An amazing thing happened in Major League baseball on Tuesday night and many fans may have not even noticed.
All 15 home teams won.
It was the most home victories without a loss in history. The previous mark was 12-0, a record set on May 23, 1914.
The historic event created an intriguing possibility for bettors.
Though it may be difficult to find a place to put down a 15-team parlay, and nearly impossible in Las Vegas, the payout for anyone who could have done so would have been enormous.
Based on the closing number of all 15 games using a standard parlay calculator, a $10 bet on all 15 home teams to win on Tuesday would have paid $30,418. The number would be a bit higher if not for the fact 13 home teams were favored to win and only two were underdogs.
Still, that’s a nice day’s work.
Of course, a bettor who would have made such a wager has probably lost a whole lot of cash chasing such a payday.
