Down 27 points and your quarterback threw four interceptions in the first half during an NFL Super Wild Card Weekend playoff game?
Not a problem for Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars (+2.5 at FOX Bet) pulled off an improbable 31-30 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday night. More importantly, this is one of the worst bad streaks of all time if you were a Chargers ticket holder.
Welcome to the world of absurd wins and bad beats in sports betting.
Each week, we’ll recap the betting plays where some people cashed in and others tore up their tickets in frustration. To paraphrase the famous broadcaster Al Michaels, “these works are important to some.”
Let’s recap the madness of the Chargers-Jaguars game.
The Jaguars completed the third-greatest comeback in NFL playoff history, to the joy of Jacksonville moneyline (+110) and spread bettors and the agony of Chargers backers, who were certainly beginning to plan what they would do with theirs. wins after Los Angeles took a 27-0 lead.
The two biggest playoff comebacks in NFL history were the Buffalo Bills’ 41-38 overtime win over the Houston Oilers in 1993 (Houston led 35-3 with 8:53 left in the third quarter ) and the Indianapolis Colts by 45-44. Kansas City Chiefs in 2014 (Kansas City led 38-10 with 11:48 left in the third quarter).
The Chargers had a chance to run away with the win after the Jaguars cut the lead to 30-28, but Los Angeles went three-and-out with just over three minutes left.
The Jaguars’ big play came on fourth-and-1 with less than 90 seconds left when Travis Etienne ran for 25 yards to the Chargers’ 16. Riley Patterson kicked the game-winning 36-yard field goal with no time left.
From a betting standpoint, the Jags went as high as +2800 on the live money line at Caesars when they fell 27-0.
This punter, after sweating through the first half, probably is yet celebrating
The luckiest player might be this person, thanks to their… radio?
Lawrence shook off the early start to finish 28-of-47 (59.6%) for 288 yards and four touchdowns.
Just call Lawrence “Mr. Saturday.”
The comeback also proved good for sports betting.
There were reports of one particular bettor who suffered a significant loss in the game.
Stay tuned for more madness!
