Proudly hailing from St. Louis, Scott Berry went with his gut instinct this past January as he placed a $400 bet at the Paris Las Vegas sportsbook on the St. Louis Blues to win the 2019 Stanley Cup, even at their current 250-1 odds and ranking last in the league. Fast forward to Tuesday, June 18, Berry made a special return trip to the Paris Las Vegas sportsbook to collect his winnings of $100,400 (Photo credit: Bryan Steffy / Paris Las Vegas).

To sweeten the deal, Berry also encouraged fellow St. Louis friend, Brandon Chapel, to place the same bet. Chapel followed Berry’s conviction and support of the Blues and placed a $200 wager. Joining Berry in collecting his winnings was Chapel, who also had a generous amount of $50,200 to collect.
This was the first Stanley Cup in the franchise’s 52-year existence. Both Berry and Chapel are extremely excited with the outcome, but more so excited and proud of their St. Louis Blues.
