An SBRforum poster has won a life-changing parlay at BetDSI Sportsbook (SBR rating A+). The lucky sports bettor placed a seven team, NFL and MLB parlay which included moneylines and pointspreads. The win netted the player $150,000!
SBR: Congratulations on your awesome score! Can you tell us a little bit about your state of mind when you made the seven-team parlay? Was this a normal bet for you, did you place straight wagers on any of the teams? Were you "chasing" as they call it when making this wager?
Winning poster: I wasn't chasing. $5,000 is less than 2% of my bankroll. I do place straight bets once in a while.
