On Sunday, millions of people across the United States opted to make Super Bowl LVII a little more interesting with the help of the estimated $16 billion they wagered on The Big Game.

If you were one of the bettors who opted to get financially invested in the showdown between the Chiefs and the Eagles, you’re likely very aware sportsbooks dreamed up an overwhelming number of options to bet on, as there were odds listed for virtually every single facet of the game.

That included more traditional wagers like the over/under and the spread as well as Sicko Specials involving the outcome of the coin toss and the length of the national anthem.

If you were more interested in individual achievements, you also had plenty of things to pick from—including a number of different offerings concerning the players who would punch the ball into the endzone.

Anyone who bet on Jalen Hurts to score the first touchdown of the game was pretty happy when he opened up the scoring with a QB sneak in the first quarter, but it didn’t take long for the Chiefs to get in on the action when Travis Kelce tied things up after snagging a pass from Patrick Mahomes.

Most people expected Kelce to score at some point during the contest—including the person who picked him as one of the four Kansas City players they were hoping to see record a touchdown after throwing down $500 on a four-leg Anytime TD parlay on DraftKings.

The bettor in question got closer to turning $500 into $200,500 when Isiah Pacheco opened up the scoring in the second half with a one-yard run, and when Mahomes connected with Kadarius Toney three minutes into the fourth quarter, they were just one touchdown away from seeing the +40000 longshot hit.

It’s hard to imagine they were very confident that would end up being the case when you consider the last person on the slate was Skyy Moore, a rookie who hadn’t scored a single time over the course of his first season in the league.

However, the wide receiver picked the perfect time to catch the first touchdown of his career, as he made one person very, very, very happy when he gave the Chiefs a 34-27 lead.

Must be nice.
