One man is potentially 40 minutes away from turning $25 thousand into $1 million in less than one month’s time. All that needs to happen is for Michigan to upset Villanova in the NCAA men’s basketball National Championship Game.
Prior to the tournament, Derek Stevens placed a $25 thousand bet at 40-1 on the Wolverines to win it all.
Today could be the day I make @DerekJStevens $1M richer. If @umichbball beats @NovaMBB in the #FinalFour2018 match up – his $25K bet at my @GoldenNuggetLV is a $1M winner! #whatwasithinking #GoNova pic.twitter.com/43oIqIjBZ6

We can confidently say that this man who works in the Fitbit marketing department will not be the only person pulling for the maize and blue on Monday.
Villanova is favored to beat Michigan. But the Wildcats have been on the right side of one of the greatest upsets in championship game history. It’s certainly possible for them to be on the wrong side of an upset, as well.
