The wager was put on Dan Hooker over Dustin Poirier in the UFC Fight Night main event.
The bet would have a payout of $200,000 if Hooker was able to pull off the upset.
He won the first two rounds but dropped the last three as the fight ended with a unanimous decision of a Poirier victory.
All sports bettors understand the risk of losing that much money that comes with gambling, bettors continue to wager in hopes of winning a big money bet like a Las Vegas sportsbook bettor did on Sunday.
The Bellagio bettor was able to turn $250 into $137,107.30 after winning a 10-team parlay wager on Korean and Chinese baseball.
Winning 10-Team Parlay
- LG Twins (-185)
- LGTwins-SK Wyverns Under 10 (-115)
- NC Dinos (-110)
- NC Dinos-Doosan Bears Under 9 (-115)
- Uni Lions (+150)
- Kiwoom Heroes (-105)
- Kiwoom Heroes-KIA Tigers Under 8½ (-125)
- KT Wiz Suwon-Hanwha Eagles Over 9½ (-115)
- Lions-Rakuten Monkeys Under 15 (-105)
- Lotte Giants (-150)
There were five sides and five totals bet in the winning parlay bet. The standard chances of a bettor winning a 10- game parlay, if all the bet lines are -110, are 300 to 1.
Clearly, this time, the luck was in the bettor’s favor and could possibly look to take advantage of betting on the MLB season with an increased bankroll.
