Gamblers Went Crazy After Wacky Final Second TD Allows Chiefs To Cover The Spread (VIDEO + TWEETS)
Gambling can be a tricky business, as the unexpected could always turn a huge loss into a sizable gain within the blink of an eye.
Trailing 23-20 with just seconds to go in the game and needing a touchdown to win it from their own 25-yard line, the Washington Redskins attempted to lateral the ball all the way down the field. They fell short rather quickly, however, when Kirk Cousins couldn’t catch a pass throw his way. That allowed the Chiefs to return the fumble for a meaningless touchdown…unless you bet on the game against the spread, which was anywhere from -6.5 to -7.5 for the Chiefs.
Final score: Chiefs 29, Redskins 20.
Here’s how Kansas City covered the spread on the final play of the game:
On social media, gamblers lost their collective minds:
That’s one of the most amazing gambling plays you’ll ever see.
