Bad Beat Of The Week: Seahawks (-6) Vs. Titans (O/U 54.5)
This game was a bad beat in two-fold for Sunday NFL sports betting gamblers that took the UNDER (54.5) and bet on the Seattle Seahawks (-6) to cover the spread.
The Seahawks had a 24-9 lead at halftime and a 30-16 lead with 13:16 left in the game, leaving those that bet on Seattle confident that their bets would cover.
The total entering the final quarter was 40 points, requiring the two teams to score 15 points in the final 15 minutes. The Tennessee Titans drove down the field twice to tie the game and force the game into overtime as both bets lost in the final minute.
Once it was in overtime, the OVER had already covered with 60 total points on the board and no possibility for the Seahawks to cover the spread with no extra point following a touchdown. But it wouldn’t matter anyway, as the Titans kicked the game-winning field goal for a 33-30 final score victory.
