Bettor has $735,000 riding on Detroit Lions defeating Green Bay Packers Monday night

Vincent Frank

Imagine this scenario for a second. All you need is the Detroit Lions to go into Lambeau Field and defeat the Green Bay Packers on “Monday Night Football.”

If that were to happen, you’d have turned a $25.00 bet in $735,000 in cold hard cash.

One BetMGM bettor is facing this possibility heading into those two division rivals taking on one another to conclude Week 2 of the NFL season.

Said bettor picked correctly in each of the first 15 Week 2 NFL games, including going with the Las Vegas Raiders to defeat the Steelers in Pittsburgh and the Baltimore Ravens taking out the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.

The one hiccup here is that the unknown individual must see Jared Goff and his Detroit Lions head into Wisconsin and take out Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers as +400 underdogs.

Talk about the parlay to end all parlays. This would be absolutely insane.

History doesn’t favor the Detroit Lions upsetting the Green Bay Packers in Week 2

Dating back to 1991, the Lions have gone into Lambeau and come out with a win a total of three times in 30 meetings. One of those wins was the season finale back in 2018 when Rodgers threw five passes in a meaningless game before being replaced by DeShone Kizer under center. Yes, that DeShone Kizer.

Sure the Packers are coming off a blowout 38-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Yes, the Detroit Lions played the San Francisco 49ers tough last week. Those both can be true while we still conclude that the Lions don’t have much of a chance here.

For the sake of this bettor, let’s hope that’s not the case.
