Charles Barkley Admits To Losing $100,000 On The Falcons Super Bowl Choke Job

During "Inside The NBA" on Thursday night, Charles Barkley went off on the 'coward' Lakers for scapegoating Frank Vogel and Russell Westbrook

Charles Barkley can afford to throw his money around, and it seems like he’s no stranger to taking a big loss. Sir Charles went on the Dan Patrick show today and somewhere in the babbling nonsense coming out of his mouth was this story about his experience betting on Super Bowl LI.

The Falcons were +3.5 or +4 in that game (depending on what book you were using). It’s unclear if Charles had the moneyline or the spread. Either way, terrible beat. As everyone knows the Falcons blew a 28-3 lead in that game. The Patriots scored a TD in overtime to screw over many bettors around the country.

Barkley had admitted to having a bit of a gambling problem in the past. In 2007, Charles Barkley told the Associated Press, ““It’s a stupid, bad habit. I have a problem, but the problem is when you can’t afford it. I can afford to gamble. I didn’t kill myself when I lost two and half million dollars. I like to gamble and I’m not going to quit.”

That makes two of us, Charles.

Barkley’s bettor’s mentality is probably the most relatable thing about him. If only we all had his fortune to throw around on our locks of the day.
