DraftKings bettor risks $3 million to win $5.5M on three-team football parlay

A $3M parlay at DraftKings includes Georgia to win the SEC East.

While DraftKings Sportsbook has been called out for restricting some of its winning customers’
limits, it also takes monster wagers from other players.

The book took its biggest mobile sports bet ever on Tuesday morning, according to Ben Fawkes
of VSiN. It has a $3 million three-team parlay that has +186 odds, which could potentially pay
$5.5 million.

All three legs of the parlay are divisional futures in football. Two of them are college football
wagers, while the other leg is an NFL bet.

Alabama to win the SEC West is the heaviest favorite in the parlay at -670. The Crimson Tide
entered the season as the -160 favorite to win the SEC outright and are now the only undefeated
team in their division after two weeks of action.

On the other side of the conference, Georgia is priced at -110 to win the SEC East. The Bulldogs
are the second leg of the parlay. They are co-favorites with Florida to win the division after both
teams are off to 2-0 starts.

Georgia was listed as a 3.5-point favorite over Florida in the Game of the Year odds earlier this
year. However, that game would likely be close to a pick ’em if it was played this week. The
teams will play in what could be an SEC East-decider on Nov. 7.

The final leg of the $3 million parlay is Green Bay to win the NFC North at a -360 price point.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are off to a 4-0 start and have been one of the hottest teams in the
NFL to open the season.

They are one game clear of Chicago (3-1) in the division standings. Detroit and Minnesota are
both 1-3 to start the season and appear to have some major problems. Green Bay and Chicago
will square off on Nov. 29 and Jan. 3.

There has been a fair amount of criticism surrounding this parlay on Twitter. Betting on futures
gives the house an even larger edge—43 percent in this case, as chronicled in this thread by
sports bettor “Captain Jack Andrews.”

Alabama travels to Ole Miss, Georgia hosts Tennessee and Green Bay will play at Tampa Bay
this weekend.
