Bettor wins $45,000 on $15 12-team parlay
Was anyone rooting harder for the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night than the individual responsible for this parlay card?
As Todd Furham shared on Twitter, one person won $44,985 after the Falcons covered the 12.5-point spread against the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. The Falcons covering allowed the bettor to hit a 12-team parlay at the Tuscany hotel in Las Vegas, which paid off at 3,000-to-1 odds.
The gambler in question bet on nine of the 11 FBS college football games played on Saturday and got every single pick correct. The gambler supplemented the perfect day of college football bets by correctly picking three NFL games, including both the Sunday and Monday night games.
