That being said, I’ll never forget the greatest sports wager I’ve ever seen personally. In 2005 my friend’s dad signed up for an event at a local sports book offering a one-hundred thousand dollar payout for a 10-team parlay card purchased for five dollars. His dad liked it enough to place it four times, for a total of twenty dollars. Against unimaginable odds, he hit all of his picks perfectly.
There is no great advice I can give you to hit one of these cards, but for ten dollars a week you can make two of these bets that give you a shot at getting rich quick!
This is one of the newer opportunities available to the “get rich quick” people. With the growth of daily fantasy, the tournament pots have gotten larger and larger. There is some real money to be won now on the daily fantasy sites if you choose that perfect lineup.
While they will struggle to get past the Warriors, and the Warriors will always be favored, they have a team good enough to possibly score the upset, especially now with Carmelo Anthony joining the team. At odds like those, a semi-large bet could return some very nice odds!
