An investment group including Magic Johnson purchased the LA Dodgers for a jaw-dropping $2 billion.
Now that’s he into the franchise for a couple billion, do you think Magic Johnson, former LA Laker, will change the iconic Dodgers jerseys to purple and gold? If so, you can get 12:1 at SportsInteraction.com. And that’s just one of the interesting prop bets the sportsbook has rolled out to capitalize on Magic’s tenure as Dodgers owner.
You can also bet on whether the former basketball great will lead his new baseball team to sign a 7 foot tall pitcher. If they do, SportsInteraction will pay 12:1.
Over his career, Magic Johnson averaged 19 points a game. So, SIA has a prop that gives bettors the opportunity to profit if the Dodgers score more than 19 runs in any single game this year. The ‘yes’ pays +400 and you’ll have to lay $714 to win $100 if you think the Dodgers won’t score that many runs.
And, just for good measure, the oddsmakers at SIA have thrown a Kardashian into the Magic/Dodgers prop bet mix. If any Kardashian marries a LA Dodger in 2012, you can get 25:1.
A quick note: there is absolutely positively no chance that the Dodgers will be changing their uniforms. So that 12:1 won’t actually pay 12:1. You’ll just lose. Oh, and the same goes for the 7 foot tall pitcher bet.
