BBY 6 Month Chart

Looks like a bullish bet on the earnings, counting on an early pop. The vol will fade fast tommorrow and those 23 puts will probably expire worthless (unless it really tanks). The trader is trying to lower their 28 Call cost thinking they have little risk under 23 and a IV advantage before earnings.
