Picking the correct winner with no spreads in a given NFL week seems like an easy task, but it’s much more difficult than it sounds.
Many people didn’t think the Steelers would lose at home to the Chiefs or the Colts would go on the road and beat the Washington Redskins.
It turns out one gambler won over $80,000 by nailing those picks along with the rest of Week 2.
Per a William Hill Nevada announcement:
One of the Week 2 entries in the William Hill Nevada Pro Football Progressive Parlay Card survived Sunday with a 14-0 record. A Chicago Bears win over the Seattle Seahawks tonight would make this entry a perfect 15 for 15 and win the $84,565 progressive jackpot.
Congrats to the one winner of our Nevada Pro Football 🏈 Progressive Jackpot of $84,565! That’s a very nice payout of 16,913 for 1.
The weekly Progressive Card is just $5 to play at any of our 108 Nevada Sports Books and on our Nevada Mobile Sports app. pic.twitter.com/poVBJ8hfez

A lot of people will have questions about the Vikings and Packers tie. Here’s the answer:
With the Bears win, a bettor has won William Hill’s Progressive Parlay, which is awarded if gambler has a perfect card of 16 straight up wins (tie counts as a win). The $5 card will pay $84,565. pic.twitter.com/D7ZG7n7ePe
