Since, last night the Houston Astros lost against the Detroit Tigers, here is an ode to my favorite upsets in sports book history.
3. ) In 1999, the St. Louis Rams were 300-1 odds to win the Superbowl.
For the most part of the 1990’s, the Rams were REALLY bad. They had the biggest longshot to win the super bowl by far. The 300-1 odds were set at preseason and low and behold, they win the WHOLE thing!
2.) Stanford Vs USC 2007
This game was dubbed “The BIGGEST upset EVER!” Stanford was an underdog by 41 points!!
Spoiler alert** Stanford wins in the final minute 24-23
1.) 50-1 Odds on Mine that bird Kentucky Derby 2009
