One BetMGM user threw down a meager $10 wager on a wild, 11-team parlay across multiple sports over the weekend and, miraculously, it hit.

Look at this beautiful madness:

  • Georgia Tech moneyline

  • Arkansas State moneyline

  • Appalachian State under

  • North Carolina under

  • Iowa State under

  • Army under

  • Duke +20.5

  • UTSA moneyline

  • Coastal Carolina moneyline

  • Yankees moneyline

  • Rockets-Lakers under

A $10 wager combining those 11 outcomes yielded a win of $152,341.28. Not too shabby.

College football underdogs, wild finish

Those college football moneyline bets came on significant underdogs, too. Georgia Tech (+12.5) and Arkansas State (+14.5) were both double-digit underdogs, but pulled off outright road wins over Florida State and Kansas State, respectively. Coastal Carolina was also a road underdog, but it blew out Kansas 38-23 late on Saturday night.

The three college football under bets all hit fairly comfortably, but the UTSA moneyline was a close call. Extremely close.

UTSA beat Texas State 51-48 in double-overtime in what was the most-exciting game of Week 2. The Roadrunners stormed out to a 24-7 halftime lead and appeared to have a victory sealed when Rashad Wisdom returned an interception 81 yards for a touchdown to put the Roadrunners up 41-28 with 3:24 to play. But that was when things got wild.

Texas State managed to force overtime by scoring two quick touchdowns. The second was a 91-yard punt return by Jeremiah Haydel that looked like it was going to put TSU ahead. Instead, Alan Oroza hooked the extra point and the game went to overtime with the score tied at 41 apiece.

Oroza’s rough afternoon only continued. After the teams traded touchdowns in the first overtime, Texas State settled for a short field goal to open double-overtime. Oroza missed again, this time from just 20 yards out. UTSA then clinched the victory with a field goal of its own.

A brutal outcome for Texas State was a big win for our parlay hero.

MLB, NBA close calls

And if nine college football picks wasn’t enough for this bettor, his MLB and NBA wagers both came down to the wire. A 10th-inning, walk-off sacrifice fly by Luke Voit gave the New York Yankees a 2-1 moneyline win over the Baltimore Orioles while the under 217.5 narrowly hit in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers.

The final score: 119-96. That’s a total of 215, 2.5 points under the total.

All in a day’s work.
