Dave Oancea is really good at gambling. “Vegas Dave,” as he’s known on social media, has cashed in some huge bets over the last few years, and last night he won almost $200K by betting $77 grand on Miesha Tate. He loves betting on the underdogs, and it’s paid off wonderfully for him over the last two UFC women’s bantamweight title fights. Miesha Tate took home UFC gold last night in a brilliant performance against Holly Holm and it made Oancea a little bit richer.
This comes just a few months after he won with a huge underdog bet on Holm over Ronda Rousey:
Miesha Tate was a +250 underdog, which means his $77K bet will come out to $192,500 in winnings. Considering Holm was (possibly) winning on the scorecards as time wound down, it must’ve been a stressful night that paid off in the end. Perhaps Vegas Dave bet on Diaz as well? Maybe. If he had, we probably would’ve heard about it by now.
So let this be a lesson to fight fans everywhere: odds don’t matter and styles make fights. UFC 196 was the night of the underdog and Vegas Dave is a few hundred grand richer for knowing it.
Now with that said, none of this comes close to Vegas Dave’s bets on the Kansas City Royals World Series win, where he made 26 bets and cashed out $2,457,200.
But still, not bad.
