Would you bet on your spouse

In Liverpool in the UK recently, where many US contestants also took part, Rory Mcllroy claimed the Golf British Open Championship. Now that comes with an incredible prize pool as well as a large number of new sponsorship deals as well as a pay rise from the existing sponsors wanting to keep their star on board with their brand.
Rory’s father Gerry also netted a fortune after he backed his son to win the tournament; a bet that netted him a cool £200,000. That bet was actually placed a decade prior to his some taking part in the contest! Imagine if any of fanatic sports betting lovers also had the foresight to place such a bet!

If you were the father of David Beckham, Tiger Woods or the Williams sisters, you would also be splashing out on dollar bets with confidence – especially when they were just developing into stars in their respective sports – what a time to lay bet that one of the Williams sisters would eventually circuit grand slam wins. Back in the day they odds would have been 200-1 or more!

In Rory’s father’s case, he bet at odds as high as 500 to 1, so not a good weekend for that bookmaker.

Another British father won a huge windfall when he wagered on his son Ryan Tunnicliffe debuting for the soccer giant of the UK once owned by US’s Gillette family. Ryan’s dad Mick took a 100 to 1 risk on this one and came out with £10,000; although his son probably earnt that in half a week as a salary at that time, we are sure dad was over the moon.
Even in the stables around the world the bookies and horse racing gamblers are looking out in the stables for the next new fantastic runner. The Jessica Harrington’s Moscow Flyer is probably one of the favourite horses of old – literally this horse was odds on favourite nearly every race after he came flying out the traps from the beginning of his career to net win after win with three Cheltenham Festival wins and two wins at the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

There was a huge number of in the know followers of this horse, and they knew he was special. Luckily for the bookmakers, who got it wrong originally, the knowledge of a few that backed this horse was not common knowledge amongst the industry and followers or that horse could have sent several bookmakers bust!
