Bettor misses out on $100K with 15-team parlay as Patriots fail to cover by a point


A bettor who stood to win $100,000 on a 15-team parlay over the weekend ended up losing the $5 he risked when the New England Patriots failed to cover against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night. Worse yet, the Pats fell just one point shy.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the bettor had hit all 14 legs of his 15-leg parlay with a William Hill sports book in Nevada heading into “Monday Night Football.” The Patriots were favored by seven and won 30-23. And since the wager was an all-or-nothing parlay card, the push did not result in a 14-leg parlay win. The entire card end up losing.


Those of you who watched the game know just how painful it must have been for that guy. The Patriots could have easily won by 30, but a rare Tom Brady red zone interception and two special teams blunders kept Baltimore in the game. New England should have been up 23-0 at the half and run away with the game.

The last NFL gambler we heard of that came this close to a life-changing win had one quarterback to blame, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the latest bad beat victim blames Brady.

Since the wager amount was only $5 and 14 legs of the parlay had already hit, you have to hope the bettor was wise enough to hedge. At the very least, he could have bet enough to win $10,000 on the Ravens at +7.5 (by buying a half-point) just so he wouldn’t go home empty handed. Hopefully that’s what happened.
