Marco Piemonte is just eleven days into 2022 and he is the happiest man on the planet as his life was changed by a huge win from Georgia.
On Monday, he had chance to bring home more than $1.2 million. All he needed was the Bulldogs defeating the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Title game.
“This will by far be my largest moment in sports betting, for sure,” he said.
It definitely was that as the Georgia Bulldogs won their first Division I football title since the 1980 season, upsetting the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide 33-18 in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night in Indianapolis. Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett completed 17 of 26 passes and threw two touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs to their first win over their Southeastern Conference rival since 2007.
Here was Piemonte’s reaction:
Piemonte bet $30,000 on a 5-leg parlay that started with the NFL games and culminated with a $1,206,956.58 payday. The bet $30,000 on a 5-leg parlay that started with the NFL games and culminated with a $1,206,956.58 payday went from betting pocket change to hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars on sports.
This was actually not his first big win. Last year, he won more than $1.3 million after putting $33,000 on a four-leg parlay that was capped off by a Cleveland Browns win over the Denver Broncos.
We may have another Vegas Dave on out hands.
