Thinking about putting some action on tonight’s NFL doubleheader but haven’t pulled the trigger yet? If so, don’t worry — we’ll do our part in pushing you over the edge into the degenerate zone.
Honestly, just take a look above. That betting slip is all the inspiration you need to put your hard-earned money on the line. Per Linemakers, the $100 eight-team parlay (spanning the NFL, MLB and WNBA) was placed at the Edgewater Casino in Nevada:
The gambler – described as a “regular, who is in the book every week making his ‘off the board’ parlays'” – included a pair of WNBA first-half lines, three NFL first-half plays and three five-inning MLB picks on his ticket. They all won, and he put $14,978 into his pocket.
“It was pretty crazy how it was WNBA, baseball and football,” said Michael Grodsky, director of marketing at William Hill U.S., the company that operates the sports book at the Edgewater.
We’re guessing that guy started kicking himself after the excitement of the win wore off. Why? He’s a goddamn gambler — there were probably thousands lost because he didn’t add some U.S. Open action or player props.
Sidenote: If you’re feeling ballsy, there are two WNBA games to potentially mess with tonight.
