Huge bet with big payouts needs Lions to win
Most sports bettors realize that parlay betting is not the smartest way to do business. However, many continue to bet them because of the potential for a big payday that can change their lives.
BetMGM bettor has placed a bet of $ 25, picking a winner for all 16 NFL games this weekend. The parlay could bring in $ 726,959.
The first 15 stages of the parlay have won. The punter needs the Detroit Lions to upset the Green Bay Packers on Monday night in order to cash the bet. Currently, Detroit sits at +450 on the BetMGM silver line.
It was an unlikely trip
Each week the NFL brings us action-packed drama that leaves us trying to figure out exactly what happened. This week was no different as we saw five endings that kept us excited until the very last second. This bettor was on the safe side of each of these decisions.
Washington Football Team: With Washington just one point and less than three minutes to go, Taylor Heinicke threw an interception on Washington territory. The Giants were only 11 seconds behind before scoring a basket to take the lead. Heinicke then led a Washington drive into Basket Beach. With the expiration of time, Dustin Hopkins missed a field goal for 48 yards. However, the Giants’ Dexter Lawrence came offside and Hopkins then scored the 43-yard field goal with no time left.
Arizona Cardinals: In an exciting back-and-forth game that saw the leader change hands eight times, it looked like it was going to depend on which team had the ball last. In the dying moments, Kirk Cousins led the Minnesota Vikings well into the basket lineup. Greg Joseph then missed a 37-yard field goal at the end of the time limit and Arizona survived.
Dallas Cowboys: In a close fight, it once again boiled down to a kicker in the dying seconds. It felt like Dallas didn’t have much of a rush to gain extra yards once they got into kicker Greg Zuerlein’s reach, meaning the kicker would be tested from 56 yards. After missing three kicks in Dallas’ opener, Zuerlein took revenge by nailing the winner at the end of the time limit.
Tennessee Titans: Derrick Henry scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter as the Tennessee Titans erased a 14-point deficit to force overtime in Seattle. After the Titans won the draw in overtime but couldn’t move the ball, they were forced to kick the ball. Russell Wilson only needed a field goal, but the Titans’ defense forced a punt towards his offense. Randy Bullock hit from a 36-yard field goal to win it for Tennessee.
Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens erased a two-goal lead for the Chiefs in the second half with two touchdowns from Lamar Jackson. Despite that, it looked like the Chiefs were in position for a win when Patrick Mahomes managed to get the ball within shooting range with less than two minutes to go. Clyde Edwards-Helaire then fumbled for the first time in his career and Baltimore survived.
In addition to those five games, the punter picked both the Carolina Panthers and the Las Vegas Raiders on the silver line. Both teams entered the week as underdogs by at least three points and ended up comfortably winning their matches.
The last is the hardest
While going 15 for 15 in the NFL is an impressive achievement, it will all be for nothing if the Detroit Lions don’t win on Monday night. Detroit is the biggest underdog that the bettor has included in his bet. The The Lions are currently 11.5 point underdogs at BetMGM.
The Lions are expected to be one of the worst teams in the league as the Green Bay Packers have just made back-to-back appearances in the NFC Championship game. For Monday’s game, 56% of the betting handle is on Green Bay to cover as favorites with 11.5 points.
The sad reality for this bettor is that bettors are giving Detroit less than a 20% chance of winning this game. As a result, the bettor is not able to hedge his bet either. They would have to bet over $ 630,000 on the Packers’ cash line to secure a profit of nearly $ 97,000. Most people don’t have that kind of money lying around.
The bettor might as well let the bet go up. Upsets happen all the time and it was only a $ 25 bet so the risk is minimal. Most people who bet Detroit on Moneyline tonight will get odds of +450. This bettor will get the Lions silver line at 29,078 to 1.
Good luck my friend.
