Three years after the events of time-traveling 1985 classic “Back to the Future Part II” take place, we might be seeing the film’s plot play out in real life.

Because in the last two major championships in professional American team sports, one anonymous gambler has nailed an insane streak of huge bets.

Back during the World Series, an individual who’d come to be known as “Bettor X” picked the first six games correctly, winning $14 million on his “let it ride” bets before pulling out, opting not to risk such a sum on Game 7.

According to ESPN, Bettor X returned to take Vegas’ money by wagering on the Super Bowl. The individual reportedly made the monstrous, famous $3 million money-line bet on the Philadelphia Eagles at the MGM, as well as one of the $1 million bets at William Hill. Bettor X also placed wagers at CG Technology, the Wynn, and South Point, and came away with at least $6 million, and probably more.


“He’s one of the guys who was floating around betting all that money on the World Series,” veteran Las Vegas bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, now of the South Point, told the Associated Press. “I don’t think he lost a bet then. We’ll see how he does now.”

“Yeah, I’ve got him, too,” Avello said to ESPN, regarding the return of the World Series bettor.

ESPN spoke to multiple bookmakers who have taken Bettor X’s action and were scratching their heads Monday, trying to figure out he has an edge or if it’s all just a run of luck.

No, not luck. Just a sports almanac from the future.
