“No Andrew Luck, no issue”, stated that the Indianapolis Colts. Jacoby Brissett did enough damage to create betting the Titans on your NFL picks this past weekend a large bowl of misery. Tennessee was up 17-13 until Brissett hit T.Y. Hilton for a tiny four-yard sampling to place the Colts up 19-17 prior to the two-point conversion attempt failed. All we who laid three with the Titans prayed that because the pain would magnify when Tennessee was going to win this one 20-19 his Titans would be marched by Marcus Mariota down the field and stick . After all, there were still four minutes and change left in the game, and it might be a soul-sucking reduction for all those people who set the three while a one-point win might be helpful for the Titans.
Finally, the Titans dropped — that is what we really wanted if we could not get the cover because we want the favorites we bet on to feel at least some of our angst — and most of us funding Tennessee are left wondering why if Mariota is actually the right person for the job.
No, this doesn’t qualify as a bad beat per se but for each one the squares that decided they were going to play with the function of a sharp and catch 18 1/2 into 19 points on the home dog, how feel? For once wager such as the men, jump right off the square bandwagon, and you went to go against the grain. You couldn’t wait to smugly say,”I told you so” after the Pats won 24-10, however using Miami covering, also regale your square brethren about the history of collapse New England has lived over the years when they journey to Miami. A grin would crawl across your face once you have imparted your wagering wisdom to your bar buddies followed closely by ordering a round of shots for all of the losers that are chalk-eating.
Well, that dream turned into a nightmare because the wrecking team of TB12 laid waste by the score of 43-0 into the Fish and the squares ‘ will be talkin’ as you take it and sit . You’ve have a free chance to drown your distress.
Bears on the road against a lackluster Denver offense looked like a fantastic bet, right? After all, you’re laying less than a field goal and Chicago holds a lead going into the fourth quarter. Counting your funds? Denver isn’t exactly an offensive juggernaut and the Bears need to be able to find a touchdown with the whole fourth quarter, although the Broncos would draw closer, courtesy of a field goal off the foot of Brandon McManus.
Ah, not too fast, since the only touchdown in the final stanza would come to Sanders using a Flacco connection followed with a prosperous conversion. It had been the conversion which iced it instead of an excess point linking the game, these mother bleepin’ Broncos went to the deuce and forced the score 14-13, so even a late Chicago field goal wouldn’t be enough to find the pay. And worst of all lose by a hook!
The Bears, eventually feeling a sense of urgency — there is not ours — with 30 seconds left on the clockmarched down the field, kicked out a field target, also notched a choice. Meanwhile, those who scoured the NFL chances board to have a line under 3, secure in the knowledge that two 1/2 had been a number, and one that would not hurt them, were left with lint in their pockets and tears in their eyes.
