Jake Paul loses £220k on first game of new NFL season with outrageous bet

Jake Paul lost £220,000 on the first game of the new NFL season last week after placing an outrageous bet.

The YouTuber turned boxer has built a reputation for his high stakes sports bets in recent months, including an £800,000 wager with Eddie Hearn on the outcome of the lightweight world title bout between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano in April. He has now turned his attention to the NFL, though, by making a bet with his friend and professional gambler Marco Parlay.

Paul bet Parlay £220,000 that the opening play of the game between the LA Rams and the Buffalo Bills last Thursday would be a run.

However, the Bills instead passed on the first play, costing Paul an outrageous amount, much to his frustration. The 25-year-old shared his reaction to losing the bet on the latest episode of his BS with Jake Paul show.

In a clip from the segment, he explained: "Look some things don't always go to plan, I will be back and Marco I challenge you to a double or nothing bet.

"Buccaneers vs Cowboys, $500,000 on the opening play, let's make the bet again or nothing. Even though I lost around $250,000 I have the Bills defence on my fantasy team and they scored me 18 points so things aren't too bad."

Paul is currently preparing to return to the ring next month, with a fight against former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona on October 29.

Who will win the fight between Jake Paul and Anderson Silva? Let us know in the comments section below.

It will be his first bout since December last year after he saw scheduled fights with Tommy Fury and Hasim Rahman Jr fell through in recent months.

Despite currently being 5-0 as a professional, Paul has hinted at a switch to the NFL in the future, revealing, via the Mirror: "Right now obviously boxing is the focus and it takes up so much time, but I would love to act and I have some ideas for some movies and stuff like that.

"I like action comedy. That's always my favourite. And that's like the roles I sort of see myself playing after boxing. I'm either going to go to the NFL or, or become an actor, I'm still deciding, but those are my to-do list.

“Slot receiver I would play, I’ve got hands. If you get me some of those sticky Nike gloves, I’ll be up in there scoring touchdowns and you’re going to see me on SportsCenter’s highlight reel.”
