Recently on sports gambling Twitter, bettors have been trying challenges to turn $10 into $10K.

Usually, these challenges plan to just roll over their winnings over the course of 10 bets.

Last night, one bettor found a way to get from $15 to $6768 a whole lot faster.

The bettor wagered that $15 on an NBA parlay of LeBron James and LaMelo Ball to get triple-doubles and Nikola Jokic to get a triple-double and the Denver Nuggets to win at a payout of +45020.

Things got a little bit dicey on the first leg of this parlay, with LeBron James needing overtime to pick up his 10th rebound. However, there was an argument to be made that the rebound should have come earlier.

The second leg was much less of a sweat. LaMelo Ball got his 10th rebound with around 6 minutes left in the game. That left him just needing an assist for the triple-double, which he got with 2 minutes left.

Once those two legs had been taken care of, Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets left no doubt about the last leg hitting. The Nuggets led for almost the entire 2nd half and Jokic put together a monster game. With a stat line of 26 points, 18 rebounds, and 15 assists, Jokic would have gotten his trouble double even if he didn’t play at all in the 4th quarter.

It had to be a relieving end to the parlay after a tense first two legs and it’s a pretty nice way to close out a $6000 win on a $15 bet.
