Even though she was getting higher odds for picking against the spread, she said she spent time just picking who she thought was going to win the game instead.

The Chargers, as a two-point favorite, beat the Dolphins by 16. The Chiefs, as an eight-point favorite, crushed the Ravens by 20.

Polia said, upon hearing the news, she fell to the floor of the law firm where she works in disbelief and, minutes later, said she was going out to lunch.

For William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich, this weekend wasn’t a good one, to say the least. The Packers won by 10 as a three-point favorite. “Of course, he didn’t believe me.”

The final game of the parlay was on Monday night, where she had the Lions as a three-point underdog. She had the Falcons as a three-point underdog, and the Texans and Redskins as one-point underdogs; they won and covered. Polia also was required to pick the over or under on that game. She bet that both teams would score more than 45 points. They beat the Saints, 35-27.

An hour later, Polia, with $20 in her account, risked $5 on the parlay. A progressive pot of $170,782 was split by 17 people.

Polia then called up William Hill and the person on the other line informed her that she was picking against the spread. William Hill paid out a couple times in Delaware, where betting on the cards is permitted.

The closest game she had was the Steelers, who were six-point favorites on the card, beating the Broncos by a touchdown after spotting Denver a 17-point lead. Not only did Polia’s payout come through, but a 15-game parlay where bettors just have to pick the winners also hit. They scored 61.

One of the biggest long shots in betting history will be cashed on Wednesday afternoon when Tayla Polia gets paid $100,005 for her $5, 15-leg NFL parlay that came through this week.

“On Sunday morning, my boyfriend and I were sitting on the couch talking about how spreads worked,” Polia said. Polia had the Giants as a five-point underdog.

Polia said she has loved sports her entire life — a Celtics logo tattoo on her hip is a testament to her love of Boston, which she left because she got sick of the winters.

Aside from the Giants as five-point underdogs, Polia’s card had the Vikings as a five-point favorite, and they won by 21.

Her dream, she says, is to make Vegas a pit stop on the way to owning a beach house in California.

“I remembered that I picked the  Giants and they lost,” Polia said. The Patriots and  Seahawks were 14-point favorites and they both won by 17. “So I thought it was strange when I looked at it [Tuesday] morning and saw that I won.”

Bogdanovich said the $5 15-team parlay card for $100,000 has hit before. “He was frustrated since I wasn’t getting it right away.”

Thanks to one of the most improbable betting stories, that might happen sooner rather than later.

The against-all-odds story gets better: Polia said this is only the second bet she has placed in her life.

“I somehow drove back home to tell my boyfriend in person,” Polia said. She cashed in by being on the right side of the point spread in 14 games and correctly picking the over in the  Steelers/ Broncos game.. The Panthers beat the Giants by three. Her card had the Cardinals and Bengals as four-point favorites, and they won by 23 and 10, respectively.

The 26-year-old Polia, who had just moved to Las Vegas two months ago, got 20,000-to-1 odds on the parlay card on betting firm William Hill’s mobile site

Third Circuit Court of

Appeals, No. 09-3297.

(Reporting by Ben Klayman, editing by Maureen Bavdek)

Hardiman was one of the three judges who ruled unanimously

in August that Delaware’s plan violated federal law.

“Obviously, we are disappointed with today’s ruling,

Michael Barlow, Delaware Gov. The court opinion agreed with the leagues that

Delaware was generally limited to what it offered in 1976, when

it allowed gamblers to bet on winners of several NFL games.

Markell signed the betting law in May, saying at the time

it would bring in $50 million and help close the state’s budget

shortfall, which for fiscal 2010 has been estimated at $800

million.

“It is important to remember that the NFL tried to shut

down Delaware’s sports lottery entirely, but today Delaware has

the only legal sports wagering east of the Rocky Mountains,”

Barlow said of the parlay betting. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, in court

documents signed by Judge Thomas Hardiman, denied the request

for a rehearing before the larger court.

Delaware had planned to allow point-spread bets on

individual games in all major sports from three racetrack

casinos.

The NCAA, or National Collegiate Athletic Association, also

joined the complaint by the leagues.. Jack Markell, et al, U.S.

The North American professional leagues for baseball,

basketball, football and hockey filed suit to block the state’s

plan, arguing it violated federal law and that it might taint

their sports with accusations of cheating.

The state can offer parlay bets — which depend on the

outcome of several matches — on National Football League

games.

A 1992 federal law known as PASPA prohibits betting on

sports, although that law was grandfathered in Delaware,

Oregon, Montana and Nevada, and allowed them to offer such

wagering if it was limited to plans the states had operated

between 1976 and 1990.

Delaware could ask the U.S. Supreme Court to take the case,

but Markell spokesman Joe Ragolsky said that was unlikely.

The case is In re Office of the Commissioner of Baseball,

et al v. “We realize that it is rare that the Third

Circuit will hear cases with all 12 active judges, but this was

an important issue for the state of Delaware and we thought the

state should have a chance to make its case at trial.”

Delaware offered parlay bets on NFL games for a few months

in 1976. “The sports lottery has

already — in three weeks — had more wagered than the entire

1976 Delaware sports lottery season.”

CHICAGO, Sept 29 Delaware’s appeal of a ruling

that its plan to allow betting on professional sports violates

a federal ban will not be heard, a federal court ruled on

Tuesday.

The U.S. Jack Markell’s legal counsel,

said in a statement
