Bettor Stands to Win Big on Orlando Magic’s Paolo Banchero

While the NBA's awards season is still months away, one bettor is already popping the champagne as he holds onto a parlay that is on the cusp of a windfall of close to $35,000 - as long as the Orlando Magic's Paolo Banchero can stay healthy.

Three-Leg Parlay Close to Cashing $35,000

The bettor from Oceanport, New Jersey, who posted his ticket this week to social media platform Instagram under the handle 4deepbets, placed his wager with FanDuel Sportsbook using a $100 free bet credit and correctly picked the winners of the 2022 World Series, the Houston Astros, as well as the Kansas City Chiefs to triumph in the Super Bowl - an achievement they would come good on when they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 last Sunday.

That just leaves one more leg: Paolo Banchero to win this year's Rookie of the Year award. The No. 1 draft pick from the 2022 NBA Draft opened the betting a +410 favorite with FanDuel Sportsbook, and he's fulfilled his potential, putting together a strong first year of professional basketball with averages of 19.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists. His dominant form has seen his current odds shorten to -1000; essentially a lock to take out this year's award and cash the monster parlay that would return $37,707.50. 

While the Magic forward is all but a certainty to take home the award - providing no significant injuries lead to any extended time on the sidelines - it's going to be a long wait for the bettor to cash his ticket, with the Rookie of the Year not due to be announced by the NBA until late April. 

Current NBA Rookie of the Year Odds via FanDuel Sportsbook:

Paolo Banchero  -1000
Bennedict Mathurin +950
Walker Kessler +3500
Jaden Ivey +6500
Jalen Williams +18000
Keegan Murray +18000
Jabari Smith +24000
Shaedon Sharpe +50000
Jeremy Sochan +50000
Jalen Duren +50000
Andrew Nembhard +50000
