The biggest betting stories from Week 4 of the NFL as we take a look at the most satisfying betting wins and the most devastating betting losses.
It’s safe to say there was BIG money wagered over at DraftKings Sportsbook this weekend. To start, one bettor placed $1.4 million on Over 42 points in the Jaguars-Bengals game. The actual total for Jags-Bengals was much higher than 42 (it closed at 49.5 at DraftKings) so this bettor paid some heavy juice (-263) to move the line down to 42.
The bet cashed early in the fourth quarter thanks to a 50-yard field goal from the Jaguars’ Aldrick Rosas and the DraftKings bettor profited over $523,000.
There was even bigger money to be won at DraftKings though. One bold player stuck a $2 million bet on:
- CFB: Florida to beat South Carolina
- CFB: Tennessee to beat Missouri
- NFL: Rams to beat the Giants
The Rams’ 17-9 victory against the Giants on Sunday meant that all three legs of this parlay hit, and the bettor won $3.1 million as a result!
Here’s another winner from DraftKings this weekend. Significantly smaller stakes than the two bets above at just $5, but the win is definitely more impressive:
Over at FanDuel Sportsbook, one player placed a $174 4-leg Same Game Parlay on the Browns @ Cowboys. All four chosen touchdown scorers delivered and the bet won almost $40,000!
Now this one isn’t an NFL bet, but hats off to whoever predicted this. $52 turned into over $5,000:
The Arizona Cardinals were to blame for a lot of losing slips on Sunday. Almost everyone tipped them to win and cover (-3) against the Panthers, with 90% of money at FanDuel and 83% of money at SugarHouse on Arizona.
Carolina pulled off a 31-21 upset and a number of bettors, including the one mentioned above, had their slips ruined. There’s always one team!
Meanwhile, one bettor at South Point Casino placed a meaty $60,000 on Oklahoma to beat Iowa State. At -300 odds, the bet would have only netted $20,000 profit if it had hit. Iowa State were 37-30 winners and this bettor was left $60,000 out of pocket:
