CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - One bettor had a lot of confidence in the Cleveland Browns heading into the team’s postseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to the official Twitter account BetMGM, someone wagered $500,000 on the Cleveland Browns shortly before game time to cover the 5.5-point spread on Sunday night.

Well, the Browns won outright over the Steelers 48-37 and someone took home a huge payout.

Unfortunately, someone also placed a $500,000 bet on Ohio State University in the national championship game on Monday against the University of Alabama.

That bet didn’t play out in favor.
