This 5-Team Parlay From Saturday Would Have Netted You Over $2.1 Million

Howard pulls off historic upset of UNLV.

If you'd had the guts to bet on Howard against UNLV, and nailed four other picks, you could be a millionaire right now.

Saturday night, after most college football fans went to bed, the biggest upset in the sport's history - according to Las Vegas - unfolded in incredible fashion. Howard, a 45-point underdog, knocked off UNLV to become the team with the longest odds to win a game in college football history.

Turns out you could have made a lot of money if you'd seen it coming.

Steven Ruiz over at For The Win noted that there is a five-team parlay bet that would have netted someone betting $10 over $2.1 million. Howard over UNLV is the main driver of the high payout.

1. HOWARD (+60,000) OVER UNLV
2. MARYLAND (+700) OVER TEXAS
3. CAL (+415) OVER NORTH CAROLINA
4. SOUTH CAROLINA (+245) OVER NORTH CAROLINA STATE
5. MARSHALL (+150) OVER MIAMI (OH.)

Putting $10 on that parlay would have made you $2,135,643.50.

Can you imagine?

College football, where you can become a millionaire overnight.
