If you’ve been a fan for long enough, someone in your life has probably told you not to bet on the Detroit Lions.
But it may pay off big time for one bettor who has a shot at $736,959. According to BetMGM, a player placed a 16-leg parlay for $25 and managed to get the first 15 picks correct. Now he just needs one more win — the Detroit Lions must take down the Green Bay Packers tonight at Lambeau Field.

Because it’s a moneyline pick, Detroit needs to win outright. Meanwhile, the Packers are the -650 favorites to win over on BetMGM.
For those of you yelling RUN, GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN — per The Athletic, the bet was free as a bonus for signing up with BetMGM so the bettor can’t cash out early with 15 of 16 correct picks.
Here’s to hoping boys in Honolulu blue come through.
