There’s a truly bizarre story out of Kansas City. Xavier Babudar is better known in those parts by his Twitter and Instagram handle @ChiefsAholic. He’s the super fan of the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs who attends games garbed out in Chiefs gear while wearing a wolf’s costume. However, he may be exchanging that outfit not for sheep’s clothing, but rather for an orange jumpsuit.
On December 16, Babudar was arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma and charged with armed robbery. The accusations against Babudar include robbing a Tulsa Teachers Credit Union. Tulsa police officers arrested Babudar while he was attempting to escape with a significant amount of cash. An eyewitness inside the bank called the police.
Babudar is also charged with wearing a mask in the commission of a felony, possession of a firearm and threatening a violent act.
He’s not posted anything on his social media accounts since Dec. 16. Chiefs fans began wondering whether bank robbery is how Babudar has been funding his trips following the Chiefs around the NFL in recent seasons.
Evidently, Babudar has another form of income to supplement his journeys. That would be sports betting.
Sleuthing of Babudar’s social media feeds – which are so popular, by that way, that he’s trademarked his handle – unearthed several massive wagers that he’s played. Many of them were multi-leg parlays and most of the wagers are related to the Chiefs.
Recently, Babudar wagered $200 on an exact score wager between the Bengals and Chiefs. Had it cashed (it didn’t) he’d have won $58,200. He did win $19,000 off a $1000 wager and +1800 odds on Jody Forston to score a touchdown for the Chiefs against Tampa Bay in October.
Babudar is holding a $5,000 bet on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl that would pay $55,000. He also bet $5,000 on KC quarterback Patrick Mahomes to win the NFL MVP this season. That would bring a payday of $45,000. Babudar is going to need that money. His bail is set at $200,000.
