Part of the battle of sports gambling has been struck with luck and inevitable variance. Injuries, missed poor reffing field goals turnovers play and countless other facets can swing an otherwise absolutely handicapped game to a loss by a triumph.
Just take the conclusion of last weeks Cardinals-49ers game, for instance. San Fran was up 30-26 with time quickly running out and Cardinals (+9.5) bettors were easily covering. Until…
It could be recency prejudice but 69 percent of the audience whod Cardinals +9.5 said it was the worst beat they have ever experienced.
This turn of events??prompted me to take??to Twitter to hear about a number of the other bad beats which sports betting Twitter endured last week and I chose to feature a number of those stories.
Tom Brady had been -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 up to now. Leave Belichick with it to get cute with play-calling and screw unlucky prop bettors and fantasy players alike.
Melvin Gordon was being looked at by bettors. The plan should have been simple, restrict Rivers passing game and also then run the ball against the leagues worst defense. That didnt happen.
This game hit on a few people and they were hit by it in various directions, myself included. Id those 2 teams made a decision to put up a combined zero points in the third quarter after which 35 from the fourth to depart the game UNDER with an field goal and OVER 62.
And for individuals who were carrying a +10.5 ticket, it turned into a terrible beat of all bad beats.
Watching it is as gross as reading it out loud.
Ohio State is one of only three teams in each of college football with an 8-2 ATS listing. Thus, adding them to any ticket is a bet that is fantastic , right? Not for this fella, that missed out because Ohio State was shy a single point on a 7-team parlay.
As there were several breaks and large wins, it wasnt all bad, however.??
Theres always somebody on the other end of the spectrum that won a wager theyd no business, while beats tend to get more attention.
Have a look at this man, who flipped FIVE DOLLARS into $63,000. Unreal.
