Former NFL star hits parlay worth $416K on UNLV’s late collapse

Former Dallas Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant hit a 13-team college basketball parlay worth more than $400,000 late Saturday — at the expense of UNLV.

Bryant needed UNR (+105 on the money line) to defeat the Rebels to turn his $767.68 wager at BetMGM into $416,970.35.

The Wolf Pack trailed by 11 points in the second half but rallied for a 69-66 victory at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Bryant posted on X at halftime, asking his followers if he should accept a cash-out offer from the sportsbook for $79,448.08 with UNR trailing 36-28. He ended up letting the bet ride.

“No risk No reward,” he posted.
