Covers.com member jcoby won a $25,000 prize in Streak Survivor Thursday night with the Texas Rangers' dramatic come-from-behind victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of the World Series.

Jcoby picked up his 21st consecutive victory when Texas fought back from a 1-0 deficit with two sacrifice flies in the top of the ninth inning. Texas was set as a -114 favorite on the road.

Now jcoby is just four games away from the Grand Prize of $100,000.

The unknown user, who joined the Covers Community this past January, correctly selected the St. Louis Cardinals over the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of the World Series Wednesday. The hometown Cardinals came away with a 3-2 win as -124 favorites.

During jcoby’s incredible streak, they have selected MLB, NFL, and college football wagers, starting with a play on the over 6.5 when the San Diego Padres hosted the Chicago Cubs on September 28 – the final day of the baseball regular season.

Since then, jcoby has bounced between totals, underdogs and favorites in those three sports, without taking many days in between picks.

Jcoby matches Covers member mc2010, who also scored $25,000 by picking the Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5) over the St. Louis Rams in Week 1 of the NFL season.
