Every week people make crazy parlay bets on the full Sunday NFL slate and every once in a while someone lands it and wins big. 


For this lucky FanDuel bettor he was able to turn a measly $10 into $11,197.05!


When you first hear that huge winning number, naturally you assume the parlay had some crazy bets within it, but when you take a closer look at this parlay, there's nothing really crazy about it. The bettor even had five moneyline bets, which for the most part pay out much less than spread bets. 

Despite picking a side on every Sunday NFL game, there was nothing out of the ordinary, nothing special or specific. The bettor made a list of sensible bets and they all hit.


What's most surprising is the couple of spots he missed out on making the payout even larger. The two that stand out the most are the Rams and the Chiefs, who were both taken moneyline, but both covered their spreads by double digits. 


Most bets or big-time wins can be looked back with a "what if" attitude, but you have to be happy anytime you can haul in a five-figure payday for less than the cost of lunch. 


We checked, this is not a typical wager. Generally, the odds of hitting a 13-leg parlay like this one are 1 in 1,330.
