So the dude is sitting at 24 and can bet the MNF game tomorrow for $1M...

Tomorrow ESPN's streak for cash MNF is simply a pick'em...if he picks Green Bay and Green Bay wins, he wins $1M...vice versa with the Saints...

Right now the Saints are -1...

So if he takes the Packers for the $1M he can put like $300K or something like that on the Saints with the points and he is virtually guaranteed with at least $300K...

If he doesn't have that kind of scratch, I guarantee he can find some sort of rich investor that could front him for a GUARANTEED return down at a Vegas sports book...

This dude would be CRAZY to not take this route...

Some dude lost his streak at 24 today...I hope he was smart enough to play off of Vegas to ensure himself some sort of monetary prize...

actually if I were him I'd take the Packers +105 money line in Vegas and bet the Saints on the streak...he needs to talk to an accountant and figure out how much he'd take away from the $1M after taxes and make a sound financial decision...

'twas a different guy that lost yesterday (with Carolina.....Denver wasn't on the board). a streak of 24 and one of 23 bit the bullet on that one.

That crap is harder than you would think. My longest streak is 11.
