Once is luck. Twice is a trend?

Professional poker player and big Vegas Golden Daniel Negreanu has correctly predicted the score of the past two Western Conference Final games. And he has the time stamps on Twitter to prove it.

Negreanu, the only two-time winner of the World Series of Poker Player of the Year award, has adopted the Golden Knights during their magical inaugural season. Originally born in Toronto, Negreanu now called Las Vegas home.

On Friday, the poker champion called his shot, correctly predicting the 3-2 final score roughly 90 minutes before game time.

Tweet from @RealKidPoker: Final score tonight:VEGAS 3WINNIPEG 2With a 31% chance of Overtime.

After his team made him look like a fortune teller, he took his well-earned victory lap.

Negreanu also correctly predicted the score of Game 3. Now, he didn't put it out there before the game started like with Game 4, but he did tweet it at 9:38 p.m. EST, while the game was still going on. 

Tweet from @RealKidPoker: Before it���s too late I have to share my pregame call on the score:VEGAS 4PEGGERS 2

That tweet was likely during the second period. When the second period of Game 3 ended, it was 3-1, Golden Knights.

Pretty impressive Mr. Negreanu, now send those lottery numbers our way.
