Bloke Turns Five Cents Into Over $18,000 With Longshot NBA Multi

Milwaukee Bucks Chicago Bulls Stake Bet NBA

Here at BH, we like to celebrate whenever an everyday punter overcomes the insurmountable odds. Take, for example, one @niko.martinovic3 – who recently placed an incredibly negligible US$0.05 / AU$0.07 on Game 5 between defending NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks and the Chicago Bulls via Stake, only to be rewarded with a considerably heftier sum of US$18,800 / AU$26,265.

The headline-making bet was a two-leg multi or “parlay” as the Yanks like to call it. The major component involved predicting the exact final score, which Stake was willing to pay +94,000 odds on, while the other hinged upon the Giannis Antetokounmpo scoring the very first basket, which came attached with +400 odds.

All up, the total odds came to +37,600,000. And wouldn’t you believe it, the mad lad was right on the money.

By the last buzzer, the Bucks had squared away yet another win against the Bulls with a final score of 116-100 – as @niko.martinovic3 had anticipated – with the Greek Freak having recorded opening points. Antetokounmpo would hit the showers with 33 points (11-14 FG), nine rebounds, and three assists after 30 minutes of playing time.

Now imagine if old mate threw down a full dollar or – dare I say it – ten? In any case, you love to see it.

Now that you’ve read all about @niko.martinovic3’s jaw-dropping bet on the Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls through Stake, revisit that time a bloke turned $20 into $579,000 by predicting the final scores of this year’s NFL Championship Games here.
