For some bettors, hitting a huge same game parlay is the stuff of dreams. But for one man, those dreams became reality this week when he turned $10 into more than $1300!
Illinois resident Andrew Buis is our Gambling God of the Week after he placed a same game parlay on Tuesday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys with FanDuel Sportsbook.
Speaking to Dimers, a very happy Buis told us that this was the first time he’s won this big, but that he did his homework to hit the impressive 6-leg parlay.
“I definitely look into research like matchups, coverages, things like that,” he said.
“But I also love following game script and got lucky on a couple of missed field goals to keep the under alive”
The alternate total of Under 53.5 points was just one of the legs that hit in the game that finished 34-17 in the Ravens favor. Also on the ticket was the Ravens ML, Lamar Jackson anytime TD and over 54.5 rushing yards, as well as Amari Cooper and JK Dobbins to get in for 6 to complete the hefty pay day for Andrew.
The student, who has only been betting for around a year and a half after discovering sportsbooks via playing Daily Fantasy competitions, says a key to his betting is taking advantage of promotional offers that FanDuel has to offer.
“I personally only bet with FanDuel. They do a lot of their own promos and a super boost which I take advantage of when possible” Buis said.
For first time bettors, Andrew has some tips for those who are trying to figure out the best strategy to make sure you’re successful.
“Follow the basics” he said, “Look at game scripts, matchups, things like that,”
“Don’t put all of your money into one play, no matter how confident you are. Play the money that you have and never try to make up for losing big by betting even more.”
As for this week, Andrew has got a three-game parlay in mind for his bet of the weekend.
“Titans -7.5, Chiefs -7, Over 55 points for Packers @ Lions is my play of the weekend” he said.
