Part of the challenge of sports gambling is being hit with fortune and inevitable variance. Injuries, missed poor reffing, field objectives turnovers , poor play and countless other aspects can swing an otherwise absolutely game that is handicapped in a triumph to a reduction.
Take last weeks Cardinals-49ers games end , for example. San Fran was upward 30-26 with time fast running out and Cardinals (+9.5) bettors were readily covering. Until…
It might be recency prejudice but 69% of our viewers who had Cardinals +9.5 said it was the worst beat theyve ever experienced.
This??unfortunate turn of events??prompted me to choose to Twitter to hear about some of the other beats which sports betting Twitter endured a week and I chose to feature a number of those best/worst??stories.
Tom Brady has been -112 odds to throw a touchdown against the Eagles. Hes thrown 14 this season and has a minumum of one touchdown in seven??of the Patriots 10 matches played up to now. Leave Belichick with it to find cute with play-calling and screw unlucky prop bettors and fantasy players equally.
Melvin Gordon with a big day against the Chiefs was being looked at by bettors. The strategy should have been easy, limit Rivers passing game and run the ball from the leagues worst rushing defense. Just, that didnt happen.
This game struck a couple of people and they were struck by it in various directions, included. I had these two teams decided to put a joint zero issues in the next quarter after which 35 from the fourth to leave the match UNDER with an agonizing field goal and OVER 62.
And for people who had been holding a +10.5 ticket, then it turned into a terrible beat of bad beats.
Watching it is as gross as studying it out loud.
Ohio State is one of only 3 teams in all of college football with an 8-2 ATS listing. So, adding them to some ticket is a bet that is great , correct? Not with this fella, that missed out on cashing a 7-team parlay because Ohio State was bashful one point.
As there were big wins and several lucky breaks too, it wasnt all bad, however.??
Theres always somebody on the opposite end of the spectrum that won a wager theyd no business cashing, while beats tend to acquire more attention.
Take a look at this man, who flipped FIVE DOLLARS. Unreal.
