A three-pointer in the NBA on Wednesday night helped one sports gambler win big.
A FanDuel Sportsbook bettor used a bonus bet on a five-leg 3-pointer parlay en route to winning the prize of a lifetime.
The odds were almost 20,000/1, +1985562, or an implied probability of about 0.01.
However, that was not the case with the odds this bettor had hit.
One of the picks, Joel Embiid’s right to make more than three threes, was revoked because the reigning MVP did not play.
Instead, the bet ended up being a 4-part bet of +248008, with all 4 parts winning.
In this parlay, the bettor won an incredible $124,947.08 on a single $50.36 gamble.
In Tuesday’s game between the Lakers and Pistons, bettors had D’Angelo Russell and Isaiah Stewart hitting four and three-plus threes, respectively.
These two players cashed in their portion of the parlay with relative ease, hitting the over before the end of the third quarter.

The Wizards and Magic picks weren’t too difficult for this bettor.
Franz Wagner and Jordan Poole needed to make at least four threes to keep their parlay alive, but they both made their fourth about a minute apart in the third quarter of this high-scoring contest. .
