In Season 14 of ABC's "The Bachelorette," Blake Horstmann made it all the way to the final round, only to not receive the final rose from leading lady Becca Kufrin at the time.
Now, Horstmann has a different type of opportunity to be in control, but not with a reality show. Instead, Horstmann has perhaps an even more difficult decision than finding love: to let it ride, or cash out on a parlay ticket.
So, will Horstmann 'follow his heart," and accept his final bet? Or will he walk away and cash out.
According to WynnBET Communications, Horstmann has hit on these four legs of a five-team parlay at WynnBET Sportsbook.
- Kansas City Chiefs moneyline: -330
- Tennessee Titans moneyline: +280
- Los Angeles Chargers moneyline: -115
- Arizona Cardinals moneyline: +195
All he has left is the Chicago Bears, currently a 6.5-point road underdog against the Pittsburgh Steelers and a moneyline play of +230, meaning a traditional bet would pay out $230 on $100.
Right now, his $50 parlay bet would pay out at odds of +9803 for a payout of $4,951.52. But, if he chooses to walk away, he would still receive $1,223.04 on his $50 bet.
When WynnBET reached out to Horstmann asking what his plans are, the reality TV star responded by saying he's likely to roll the dice and go for the big pay day, "Normally I would cash out but this week has been wild with upsets."
Can the Bears Continue a Huge Upset Weekend?
With the Bills, Rams and Cowboys all losing outright as either double digit or more than touchdown favorites, he may be on the right side of this play.
Unfortunately, from the perspective of this Bears fan, I have a difficult time seeing another upset happen. Chicago's once top 10 defense has regressed, and their top pass rusher, Khalil Mack is out vs. the Steelers. Chicago is also second-last in the NFL in points scored and dead last in overall offensive yards.
However, our Reed Wallach was bullish on Chicago heading into MNF on Monday's episode of 'Bet & Breakfast,' also believing that they are a live underdog against the Steelers.
I'll be rooting for Blake to get that bread and for the Bears to not only cover, but win. Then again, if I were holding his ticket, I'd be sprinting to cash out before kick-off.
