Florida Bettor Wins $5.5 Million on NFL Game
Texans’ Upset Victory Leads to Massive Payout
Imagine winning $5.5 million on a single NFL game. That’s exactly what one lucky bettor from Florida is currently grappling with after hitting an incredible $500,000 same-game parlay on the Houston Texans versus Cincinnati Bengals matchup, according to ESPN.
The game was a nail-biter until the very end. With just 1 minute and 33 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Texans rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud orchestrated a remarkable six-play, 55-yard drive that ultimately led to a game-winning 38-yard field goal by new kicker Matt Ammendola. For the Florida bettor, this victory was particularly exhilarating as they had predicted the Texans to upset the Bengals as part of their four-leg parlay.

Placing a bet on Devin Singletary proved to be a stroke of genius, as the running back delivered a career-high performance of 150 rushing yards and one touchdown. His outstanding contribution was even more significant due to the absence of Dameon Pierce, who was sidelined with an injury.
It’s clear that this bettor had immense faith in both Stroud and the Texans. As the second overall pick in the draft, Stroud has already made history by becoming the only rookie quarterback in the past 40 years to lead back-to-back game-winning drives in the final two minutes of regulation. Additionally, he currently holds the fourth-highest passing yards record through nine career games in NFL history, with an impressive 2,626 yards. Stroud is also only the second rookie ever to throw for 800 passing yards in a two-game span.
Thanks to Stroud’s heroics and the Texans’ unexpected triumph, this Florida bettor is now significantly wealthier. The $5.5 million windfall is undoubtedly a life-changing sum that will leave them pondering exciting possibilities for the future.
