Part of the struggle of sports is being struck with fortune and inescapable variance. Injuries, missed bad reffing, field goals , untimely turnovers play and other elements can swing an handicapped game to a loss by a triumph.
Just take the conclusion of the Cardinals-49ers match of a week , for instance. San Fran was up 30-26 with time fast running out and Cardinals (+9.5) bettors were easily covering. Until…
It may be recency prejudice but 69% of the viewers who had Cardinals +9.5 said it had been the worst beat they have ever experienced.
This??unfortunate turn of events??prompted me to choose to Twitter to hear about a few of the additional bad beats I decided to feature a number of those best/worst stories and that sports endured a week.
Tom Brady was -112 odds to throw a touchdown against the Eagles. This years thrown 14 and has a minumum of one touchdown in seven??of the Patriots 10 games played so far. Leave Belichick with it to find cute with play-calling and twist prop players and dream players equally.
Bettors looked at Melvin Gordon having a big day against the Chiefs. The plan should have been simple, limit Rivers game and run the ball against the teams worst rushing defense. That did not happen.
This game hit on a couple of people and it struck them in different directions, included. I had OVER 62 and these 2 teams made a decision to put up a joint zero points in the next quarter after which 35 from the fourth to depart the match UNDER with an agonizing??field goal.
And for people who were holding a +10.5 ticket, then it was a bad defeat of bad beats.
Watching it is as gross as reading it out loud.
Ohio State is one of just 3 teams in each one of college football with an 8-2 ATS record. Adding them is a great bet, right? Not with this fella, who missed out on cashing a 7-team parlay because Ohio State was shy a single point.
Because there were big wins and several breaks also, it was not all bad, however.??
There is always somebody on the end of the spectrum who won a bet they had no company cashing while beats tend to acquire focus.
Take a peek at this guy, who flipped FIVE DOLLARS into $63,000. Unreal.
