1 Fan Placed A $40 Parlay Bet On UMBC, Marshall Upsets - Here's How Much He Won

UMBC players celebrate win over Virginia.

Last night No. 16 seed UMBC took down No. 1 Virginia. Were you lucky enough to place a bet on the Retrievers?

Probably not. But one fan was. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, one bettor placed an $800 bet on UMBC to win - and that fan walked out with $16,000.

That fan wasn't alone, however. Another (more crazy) individual placed a $40 parlay bet on UMBC and Marshall to win their games.

Both did.

That $40 bet netted a return of $7,280.

Whoever made that bet: Well done.
