It's always fun to look at improbable sports accomplishments and say, "If only I had bet on it, I'd be so rich!" Leicester City's 2015 Premier League title at 5,000-to-1 odds certainly comes to mind - that was easy money.

But let's say - in some crazy alternate reality - that you saw the Cleveland Indians' AL-record 21-game win streak coming and you decided to bet just $100 at the start. How much money would you have today? Well, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks, you'd be a millionaire.

Francona refuses to talk to ‘bad luck’ friend during winning streak

  Francona refuses to talk to ‘bad luck’ friend during winning streak The Cleveland Indians tied an American League record with their 20th consecutive win on Tuesday night, and manager Terry Francona has one friend he refuses to share the excitement with — at least in person. Following his team’s 2-0 win over the Detroit Tigers, Francona told reporters he has a friend who is considered “notoriously bad luck.” He’s willing to exchange text messages with said friend, but that’s as far as it goes.

Via the R.J. Bell, if some bettor had hypothetically placed a $100 bet on the Indians on Aug. 24 and let that bet ride through Sept. 13, this bettor would currently have $1,179,048. He broke down the bets in an incredible game-by-game chart.

The concept of "letting it ride" is basically an ongoing parlay. So while this bettor started with a $100 bet on Game 1, by Game 21, he or she would be putting $884,286 on the line. That would be a ridiculously risky - and borderline insane - thing to do when you started at $100. This bettor would risk losing out on everything with an Indians loss.
