A sports bettor on BetOnline placed $55 on a 22-team, five-sport parlay last weekend and amazingly won $21,690.The guy bet on 21 heavy favourites in baseball, football, rugby, soccer, and tennis over the past few weeks, and they all won.
He also threw in a random German second-division soccer team at +265 odds, and won that too.
“The damn FSV Frankfurt (+265) was the killer,” BetOnline told Pregame.com.
The payout calculated out to 394-1.
As crazy as this wager seems, it’s actually part of a sharp system of betting that can yield modest returns in the long term.
