Joe Flacco's Dad Pondering Betting On Son's MVP Odds

Posted Aug 5, 2014

Joe Flacco gave his reaction to having the same 100:1 odds as rookie Johnny Manziel winning MVP.


Joe Flacco’s father could take a page out of the McIlroy sportsbook.

Professional golfer Rory McIlroy won the British Open in July, making his dad a big winner as well. Ten years prior, his dad and two friends bet $683 on McIlroy to win the British Open by the age of 25 at 500-1 odds. The payout was $180,000.

Before the whole McIlroy story became public, Flacco’s dad, Stephen, thought it would be a good bet to put down some greenbacks on his own son.

Flacco was given 100-1 odds on winning the league’s MVP honor for the 2014 season – the same odds as Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

In a one-on-one interview, Flacco gave his reaction to those odds.

“It was funny,” he said Monday. “Even before McElroy won the British, my dad was wondering if he should go place a couple bucks on it. It does pay pretty well.”

So has Stephen gone and done it yet?

“No. I don’t know if he will or not though,” Flacco joked.

“I don’t really pay too much attention to that stuff. I obviously haven’t put up a ton of numbers statistically, so it is what it is. But it is a nice little payout if someone wants to put a couple bucks on it.”

Flacco didn’t comment on the fact that Manziel has the same odds as him, and didn’t seem to be offended at all.

Back in September, when Manziel was still at Texas A&M, Flacco said he was becoming a big fan of Manziel. Now the two will face each other twice a year in the AFC North.

“Being hated is not a bad thing,” Flacco said in September. “I don’t know if I’d be too popular for this, but I don’t really know how I felt about Johnny Manziel. I feel like everybody now hates him [but] he’s quickly becoming my favorite player in college football.”
