A popular internet meme has prodded a large number of sports bettors to predict the exact score outcome of this Sunday’s Super Bowl. That’s just 2023 for you.
The meme was born during a podcast with former NFL running back Arian Foster, who joked that the league had a script on how the season would play out before it even began. A now-suspended Twitter account posted a picture of the supposed script, which said that the Philadelphia Eagles would beat the Kansas City Chiefs 37-34.
As harmless as the image may have been, a final score of 37-34 is now the most popular bet in exact score outcomes on BetMGM. Other sportsbooks are also likely feeling the burn of what started as a pure joke.
