In our Bet of the Week series, Tipico Sportsbook highlights one of the most notable wagers of the previous week.
The bats came through for a Tipico customer from Ohio last week, with five teams winning by at least two runs to deliver a payout of more than $3,000!
At +6247 odds, this bettor played a $50 bet slip consisting of five MLB run line wagers on Friday. Four teams had to win by two or more runs, and one team had to win by three or more.
This bettor’s baseball intuitions paid off. The San Francisco Giants and Toronto Blue Jays each had big seventh innings. Trailing 4-3, SF scored three in the top of the seventh inning for an eventual 6-4 victory. The Jays busted out of a 2-2 deadlock at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks with five runs in the seventh to win 7-2.
The other three teams on the parlay had a little easier time of it. The San Diego Padres won 8-3 at Philadelphia, the Baltimore Orioles beat the visiting Miami Marlins 5-2 and the Atlanta Braves clobbered the Chicago White Sox 9-0.
The eventual payout? $3,173.34!
“The dog days of baseball are upon us, big winners seemingly only coming from the MLB the past few weeks,” said Tipico Sportsbook analyst Brian Gilmartin.
Multi-leg parlays are a great way to get big payouts on a modest bet slip and remember that you can blend your parlays in many ways – different sports or moneylines and player props on a single bet slip.
So check out today’s betting options and maybe create your own multileg parlay – maybe we’ll be featuring you in Bet of the Week someday!
