You feeling lucky punk? Well if you are, you're nowhere near as lucky as one Aussie NBA fan who became $500,000 richer after nine-leg bet on a single game. The Sportsbet punter chucked $200 on a nine-leg multi bet during the Portland Trail Blazers match-up against the San Antonio Spurs.
The bet involved 8 different players from both teams, with 4 from each needing to score a certain number of points and rebounds, here's how the scores ended up:
Here’s how it went for the Portland stars:
- Damian Lillard over 26.5 points – scored 37 points
- CJ McCollum over 20.5 points – scored 24 points
- Al-Farouq Aminu over 8.5 points – scored 20 points
- Jusuf Nurkic over 14.5 points – scored 16 points
And the Spurs:
- DeMar DeRozan over 23.5 points – scored 36 points
- LaMarcus Aldridge over 18.5 points – scored 29 points
- Rudy Gay over 13.5 points – scored 18 points
- Patty Mills over 9.5 points – scored 15 points
- DeRozan over 5.5 rebounds – recorded eight rebounds
We don't condone problem gambling, but we might be reactivating that old TAB account after this...
