FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adam Meyer, President and CEO of Real Money Sports, Inc., operator of sports handicapping website www.adamwins.com, the leading online sports picks provider, placed a $100,000 wager on the St. Louis Cardinals to win the World Series before the playoffs began. Meyer placed his wager with the M Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Meyer received 15-1 odds, which would provide him with a $1.5 million dollar payday should the Cardinals win.
While each wager is unique, Meyer has a track record of placing, and winning, large bets on major sporting events including the Super Bowl and Kentucky Derby. Meyer has documented wagers including a $300,000 wager on the Arizona Cardinals during the 2009 NFL playoffs and a $1 Million dollar wager on the Indianapolis Colts during the 2010 Super Bowl.
“I felt strongly about the way the Cardinals had ended the regular season,” said Adam Meyer. “Add the equation of the veterans in the lineup and ace pitcher, Chris Carpenter, there was definitely value at 15-1 odds."
Meyer is often referred to as the nation's top sports handicapper and "Handicapper to the Stars" by E! TV. Meyer is known as one of the industry's biggest gamblers, and is regularly featured on sports-talk radio stations across the country. Meyer separates himself from others in his industry by placing large wagers on the same games he advises to his clients who subscribe to his service at www.AdamWins.com.
Two wagers that have garnered a lot of attention for Meyer over the past year involved the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl win and Animal Kingdom's Kentucky Derby win. It has been reported that Meyer won upwards of $2.8 Million dollars based on a combination of wagers in which he had the Green Bay Packers picked to win the Super Bowl at 12-1 odds before the playoffs began. Meyer then placed a $25,000 wager on Animal Kingdom to win the Kentucky Derby at 26-1 odds netting him over $500,000.
“These bets are not about gambling, these wagers are more about a business opportunity and ability to hedge and have the possibility of making a substantial amount of money regardless of who wins the World Series,” said Adam Meyer about the way a professional sports handicapper treats his investments.
Meyer's ability to hedge and treat sports wagering as a business, has inspired thousands to follow this popular trend. As the world markets continue to become more unstable, many are looking toward sports wagering as a safer way to find a return on a short term investment than the stock markets. Meyer has proven that understanding where there is line value and knowing when and who to bet on, has become a very profitable formula for both Meyer and his thousands of clients.
