June 16, 2022 (Oakland, CA) -- A 62-year-old Oakland, CA man turned $400 into a cool $135,128 yesterday after successfully winning a 9-leg parlay bet on a series of MLB baseball games, BetUS announced today. The online sportsbook said that it does not release customers' names or other personally identifiable information.
The big win happened on Wednesday when the customer played six games for moneylines and the rest on "over/under" bets or totals. The moneyline teams that hit were the San Diego Padres, Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels. The over/under or totals were Reds-Padres (O/U 8, which went over), Pirates-Brewers (under 7½), Rockies-Phillies (over 7, ended up at 8 runs), Nationals-Marlins (under 8) Braves-Cubs (under 8½), and Yankees-Orioles (over 8½).
"At BetUS, we really do enjoy seeing our customers hit big payouts, and baseball parlays seem to be doing quite well for our customers lately. Just six weeks ago, another BetUS customer in Lakewood, WA bet an MLB parlay that turned a $265 wager into $200,000," said Tim Williams, director of public relations for BetUS.
Williams said that he has not personally spoken to the winner but "hopes he has a great summer" with his massive winnings.
