1973 to 1985, he picked 13 straight winners in the game.
My Super Bowl betting strategy is simple: I’m picking the Patriots to win a tight game, but I’m going to try for a “middle” by using the Rams in a 7-point teaser.
Will the Patriots or Rams score in the first 5½ minutes? The no on this prop is 8-0 in New England’s eight previous Super Bowls, with four of them featuring scoreless first quarters.
