I will assume the bettor never thought he would hit 15 in a row and just threw the Lions in on a whim.
Only to see Jared Goff and the Lions imploded in the second half.
Still a semi-happy ending to this story.
Entering Monday Night Football, one bettor was on the precipice of turning $25 into $726,959 at BetMGM via a 16-leg NFL parlay.
All this bettor needed was the Detroit Lions to win outright as 11.5-point underdogs on the road against the Green Bay Packers. To that point in Week 2, this bettor had accurately picked the 15 other NFL games on the moneyline.
BetMGM said Wednesday morning that the bettor was able to cash out for $133,000 (pre-tax, of course).
There’s another layer to this, too. The 16-team parlay was actually made using a free $25 promotional bet. Ordinarily, BetMGM does not provide a cash-out option for free bets. This time, though, the company made an exception “due to the amazing picks and unlikely odds.”
Good for him.
$25 to make $133k isn’t too bad.
