Las Vegas, Nevada — After going 6-0 in the first 6 games of the world series rumors are flying around the Las Vegas strip trying to verify that legend Jon Price is the man behind the $14 million dollar wager on game 7 of the World Series. Price is notorious for having runners and others place wagers as part of his wagering syndicate that has been featured in Gambling911, Yahoo Finance, Huffington Post, and Forbes magazine.
Earlier in the week RJ Bell a sports analyst from Las Vegas who goes by @RJinVegas on Twitter revealed Price’s wagers to the public. He hinted that it was being placed by a young European male. Rumors quickly in and around betting circles pointed fingers back to Jon Price who is known as a reclusive gambler who has some of the biggest betting connections next to Billy Walters.
The wagers were strategically placed around the Las Vegas strip at different sportsbooks because no single sportsbook would take that much action and different odds were available at different books giving the sharp bettor an advantage. This also makes Game 7 of the world series is on pace to be the highest wagered on game 7 in history for Las Vegas sportsbooks.
When reached out to for comment to Sports Information Traders through their website to verify Jon Price’s action on game 7 we were told that they do not provide comments on any of Prices wagers or betting strategies.
