A bettor placed a $50 three-leg futures parlay five months ago at Caesars Sportsbook at Paris Las Vegas that pays $98,750.

The gambler is now three Mavericks wins away from cashing the ticket.

The bettor, who placed the wager Dec. 29, hit the first two legs of the parlay on a Michigan over Washington college football national championship exacta at +550 and a Chiefs over 49ers Super Bowl exacta at 18-1 odds.

The third leg is on Dallas to win the Western Conference at 15-1. The Mavericks beat the Timberwolves 108-105 in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday. Dallas is now -170 favorites at Caesars to win the series.

Minnesota, a +140 series underdog, is a 5-point home favorite Friday in Game 2.
