Joe Burrow’s 9-yard completion to Tyler Boyd in the final two minutes of Super Bowl LVI ultimately proved meaningless as the Cincinnati Bengals failed to gain 1 yard on the ensuing three plays. For one BetMGM customer, however, the completion was worth $50,000.
Prior to kickoff at SoFi Stadium, the customer placed a $100 wager on a nine-leg Same Game Parlay with odds of +5000:
Entering the Bengals’ final drive, five legs officially hit and one more – Akers under 59.5 rushing yards – was all but guaranteed to hit. In order for the final two to hit – Burrow over 254.5 passing yards and total points under 48.5 – the customer needed a non-scoring drive in which Burrow had at least 18 passing yards.
If the Bengals tied or won the game in the regulation, the game total would’ve gone over unless there was a game-winning safety in regulation or overtime.
After a 17-yard completion to Ja’Marr Chase on the first play, Burrow hit the over on 254.5 yards with the 9-yard completion to Boyd on the second play. And when the Bengals were stopped on fourth down two plays later, the Same Game Parlay cashed, earning the customer a $50,000 payday on a $100 wager.
