Baseball Bettor On Pace To Turn $1 Into $1M With Insane Futures Parlay

A baseball and glove sit on a stack of $100 bills.


A baseball bettor is hoping to turn a $1 wager into a $1 million win on an insane MLB futures parlay, and at the moment, it looks possible.

The slip predicts each of Major League Baseball’s divisional winners. As we near the midway point in the season, each of those six teams is in first place.

And there were certainly some longshots.

The odds on the ticket are all over the board, ranging from -110 (Atlanta) to +6000 (Cincinnati). Others include the Rangers to win the AL West (+900), the Diamondbacks to win the NL West (+4000), the Rays to win the AL East (+375), and the Twins to win the AL Central (+225).

Combined, the parlay odds come out to a ridiculous +73708349, or chances of around 740,000/1.

After the 75-game mark, this guy looks like an absolute genius.

He’s benefitted from a recent hot streak by the Reds, who’ve won their last 11 games to leapfrog the Brewers in the NL Central. His other longshots, the Rangers and Diamondbacks currently hold multigame leads in their respective divisions.

Favorites like the Braves and Rays have done their thing while the Twins are winning just enough to stay in the conversation.

Should things stay as they are now, the $1.62 bet could turn into a $1,194,076.87 payout.

Of course, things can change quickly in these divisional races. Look no further than the NL Central, where three different teams have led over the last two weeks. The Pirates have fallen from first to fourth over their last 10 games due to a 1-9 stretch, proving that it just takes one cold streak to ruin the ticket.

For that reason, many in the comments section are telling the bettor to cash out. That total already sits at more than $8,000, which would be quite the return in and of itself.

Most seem to have the least amount of faith in the Twins, who lead the AL Central with a losing record.

Of course, there are those that say, “Let it ride.”

That $1.1 million number has to be tempting.

This guy might have the right idea.

This will certainly be a ticket to track as the season continues. Hopefully, the baseball bettor makes the best decision, whatever that may be.
