    Probably David vs Goliath. It was a rigged match though.

    Average Joe's vs Globo gym.
    Average Joe's were a 50 to 1 underdog.

    Leicester City and it's not even close. It was 5000 to 1, and it wasn't a fluke since they did it over the span of 38 games

    Yeah, Tyson Douglas was the biggest upset in sports betting history by a landslide, Holyfield was the second biggest oddly enough.

    In MMA Holm over Rousey wins by a landslide.

    Mcgregor/ Diaz was 4. 5/1 odds. That means that people in general expected Diaz to have about a 22% chance. Not exactly a huge upset. Hell I made $800 because I saw it coming. In a sport that's had 8/1 and 10/1s pull it off, that one is nowhere near.

    Yeah that's pretty fucking big, lol.

    When the Las Vegas Golden
    Knights made it too the Stanley Cup final in their first season 2 years ago also had 5000-1 odds or something ridiculous like that.

    I heard if they had managed to pull it off the payouts could have bankrupted the sports book, I'm sure that probably wasn't actually true though, lol.

    I don't even know what sport you refer to but THAT is the kind of upset that actually qualifies for the discussion
