Bettors hit same NFL 1st TD parlay for massive payouts

Updated January 23, 2023 - 12:44 pm

Two bettors correctly picked the first touchdown scorer in all four NFL divisional playoff games and cashed large parlays as a result.

DraftKings Sportsbook reported an unidentified bettor won $185,640 from a $10 four-leg parlay.

A gambler identified as Cameron Craig (@CameronJayCrai1) on Twitter hit a $5 four-leg parlay at FanDuel Sportsbook that paid out $72,795.

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (+600) was the first leg, and Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (+1200) hit on the second leg during Saturday’s playoff games.

On Sunday, Cincinnati wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase (+900) opened the scoring in the Bengals’ 27-10 upset win over the Buffalo Bills.

The FanDuel bettor had the opportunity to cash out after three legs for $1,393.56, according to a picture of the betting ticket posted on Twitter, but instead let it ride. It proved to be a wise move when Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz (+1500) caught a 4-yard pass in the second quarter to put Dallas ahead 6-3.

A video on Twitter showed the FanDuel bettor celebrating wildly with friends as Schultz crossed the goal line.
