After Argentine signed for Inter Miami, a fan placed a 450-1 wager on the outcome, and he stands to gain a staggering $28,000, but everyone is advising him to “cash out.”
The supporter, Brad, posted a screenshot of a wager he placed for Messi to win the Golden Boot and Inter Miami to win the Leagues Cup in the 2023 MLS season. The Argentine and his team have advanced to the latter’s quarterfinal, where they will face Charlotte. Mid-August marks the start of the MLS season. Despite the allure of the enormous amount, the supporter can choose to ‘cash out’ immediately and receive $771 (£605), as several Twitter users are advising him to do. Should both occur, he may potentially make a staggering $28,000 (£22k) if he continues on his current track.
Messi has captivated America and has already scored seven goals in four games of the League Cup, therefore it’s not impossible for him to win the golden boot in his debut season in MLS.
