A $100 bet on the Detroit Red Wings in November would be worth $3.9 million now if a bettor had allowed his money to ride during the team's current home win streak, according to Todd Fuhrman of Caesars Entertainment.

The Red Wings began a 23-game home win streak on Nov. 5 with a 5-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The original $100 bet would have earned the bettor $68 after the first game and accumulated into more than $100,000 after the 15th. Fuhrman, a senior race and sportsbook analyst, suggests that a bettor could have earned $3.9 million dollars after the Red Wings' 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday if they kept their money in for the entire duration of the streak.

There have been no reports of an actual bettor who has cashed in on every game of the streak at this point.

The Red Wings will attempt to extend their run to 24 games on Thursday when they host the Vancouver Canucks.
