In football, few things have grown to be more certain than placing a wager on quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens. Hence, Dez Bryant decided to bet on them.
Patrick Mahomes & Lamar Jackson Is Why Dez Bryant Made Millions Of Dollars
As the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs triumphed in their respective games to get to the AFC championship, Bryant received a sizeable payout from his winning wagers.
In order to profit from that, former Dallas Cowboys and Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant wagered on a seven-leg parlay that featured Jackson scoring a score and the Chiefs defeating the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional Round. Bryant claimed to have made $6.7 million with the other five components of his parlay hitting in addition to those two.

Jackson’s touchdown, the Chiefs defeating the Bills, a touchdown from Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, a touchdown from Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs, a touchdown from Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans, a touchdown from Christian McCaffrey of the San Francisco 49ers, and touchdowns from tight end George Kittle were all part of the seven-leg parlay.
Jackson and the Ravens turned up the heat in the second half, scoring 24 points in a row to win 34-10 at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday after the teams were knotted 10-10 at the intermission. Jackson carried the ball 11 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns and completed 16 of 22 throws for 152 yards and two touchdowns.
