Bettor Turns $5 into $84,565 with Week 2 NFL Parlay

  • A Nevada bettor picked every NFL Week 2 winner straight-up, turning $5 into $84,565.
  • The win was part of a weekly pro football progressive jackpot offered by William Hill US.

A sports bettor in Nevada picked all 15 NFL winners in Week 2 to turn a simple $5 wager into a cool $84,565 payday.

According to William Hill US, the big winner won the sportsbook operator’s Nevada Pro Football Progressive Jackpot via a weekly Progressive Card.

The rules of the contest include picking straight-up winners, as opposed to picks against the spread.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers game, which ended in a tie, counted as a win for this bettor

Considering the jackpot heading into Monday Night Football’s Seattle Seahawks-Chicago Bears game, we can’t help but wonder whether the bettor hedged with the Seahawks moneyline, which closed around +190 (or $100 to win $190).

Either way, that’s a return on investment we could all happily get behind.
