A 49ers fan put his life savings on a two team parlay

65k parlay

Sunday night we will know if this guy made the best or worst decision of his life. Pulling together $65,430 for a two team parlay on the Cincinnati Bengals -1 over the Baltimore Ravens and his San Francisco 49ers to cover the 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

According to his reddit post:

“Yeah, it’s just about everything I have. If I win I’m moving to the Bay area and getting an SBL at the new stadium.

In the unlikely event that I actually lose this bet, I still have a job and a place to live and food in the kitchen and beer in the fridge. It’s not like my life will be over.

The money was a combination of saving paychecks, and making money off of speculating bitcoins and stocks. Not quite enough to significantly alter the course of my life, which is why I’m throwing it all in on a one-shot to try to do so.”

Love the balls this guy has. I’ll be rooting for him. Will you?

    I’m rooting for him, but the Bengals will be the reason he loses his 65K and then he’ll hate them as much as I do as a Steelers fan!

    He could make about $60k more if did 2 separate wagers. All in on the early Bengals game then let it ride in the afternoon. (tho he’d risk missing it if game 1 went past 4pm)

    Stay away from divisional games. Form can go out the window

    This is fake/photoshopped. I just looked…Bovada has a $1k max on NFL parlay bets. http://www.bovada.lv/help/bet-limits

    Absolutely a fake, Mike is correct.

    I might have missed it somewhere, but what makes you think he bet it on bovada?

    Well, if you win, good luck collecting that bet if it was placed in an online casino.
