With sports betting now being legal in NJ, I think I should come clean with something.
I am bad at gambling.
I have incorrectly used 9 Home Run challenges cards of Andrew McCutchen on days he failed to hit a homerun including all 3 games he played in his return to Pittsburgh.
The cards cost me $3 to $5 each so that was roughly $40 wasted.
Fortunately, there was still hope. I negotiated and over paid to get one of only 7 of the cards that people correctly guessed when Cutch hit one of his three homers in April.
The seller provided the card in the Topps Now packaging.
So after having a feeling that Cutch would hit a HR in his last 3 games played and missing on each one, what do you think happened yesterday?
