Remember when Mark Wahlberg bet big money on the Cleveland Browns to win 6 games this season, and everyone laughed in his face??
Welp … ya should’ve listened to the man, ’cause the movie star is lookin’ like a damn genius now that Baker Mayfield and co. have secured 7 wins this season!!
Of course … when we spoke with Marky Mark back in July, the Orange and Brown were coming off an 0-16 season, and still had Hue Jackson as head coach at the time, so 6 wins seemed nearly impossible.
But, Wahlberg’s faith in the rookie QB paid off big … and although he never revealed just how much he wagered, you know he ain’t wasting his time with small bets.
At the time, Wahlberg told us he made 2 other big NFL bets — picking both the Eagles and Patriots to get back to the Super Bowl … and both of those bets are still alive!
So, what did we learn here?? Listen to Mark next year.
