Meet The Man Who Made $2.5 Million Off The World Series

October 24, 2016

His name is "Vegas" Dave Oancea (of course) and he started his career as a professional gambler by taking out a $10,000 student loan, going straight to Vegas, and putting it all on red. This is not a great "go to college" story to tell the youth of America.

Dave says, "It hit, and I turned the 10 grand into 20. I quit school the next day. Vegas loves losers but hates winners."

In 2015, he won $2.5 million after betting $140,000 on the Kansas City Royals to win the World Series - He placed his bet a week into the season.

His World Series pick this year was the Texas Rangers. They obviously won't win it but don't cry for Dave, he won a million bucks on a $300,000 bet that they would win their division.
