Man, it would be insane to win this much money.

DraftKings’ bankroll took a bit of a hit Tuesday night, courtesy of the Minnesota Timberwolves‘ Game 4 upset victory over the Dallas Mavericks that slapped a parlay for “Million Dollar” Marco Premonte — and he truly earned his nickname, with that parlay netting him a whopping $3.2 million.

The high-profile sports gambler put down $200,000 on a four-leg parlay with 15/1 odds. Three of the games were in the MLB: Washington Nationals (+110) to beat the Atlanta Braves, San Francisco Giants (-135) to beat the Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies (+100) to beat the Cleveland Guardians. All three cashed, with the Rockies getting an 8-6 victory, and both the Nationals and Giants winning their games 8-4.

All three of these games were Monday, so heading into Tuesday, all Premonte needed was for the Timberwolves (+110) to take out the Mavericks in a Western Conference finals showdown — and with the T-Wolves on the road, and down 0-3 at that. As nerve-racking as that sounds, the T-Wolves ended up pulling it off, winning 105-100 to cash in Premonte’s parlay.

A smooth $3.2 million … just like that … and this is why we love gambling, ladies and gentlemen.

Here’s to hitting big tonight! And every other night while we’re at it.
