One bettor earned a massive payday on a 9-team parlay that took place on Wednesday.
The wager was $300 and cashed for $94,603, according to Ben Fawkes of VSIN. It was placed at DraftKings in New Jersey.
Houston easily covered the -1.5 spread, beating San Francisco 5-1. Martin Maldonado hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning, breaking the game open.
The Twins’ game was an even easier winner for the parlay bettor, as Minnesota destroyed Milwaukee, 12-2. Byron Buxton hit two solo home runs and Miguel Sano added another in the rout.
Oakland continued the trend of sweat-free parlay legs, beating the Angels by four runs. The A’s broke it open in the eighth inning, scoring three runs in their 8-4 win.
Baltimore came through with an outright win against Philadelphia, covering the +1.5 spread in the process. Anthony Santander’s homer off the foul pole was the difference in the game.
The cross-sport parlay only included one NBA game, where the Clippers were slated as five-point favorites against Denver. Los Angeles came through in the second half, outscoring the Nuggets by 21 points after intermission. Denver led by eight points at halftime.
Boston and Tampa Bay went ‘over’ their listed total of 9.5 runs, cashing the only plus-money leg in the parlay. The Red Sox scored five runs in the eighth inning to get the game across the finish line.
New York recovered from an early two-run deficit against Atlanta, taking care of business with a 6-3 win at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees were -1.5 on the run-line, but they came through offensively in the fourth and fifth innings to cover the spread.
The Chicago White Sox were the second-shortest leg of the parlay at -127. They were led by a four-hit day from Tim Anderson, getting past the Tigers in a 7-5 win.
Texas and Seattle barely got the parlay to the window in the final game of the day. The Rangers poured in five runs in the eighth inning to squeak the game ‘over’ the total of nine runs, winning 7-4 in the process. Derek Dietrich reached base all four times and scored twice in his Texas debut.
