Turning to your significant other and asking if you should cash out a big parlay doesn’t usually work out like it did for Sean Klumpp on Monday night.
Sitting in a sportsbook in French Lick, Ind. on Monday night, Klumpp turned to his wife, Mia, and asked her if he should push the $76,777.77 cash out button offered by FanDuel, having hit nine of 10 bets on a $500 parlay with a Los Angeles Chargers (-3) cover away from taking home $126,081. Los Angeles held a 21-0 lead at the time.
“Let it ride,” said Mia, who last saw her husband win a big parlay — roughly one fifth this size in January.
Klumpp listened and cashed when the Chargers beat the Las Vegas Raiders, 28-14. By letting it ride, Klumpp won an extra $49K.
The answer was the same when Klumpp asked before the game and the cash out value was $45,200.
“I was nervous,” Klumpp told The Action Network, “but not as nervous as the game before when I had the Bucs moneyline.”
The Bucs, of course, prevailed 19-17 when a 56-yard Patriots field goal attempt doinked off the uprights late in the game. The Buccaneers, in Tom Brady’s return to Foxboro, trailed 7-6 at halftime before taking a 13-7 lead in the third quarter and holding on late.
Klumpp didn’t have any other close calls.
The parlay was a mix of alternate spreads, moneylines and player prop combinations.
