A lot of people lost money last Sunday when Nick Chubb decided he was going to skip glory by scoring a last second touchdown and run out of bounds at the one-yard line against the Houston Texans.
The touchdown would have allowed Cleveland to cover the 4.5 point spread, but stepping out at the one also enabled the Browns to take a knee and run out the clock without Houston getting to touch it again.
Among many of the bettors who were pissed off about it is NBA legend Charles Barkley, and he recently voiced his frustration while on ESPN Cleveland’s radio station.
“If you guys see Nick Chubb, please just punch him in his face for me,” Barkley said. “I had the Browns last week and let me tell you something — I don’t know Nick Chubb, he’s a nice kid, but if he runs out of bounds like that again I’m going to fly to Cleveland personally and beat the hell out of him. I’m jumping up and down thinking I’m going to get this cover, and when he ran out of bounds, I was like, ‘Wait. Did he just run out of bounds?’ So next time I see Nick Chubb, I’m going to punch him in the face.”
