Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers. (Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports)
A Chiefs fan had a chance to cash out a $10 parlay for $23,000 but risked it all on the Rams for the chance to win $74,000. It didn’t turn out well for him.
If you put down a $10 bet and had a 50-50 chance to win $74,000 but a 100 percent ability to take home $23,000, which would you choose?
That’s a question Chiefs fan Taylor Denney had to answer on Sunday night after the Chiefs beat the Buccaneers and all but one of the picks in his parlay remained.
He chose the first option, putting all his faith in the Los Angeles Rams to beat the San Francisco 49ers and make him $74,702.67 richer.
Spoiler alert, the Rams lost.
Can you imagine getting 15 NFL games on the money only for the very last one to kill your payout? That dude sweated through games like the Vikings win over the Saints, the Falcons win over the Browns, the Seahawks over the Lions, the Jets over the Steelers, the Bills over the Ravens and the Packers over the Patriots in overtime!
And all he has to show for it is…the biggest disappointment imaginable.
Twitter couldn’t believe his situation:
There was a dude who made a $10 bet on a 15 leg parlay w/ a payout of $77+k …
….all dependent on the Rams winning tonight. Yikes. Dude can’t be ok right now lol

Cannot believe that dude had a cash out of $23,000 off a $10 parlay and chose to let it ride on the rams lmaooo Jesus Christ what a bad life choice, he earned every bit of that L 😂

Prayers go out to that dude who had Rams ML on the last leg of his 15 leg parlay and didn’t cash out 🙏🏻

He has quite a few people to blame, beyond himself for not taking the cash out in the first place. He could blame Deebo Samuel, whose ridiculous 57-yard touchdown catch had to feel like the universe laughing in his face.
He could blame Matthew Stafford for throwing a fourth-quarter pick six. He could blame the other 31 teams in the league for passing on Talanoa Hufanga, the rookie who was drafted by the 49ers in the fifth round and is now jumping routes like a seasoned veteran.
He could even blame the protestor who ran on the field with a smoke bomb and forced Bobby Wagner to waste his best tackle of the night on him.
Just know that if you wake up tomorrow feeling down, at least you didn’t turn down $23,000 to put your faith in the Rams.
