A bettor at FanDuel has a +1600073 (!), 17-leg parlay down to its final leg: Joe Mixon over 63.5 rushing yards on Monday Night Football’s Bengals vs. Browns.

The bettor put $7.77 on a Same Game Parlay+ that encompassed nine different games on Sunday in addition to Monday Night Football.

The potential payout? $124,333.46.

When this story first published, the bettor told the Action Network he wasn’t hedging this pick because FanDuel wasn’t giving him the option to.

Since then, he placed $34,000 at Caesars on Mixon to rush for under 67.5 yards, according to VSiN.

So, if Mixon rushes for over 67.5 yards, the bettor will net $90,000. If Mixon rushes for under 63.5 yards, the bettor will net about $30,000.

And if Mixon rushes between 63.5 and 67.5 yards? The bettor will net about $150K.

The wager almost lost several times.

Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby missed a 55-yard field goal with a minute left against the Bills, which would’ve ensured the over at 46.5 — and a worthless parlay. Buffalo kneeled out the clock on its ensuing drive.

The Bills also had the ball on the Packers’ three-yard line earlier in the fourth quarter before a Josh Allen interception on third down prevented what would’ve been a chip shot field goal.

For Bears vs. Cowboys, CeeDee Lamb came up with his last catch — a 12-yard gain to give him the over — late in the third but got barreled hard and easily could’ve dropped the ball.

For Cardinals vs. Vikings, the bettor needed a DeAndre Hopkins touchdown catch, which he made with one hand and amidst a ton of contact. Few other receivers in the league come down with that ball.

And without a Tyler Lockett fumble at his own two-yard line, Saquon Barkley wouldn’t have had the opportunity to punch in two straight one-yard rushes to score his TD against the Seahawks.
