Bettor settles for $70K rather than risk $764K parlay win

Updated June 5, 2023 - 6:02 pm

A bettor who needed the Panthers to win the Stanley Cup and the Heat to win the NBA title to turn $41.25 into $763,835.33 cashed out the four-team parlay Monday for $70,429.98.

The Barstool Sportsbook bettor hit the first two legs of the parlay in April on an Orioles-Nationals game to go under nine runs and Zizou Bergs (-134) over Patrick Kypson in a tennis match on the ATP Challenger Tour in Tallahassee, Florida.

The other two legs of the 18,517-to-1 long shot were on Miami (80-1) and Florida (70-1) to win it all.

After the Heat beat the Nuggets on Sunday night to even the NBA Finals at one game apiece, the gambler cashed out for the reduced, but still lucrative, amount.

Parlay cashouts are not available at Las Vegas sportsbooks.

The Golden Knights, who beat the Panthers 5-2 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, or Denver can help the bettor feel better about the decision to cash out by claiming the crown.
