Aaron Rodgers connected with Robert Tonyan on a 22-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half to give the Green Bay Packers a 21-17 lead over the Detroit Lions in Week 2 of the 2021 season. While there were still 25 minutes remaining in a game that saw the Lions score on three of their four first-half possessions to take a 17-14 lead into halftime, it was a significant moment for one BetMGM customer who took advantage of an NFL One Game Parlay.
Available for all NFL games and thousands of other events throughout the year, the One Game Parlay allows bettors to increase their NFL betting entertainment and potential payouts over a single game. Instead of waiting hours or days for a multi-game parlay to cash, the One Game Parlay cashes during the three-hour window of an NFL game.
In the case of the Lions-Packers game, it was a particularly unique parlay opportunity because it’s the last NFL game of the weekend. And the Rodgers-to-Tonyan touchdown was a critical moment for a customer who built this One Game Parlay:
- First Quarter Points: Over 9.5
- Tonyan: 20+ receiving yards
- Total Points: Over 38.5
- Packers -2.5
With a stake of $25 and odds of +230, the NFL parlay would return $82.50 (including stake) if all four legs hit.
The first leg hit an hour earlier when the Packers tied the game, 7-7, with just under four minutes remaining in the first quarter. And the second leg hit with Tonyan’s touchdown, which gave him 41 receiving yards.
Aaron Jones’ third touchdown of the game completed the third leg and extended the Packers’ lead to 11 points, 28-17, late in the third quarter. And when the Lions, trailing 35-17, failed to convert on fourth down with two minutes remaining in the game, ending any chance of a miracle comeback, the fourth and final leg hit.
In building their own One Game Parlay (from thousands of different potential combinations), the bettor lowered the game spread 9.5 points (from Packers -12 to Packers -2.5) and the game total 12.5 points (from 51 to 38.5), bet the Tonyan would have his 14th 20-yard game in his last 19 games, and the Packers and Lions would combine for two scores in the first 15 minutes.
