The holidays are the time of giving, but one lucky sports gambler got the gift of winning thanks to a crazy parlay during a Portland Trail Blazers-Houston Rockets NBA game the other day, scoring an insane $15,000 on a measly $10 bet. It was the first-ever five-figure Build-a-Bet basketball payout on BetMGM, and was also the longest odds Build-a-Bet winner globally on any sport of all-time. That’s insanity.
So what’d it take for the sports gambler to walk away with thousands? Not only a ton of luck, but also overtime in the NBA game, with the Rockets and Blazers going head-to-head in an epic early season matchup, and needing one overtime session before Portland came out victorious. The extra frame made all the difference to the gambler, and secured the big-time victory.
Take a look below at the winning bets.
- D. Lillard over 8.5 assists
- J. Harden over 10.5 assists
- C. Wood over 22.5 pts
- CJ. McCollum over 18.5 pts
- D. House Jr. over 9.5 pts
- D. Lillard over 30.5 pts
- J. Harden 40+ pts
- C. Wood over 11.5 rebounds
- D. Jones Jr. over 4.5 rebounds
- P.J. Tucker over 6.5 rebounds
Now, there’s obviously no guarantee any of us will have that kind of sports gambling luck, but, with BetMGM offering a risk free bet up to $600 for new customers, it’s worth trying to score loads of cash, right? With the NBA back, the NFL playoffs approaching and college football crowning a national champion soon, maybe you can be the next big winner.
There are some things in life that take lots of skill. Others take a little luck. And, while betting on sports can combine the two things, you can’t win if you don’t play.
