Part of the battle of sports betting is being struck with luck and inevitable variance. Injuries, missed untimely turnovers reffing, field goals play and many other factors??can swing an otherwise absolutely disabled game into your reduction from a win.
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 may be recency prejudice but 69% of our audience whod Cardinals +9.5 stated it was the worst beat theyve ever experienced.
This turn of events??prompted me to take??to Twitter to hear about some of the awful beats that sports survived a week and I chose to incorporate some of the stories.
Tom Brady has been -112 odds to throw a touchdown against the Eagles. Hes thrown 14 this season and has at least one touchdown in seven??of the Patriots 10 games played so far. Leave it to Belichickto get cute with play-calling and screw fantasy players and prop bettors .
Bettors looked at Melvin Gordon having a huge day against the Chiefs. The plan should have been simple, limit Rivers passing game and run the ball from the teams worst rushing defense. That did not happen.
This game hit a couple of people and they were struck by it in different directions, myself included. I had these two teams chose to put up a joint zero issues in the next quarter and then 35 from the fourth to depart the game UNDER with an field goal and OVER 62.
And for people who were holding a +10.5 ticket, it turned into a terrible beat of all bad beats.
Watching its as gross as studying it out loud.
Ohio State is one of only 3 teams in each of college football with an 8-2 ATS listing. Thus, adding them to any ticket is a good bet? Not to this fella, that missed out because Ohio State was shy one single point on cashing a 7-team parlay.
As there were several lucky breaks and wins, it wasnt all bad, though.??
There is always somebody on the other end of the spectrum that won a wager, while beats have a tendency to acquire focus.
Take a look at this man, who flipped FIVE DOLLARS into $63,000. Unreal.
