Bloke Turns $20 Into $579,000 By Predicting Final Scores Of NFL Championship Games

NFL Championship Games Bet

It’s the stuff of dreams. The kind of thing ordinary folks like you and I only encounter in pub chat, internet virality, and our wildest fantasies. In defiance of all odds, the bookmakers, and God himself, one lucky punter has cashed out $579,020 worth of winnings from their $20 bet after predicting the final scores of both 2022 NFL championship games.

What are the chances someone would correctly guess the Cincinnati Bengals would upset the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 and that the Los Angeles Rams would triumph over the San Francisco 49ers 20-17? According to Bloomberg, the probability of calling the American Conference championship + National Conference title match’s exact outcomes was just 0.03%. Or three times in every 10,000 attempts. Although our headliner wasn’t the only success story on this occasion…

FanDuel Sportsbook spokesperson Kevin Hennessy confirmed two other members of the universe’s chosen few managed to win big with similar exact-score multis (or “parlay bets”, as the Yanks like to call them). One gambler turned $5 into $145,000, while another made threw an equally negligible $2 down and copped a comparatively heftier $58,000 in return.

“It’s truly amazing to see a customer pick the exact score of both conference championship games,” says Kevin Hennessy.

“We had some very happy customers last night.”

This 2022 NFL championship games bet will no doubt be immortalised within the pantheon of punting legends. Right alongside that time some local hero turned a single dollar into $679,894 with his fully-loaded golf multi; as well as the time some Finnish operator overcame 166,990/1 odds after Pierre Gasly, Carlos Sainz, and Lance Stroll finished at the 2020 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix (Monza) in successive fashion – effectively turning 20 cents into €33,398.

Ya love to see it.
