When it comes to sports betting, there are bad beats and there are all-time bad beats. On SportsCenter Monday night, host Scott Van Pelt delivered a bad beat for the ages between Virginia and Abilene Christian.
Truth be told, not many people wagered on Abilene Christian +39.5 Saturday. But the few people who did will never forget what transpired in the final minute. An ending so insane, even non-sports bettors are talking about it in disbelief. Watch for yourself...
I've been betting for over 30 years and during that time, suffered some of the most gut-wrenching losses imaginable. However, even I've never seen anything like the ending in the Virginia-Abilene Christian game.
And to make it even more unbelievable, apparently Virginia offensive coordinator Robert Anae accidently called in the wrong play from his sheet. It was supposed to be a run, but Anae mistakenly called the play below, which just happened to be a double-pass from the end zone, leading to all the insanity. You can't make this up.
Astonishing. Our thoughts and prayers are with anyone who took Abilene Christian +39.5.
