Bill Cosby was an avid sports bettor who squandered a huge selection of thousands of dollars betting on the Miami Dolphins in the eighties, based on Chris Colombo, a mafia scion and youngest son of previous Mob boss Joseph Colombo.
Bill Cosby lost $400,000 betting on the Miami Dolphins in the mid-eightes, during the height of their Cosby Show fame, according to Chris Colombo. The wagers were put by Cosby’s ‚fixer‘ Frank Scotti, he alleges.
We agree totally that this may not be the most allegation that is heinous at the once-beloved comedian recently, and we additionally concede Colombo, whom invested a year in prison for managing a multi-million-dollar illegal bookmaking operation, may not be the most trustworthy source in town.
Still, if anybody would find out about illegal bookmaking in New York in the eighties, it might be him. Colombo insists that, at the height of their Cosby Show fame, ‚Dr Huxtable‘ ended up being regularly betting $5,000 a game.
He additionally lost a $20,000 bet on the 1985 Super Bowl XIX, when the San Francisco 49ers thrashed the Dolphins 38-16, claims Colombo.
The Mafia man says that while he didn’t personally handle the wagers (because that would have been illegal!), he ‚had knowledge‘ of those and estimates Cosby lost around $400,000 over several years.
As Cosby might say, zip-zop-zoobity-bop!
