Part of the battle of sports betting is being hit with inescapable variance and fortune. Injuries, missed bad reffing, field objectives , untimely turnovers play and many other aspects can swing an otherwise perfectly game to a loss by a triumph.
Just take a weeks Cardinals-49ers games end , for instance. San Fran was up 30-26 with time quickly running out and Cardinals (+9.5) bettors were readily covering. Until…
It could be recency bias but 69 percent of the audience whod Cardinals +9.5 said it was the worst beat theyve ever experienced.
This turn of events??prompted me to carry to Twitter to hear about a few of the other bad beats I chose to feature some of the stories and that sports gambling Twitter endured a week.
Tom Brady was -112 odds to throw a touchdown against the Eagles. Hes thrown this year to 14 and has at least one touchdown in seven??of the Patriots 10 matches played so far. Leave it to Belichick, though, to get cute with play-calling and screw fantasy players and unlucky prop bettors .
Melvin Gordon was being looked at by bettors. The plan should have been easy, limit Rivers passing game and run the ball against the teams worst rushing defense. Just, that didnt happen.
This game hit on a few people and it struck them in various directions, included. I had OVER 62 and these 2 teams decided to put a joint zero issues in the next quarter and then 35 in the fourth to leave the match UNDER with an field objective.
And for people who had been holding a +10.5 ticket, then it was a bad beat of bad beats.
Watching it is as gross as studying it out loud.
Ohio State is one of only three groups from all of college football with an 8-2 ATS record. So, adding them to some ticket is a fantastic bet? Not with this fella, that missed out because Ohio State was shy one single point, on cashing a 7-team parlay.
As there were wins and some breaks also it was not all bad, though.??
Theres always somebody on the opposite end of the spectrum that won a wager they had no company, while awful beats have a tendency to get attention.
Have a peek at this man, who flipped FIVE DOLLARS. Unreal.
