An 8 Legged College Basketball Parlay Monster
This DK bettor knows how to pick some really random college basketball games. Draftkings Sportsbook reported this parlay from last night that mixed college basketball money lines and spreads. Here is the winning lineup; Purdue – 5 vs Iowa, Providence moneyline to win vs Creighton. Cal Poly money line to win vs Long Beach State. Then, Minnesota -3.5 vs Wisconsin, OK State -3 vs TCU and UMBC -3 vs. Hartford. This genius picker also added Texas A&M-CC +0.5 vs McNeese State.
First of all we googled Texas A&M-CC and confirmed that it stands for Corpus Christi. Secondly, and most importantly is the payout. This 8-leg parlay was a $100 ticket, which won a total of $14,525,03 when all 8 picks hit. Somebody has some extra XFL betting money this weekend.
Mattress Mack lost a million dollars again.
The Houston mattress salesman has quickly become one of the most famous sports bettors in the world for his enormous MLB and NFL wagers. Most notably, Mac bet $13m at the Scarlet Pearl and other sportsbooks when he backed his home town Houston Astros to win the World Series.
It seems that Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale has no problems with losing seven figure bets. In fact, his promotional wagering might actually work out better for his furniture stores when he loses. Often, the bets are part of a store promotion where he offers free furniture if one team wins, then bets a huge amount of money on the other team.
This time, Mattress Mack bet $1,000,000 on the 49ers moneyline at +120 odds in-person at the Mirage, Las Vegas. So if San Francisco won the game, he would get a 1.2 million dollar payout.
We all saw the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl, and we’re guessing Mac ate quite a few cold stress wings as the Niners let their 10 point lead fizzle into an 11 point loss. The loss only further extended his losing streak, as Mack previously lost $2,000,000 betting against the Chiefs in previous playoff games.
We think Mattress will recover from this one, for more seven figure big bets in the future. Reports are that he did not have to take the Greyhound home from Las Vegas.
Irish bettor perfectly parlays two golf tournaments on opposite sides of the world.
It is very hard to predict the winner of a golf tournament. There can be well over 100 players in any PGA event. So, the odds are always against players who pick a specific winner. A bettor in Ireland, who wished to be anonymous, managed to predict not just one but two golf winners on the same weekend. As if that isn’t crazy enough, this betting ninja parlayed the two together.
This happened in late 2019. The parlay was Xander Schauffele to win the WGC HSBC Champions in Shanghai, plus Cameron Champ to win the Sanderson Farms tournament happening simultaneously in the US. Amazingly, both players won their events in dramatic fashion. This had to be a long and sleepless weekend in Ireland as the TV coverage of both events played out from opposing hemispheres.
The wager was 10 euros on the two leg parlay, but the payout was much much more. This golf whisperer took in winnings of $10,950 EU. That’s $12,014.39 in US Dollars!
