BetMGM bettor 1 win away from turning $25 into $737K

A BetMGM bettor is one win away from turning $25 into $736,959.

The gambler needs the Lions to beat the Packers on “Monday Night Football” at Lambeau Field to cash a 16-team NFL money-line parlay.

Detroit is an 11½-point underdog at Green Bay but the bettor — who placed the wager in Michigan — took the Lions at 4-1 on the money line, which means they must win the game outright.

The gambler could hedge the bet to ensure a profit but would need to come up with a substantial sum to place on the Packers, who are -650 on the money line. For example, a bettor would need to wager $65,000 to win $10,000 on Green Bay.

The gambler had several close calls en route to winning the first 15 legs of the parlay, starting with the first leg on Washington (-175).

The Football Team beat the New York Giants on Thursday night on Dustin Hopkins’ 43-yard field goal as time expired. Hopkins missed a 48-yarder on the previous play but got another chance after an offsides penalty on the Giants.

The Arizona Cardinals (-190) held 0n for a 34-33 win over the Vikings on Sunday when Minnesota kicker Greg Joseph missed a 37-yard field goal with four seconds left.

The bettor also kept the parlay alive with upsets by the Raiders (+190), Carolina Panthers (+150) and Dallas Cowboys (+135), and comeback wins by the Tennessee Titans (+190) and Baltimore Ravens (+180).

Here are the other winning legs:

— Bears (-130)

— Browns (-650)

— Rams (-190)

— Bills (-175)

— Patriots (-250)

— 49ers (-160)

— Broncos (-275)

— Buccaneers (-650)
