We’re just one game into the 2020 NFL season, but there’s already been a horrifically bad beat that lost some bettors money.
With the Kansas City Chiefs up 31-20 on the Houston Texans and with 2:38 left on the clock, the Texans tried an onside kick and the Chiefs returned it into field goal territory. Kansas City ran the clock all the way down to 30 seconds, and Harrison Butker nailed a 19-yard field goal to make it 34-20.
What’s significant about that? The over/under on the point total for some bettors was exactly 53.5. The field goal pushed it over, something that wasn’t lost on NBC’s Al Michaels.
Per Yahoo Sports, someone bet a whopping $100,000 with BetMGM on the under. And that bettor must be tearing his or her hair out:
Yikes. That’s so so so bad.
