Barstool Sports President Dave Portnoy Talks New Riches, Super Bowl Bets – TMZ
Barstool Sports honcho Dave Portnoy feels like a million bucks (way more, actually) … which explains why he’s dishing free advice on prop bets for Super Bowl LIV.
Portnoy joined “TMZ Live” Thursday from Miami — site of Sunday’s Super Bowl — and dude had a million reasons to smile — more like 450 million reasons, actually, after selling a 36% stake of his media company worth $163 million in stock and cash. The sale bumped the valuation of Barstool’s digital media brand to a whopping $450 million.
El Presidente — as he’s referred to by Stoolies — tells us how he’s gloating in South Beach, and ya can’t blame him. He also gave us quick advice on this year’s prop bets … such as, the over/under on how long Demi Lovato‘s national anthem song will last and whether J Lo or Shakira — co-headliners of the halftime show — will have a wardrobe malfunction.
TBH, Portnoy’s answers make a ton of sense.
As for whether he’ll be at the big game, that’s unclear — seems Dave is still on the NFL’s bad side after he used a fake mustache to sneak by NFL security at last year’s Super Bowl.
