'This is outrageous': Punter turns $8 into $966,290 in Ryder Cup wager

How often do you look down the timeline to see one of your mates post an accumulator that was closing to coming in, but didn't?

If only, they'll say. If only this person did this I would have been richer beyond my wildest dreams. If only. If only I had wheels I would be a bike. Tedious as they are, the house always wins. 

But sometimes, there are bets that sneak through against all the odds. One such bet has emerged on social media of a punter nearly winning $966,290. 

The $8 bet was cast at FDSportsbook on a 12-leg Ryder Cup parlay where they got every single match correct. Outrageous.

They predicted:

Rory McIlroy would beat Xander Schauffele 

Patrick Cantlay would beat Shane Lowry

Bryson DeChambeau would beat Sergio Garcia

Viktor Hovland would tie versus Collin Morikawa

Dustin Johnson would beat Paul Casey

Brooks Koepka would beat Bernd Wiesberger

Ian Poulter would beat Tony Finau

Justin Thomas would beat Tyrrel Hatton

Lee Westwood would beat Harris English

Tommy Fleetwood would tie versus Jordan Spieth

Daniel Berger would beat Matthew Fitzpatrick 

Seriously?! How did they manage that. There were some serious upsets at the Sunday singles. Hopefully this person will be sharing some bets with us in the future.
