Bettor turns $80 into $106K with MLB parlay

Updated August 28, 2023 - 2:03 pm

A Caesars Sportsbook bettor in New York turned $80 into $106,530 on Sunday after hitting a nine-leg MLB parlay.

The bettor had relatively easy winners on seven of the legs, but had to sweat out two plays on the -1½ run line on the Diamondbacks (+162) and Rays (+158).

Arizona was tied 2-2 with Cincinnati in the bottom of the eighth when it scored three runs en route to a 5-2 win. The Diamondbacks drew three straight walks to start the inning before scoring runs on back-to-back sacrifice flies by Christian Walker and Evan Longoria. Alek Thomas followed with an RBI single.

Tampa Bay trailed 4-2 in the sixth before rallying for four runs with two outs on its way to a 7-4 win over the Yankees. Harold Ramirez flared a bases-loaded single that went just over a slow-to-react Gleyber Torres at second base, and Brandon Lowe followed with a two-run single.

Here are the other seven legs of the parlay, which was a 1,331 to 1 long shot.

— Astros RL (-1½, -105), beat Tigers 17-4

— Cubs RL (-1½, +130), beat Pirates 10-1

— Dodgers RL (-1½, +122), beat Red Sox 7-4

— White Sox RL (-1½, +158), beat Athletics 6-1

— Guardians-Blue Jays Over 8½ (-115), 10-7

— Royals-Mariners Under 4½ first five innings (-105), 3-0

— Rangers RL first five innings (-½), Rangers led Twins 5-0 after five innings en route to 7-6 loss.

Colorado went 1-11 last season and has a season win total of 3½ (u-120) at BetMGM sportsbook. But that hasn’t stopped bettors from banking on big things from the Buffaloes in Deion Sanders’ first year as coach.

BetMGM has taken wagers on Colorado of $1,000 to win $250,000 to win the national championship (250-1), $4,500 to win $450,000 to win the Pac-12 (100-1), and $1,000 to win $125,000 on Buffaloes quarterback Shedeur Sanders to win the Heisman Trophy (125-1).
