Sports betting can be a high-risk, high-reward endeavor in many ways, and parlays can take that to the next level. Parlays, by nature, take on the all or nothing approach, but when 10 or more games are involved, the proposition of cashing in a winning ticket becomes all the more challenging.
During Week 13 of the Sunday NFL slate, one bettor at FanDuel Sportsbook laid down a measly $1 on a parlay that included all 12 games that day. And after the Houston Texans came away with an upset win over the New England Patriots, that customer won $10,128.
Now that's an unbelievable ROI. This is a win most bettors can only dream of, while this one made it a reality. And with unlikely upsets including the Cincinnati Bengals, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins, it makes the win all that more impressive.
Many times the juice doesn't seem worth the squeeze with certain parlays, but if you're willing to risk less than the price of a cup of coffee with this potential return, it might be something to keep on your radar for the rest of the 2019 NFL season.
