Two Nebraska Residents Convert $3K Into Nearly $1.5 Million

Two Nebraska residents teamed up to participate in this season's Westgate Super Contest, turning $3,000 into nearly $1.5 million.

Eric Jensen, 38, and Matt Kucera, 36, beat out a record 3,328 entries to win the long established sports handicapping contest.

“It’s still sinking in,” Jensen said. “It doesn’t seem real.”

From the Omaha World Herald:

Jensen and Kucera called their team It Ain’t Breezy, an ironic reference to the relentless wind that blows in their native central Nebraska, as well as a tribute to Drew Brees, the record-setting New Orleans Saints quarterback. Collaborating every Friday night after putting their kids to bed, they racked up a record of 58-25-2 against the spread: just a hair under 70%.

The pair went 3-2 last weekend to wrap up the Westgate title. Fittingly, it was Brees and the Saints who clinched it for them. Brees passed for 253 yards and threw three touchdown passes in a 42-10 thrashing of the Carolina Panthers. The Saints, 13-point favorites, easily beat a spread.

“We felt really good about the Saints,” Jensen said. “That game is what clinched it.”
