Part of the struggle of sports has been hit with variance and luck. Injuries, missed bad reffing, field targets turnovers , poor play and many other factors??could swing an match to a loss.
Take the conclusion of last weeks Cardinals-49ers match . San Fran was up 30-26 with time fast running out and Cardinals (+9.5) bettors were easily covering. Until...
It might be recency prejudice but 69% of our viewers who had Cardinals +9.5 stated it was the worst defeat theyve ever experienced.
This??unfortunate turn of events??prompted me to take??to Twitter to hear about a number of the bad beats that sports betting Twitter endured last week and I decided to incorporate a number of those best/worst??stories.
Tom Brady was -112 odds to throw a touchdown against the Eagles. He has thrown this year to 14 and has a minumum of one touchdown in seven??of the Patriots 10 games played so far. Leave it into Belichickto find cute with play-calling and screw prop players and dream players .
Bettors were looking at??Melvin Gordon having a big day against the Chiefs. The strategy should have been simple, limit Rivers passing game and run the ball against the leagues worst rushing defense. Only, that didnt happen.
It struck them in different directions and this game hit a few people, myself included. Id OVER 62 and those two teams decided to put up a joint zero points in the next quarter and then 35 from the fourth to leave the match UNDER by an agonizing??field goal.
And for people who had been carrying a +10.5 ticket, it turned into a terrible defeat of all bad beats.
Viewing its as gross as studying 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 to some ticket is a fantastic bet? Not to this fella, that missed out because Ohio State was bashful a single point on cashing a 7-team parlay.
As there were large wins and several breaks too it wasnt all bad, though.??
While bad beats have a tendency to get more focus, there is always??someone on the end of the spectrum??that won a bet theyd no business cashing.
Take a peek at this guy, who flipped FIVE DOLLARS to $63,000. Unreal.
