Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
In December of 2020 I had the Ravens -3 against the Browns. They took the lead 45-42 with two seconds to go. When the Browns go the ball back they attempted a number of laterals on their final play. The last lateral was to Jarvis Landry who was tackled in his own end zone for a safety. Making the final score 47-42 and covering the spread. Overall, the game was thrilling and wild. Then getting the cover was just icing on the cake.
Most Heartbreaking Bet
I have blocked out many of my bad beats but my most recent one left a wound that is still fresh. I had over 54 in the Cincinnati - Tulsa game. I needed one score with eight minutes to go. After the Bearcats drive stalled. Tulsa then drove down to field where they were stopped on the one yard line and turned it over on downs. They then got another opportunity after Desmond Ridder fumbled on his own two. Tulsa would once again fail to score with goal to go.
