By most accounts, people bet on sports for two main reasons. One, to try and make a little extra cash and two, to make watching the game that much more thrilling and entertaining.
The best-case scenario is when those two avenues collide and your join and entertainment of watching the game coincides with making some money.
When it comes to winning bets during games, prop bets are usually the best way to go. This bettor decided he was going to lay down $1,000 on Patrick Mahomes to be the first touchdown scorer in the Chiefs Monday Night Football matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, which would pay him out over $36,000.
Lo and behold, when you bet big, you win big.
The pure shock and joy can't be ignored. A gutsy bet that paid off in a massive way!
