The same bettor who wagered $130,000 on a two-team college football parlay in Week 1 is apparently back for more in Week 2.
The bettor is now known as “Duffel Bag Boy”, and his Week 2 parlays have totaled more than $100,000 in risked money.
Last week, Duffel Bag Boy’s money was behind Ohio State (-38.5) and Wisconsin (-37). He took each play individually, and placed a $130,000 parlay combining the two.
While the Buckeyes scored 77 points en route to a 46-point win, the Badgers weren’t so cooperative, winning by only 31.

According to Nick Bogdanovic of William Hill, Duffel Bag Boy’s Ohio State straight bet was enough to cover the parlay loss, as he had $160,000 behind the Buckeyes … ho hum.
As for his Week 2 picks, they all have a couple things in common. They’re all 30+ point favorites coming off blowout wins last week. With Bet Labs, we’re able to look back at how teams have performed in that situation, and unfortunately for DBB, it’s not great.
Teams that are favored by more than 30 points in Week 2 after winning by at least five touchdowns in Week 1 have gone only 13-15 against the spread, losing about three units since 2005.
Pray for Duffel Bag Boy, I guess?
