BetMGM gambler needs Lions’ victory to win $726K

If Jared Goff and the Lions can deliver an outright win at Green Bay, one BetMGM gambler is poised to win $726,000 on a 16-team parlay.

One BetMGM customer might be rushing to his bank and then to a sportsbook on Monday afternoon.

MGM took a $25, 16-leg NFL moneyline parlay that included a pick on every game in Week 2. All 15 legs have cashed so far, leaving Detroit at +400 as the final piece of the puzzle.

If the Lions are able to pull off the upset as 12-point underdogs at Green Bay on Monday night, the bettor would cash his ticket for more than $726,000. Five teams have already come through as underdogs in the parlay.

The obvious discussion heading into the final game of the ticket is a potential hedge. A full hedge would require more than $300,000 on the best Green Bay money-line price he can find, but it is unlikely he has that much cash laying around.

A more feasible option would be to bet as much as he can on the Packers tonight. The original wager was only $25, so guaranteeing at least $10,000 would be a very nice payday. It would require a $60,000 bet to win that amount.

The final leg is by far the unlikeliest to win in this 16-teamer. Five underdogs have cashed this week, but none of them were longer than +190. Tennessee erased a two-touchdown deficit at Seattle on Sunday afternoon to keep the parlay alive.

Sunday night provided another scare, as Kansas City jumped out to an early lead at Baltimore. The Ravens (+180) were able to hang around, eventually clinching the game on a fourth-down conversion from quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Las Vegas (+190) picked up an outright win at Pittsburgh as a 5.5-point underdog on Sunday as well. The other underdogs were Carolina (+150) and Dallas (+135)—the Cowboys won on the final play when Greg Zuerlein hit a 56-yard field goal.

Minnesota had a chance to end the parlay in the afternoon slate on Sunday, but Arizona (-190) held on when the Vikings missed a 37-yard field goal as time expired. Los Angeles (-190) picked up a win over Indianapolis on a late field goal. Green Bay opened as an 11-point favorite against Detroit and has been bet up to -12.
