Sometimes it’s a good idea to pick the underdog.
Sergio Garcia won the Masters Tournament on Sunday as a +4,000 longshot, according to OddsShark, which means anyone who put money on the 37-year-old golfer received a decent return on their investment. However, one bettor picked Garcia as part of a two-team parlay and was able to cash out big time, winning $41,773 on a $60 bet.
Even if he had just chosen Rickie Fowler to win the Honda Classic, the gambler still would have taken home $960, so it’s not a bad payday either way. But opting to wait a couple of months for The Masters worked out much better for this guy.
