    I'm talking about extreme cases. Not a game where a team scores 2 runs in the 9nth. Mine for example qualifies.

    blowing a 4 run lead with 2 outs in the 9th doesn't qualify as a bad beat to you?

    Just happened the other day

    Had Phi/Pit UNDER 1.5 HR at -105 (Bodog)

    and Dominic Brown hits a HR in the 9th inning with 2 outs and the count was 0-2 against Jason Grilli

    That made me steam for a few hours. But nothing can compare to that Sea/ChiW under, that is probably the worst beat ever

    so many bad beats especially in the NBA with players making/missing last second free throws however I've realized bad beats even out in the longterm and for every bad beat you also have lucky cashes. So even though I have so many bad beats I try to remember the lucky hits instead of the bad losses. Never get hung up on a bad beat because if you bet long enough they will always balance out with those lucky last second cashes.

    Lakers @Pistons end of January i think.

    Took Lakers -2.

    Up 1, get a defensive rebound with like 20 seconds....Earl Clark misses both foul shots. Detroit misses a layup and Steve Nash gets the rebound and folded with 2 seconds cashed. Breathe a sigh of relief.

    Then one of the best free throw shooters in NBA history proceeds to miss to both. Lakers win by 1.

    I know we're talking about this year, but I had to throw this one out there.
    2011, I tilt bet the Dodgers for my betfair roll and was watching the gamecast at university. Got on the bus at 6-1 after the top of the 10th, got home and checked box score

    Bobcats +6.5 vs Lakers this year to win my 5 team parlay worth 3k. Bobcats was leading by about 20 in the third quarter and of course they had to lose by 7 at the end.

    Can't go check right now but I had the over in a Miami CBB game this last season. Game is out of hand and I'm half a point under the number, with about 5 seconds to go the opponents have the ball and I can't believe I'm going to lose this by the hook. Miami steels the ball and hits a jumper to give me the win by half a point. Best beat I've had.

    I remember a game with okc vs Dallas I think. Had the under. Dallas missed and dUrant was dribbling out the clock, Dallas was not fouling. DUrant ends up handing the ball over to the coach with like 3 seconds left. Which ends up giving the ball back to Dallas. Some Dallas player throws up a 3 ball and hits it, that made the game go over by a point lol

    googled this... heres about as bad as it can get

    One of the all-time classics is the New York Mets-Atlanta Braves game in the 1999 playoffs. The total on the game was 7, and the game went deep into extra innings tied at 2. Even when the Braves went ahead 3-2 in the top of the 15th, the overs had no reason to think they were going to win. But then, in the bottom of the inning, the Mets' bats came alive. A bases-loaded walk tied the game at three. Then, with the bases still loaded, Robin Venturacame up to the plate. I was in Vegas that day, hanging at the Stardust and doing reporting for my book "The Odds." I remember the buzz of the crowd sawing its way through the smoke. Even the lovely ladies selling cigarettes and candy from the boxes swinging around their necks stopped for a second to watch the game -- they could sense that something special was about to happen.
    On the next pitch, Ventura grooved a 2-1 pitch over the right-field wall. Grand slam! Mets win! Overs win! I'll let David Bridgforth of Memphis, Tenn., who suffered a bad beat from the game, take over from here: "The only problem [was] that while rounding second Ventura [was] mobbed and never touched home plate."
    I remember chaos in the book. On the screen the score flashed as 7-3. But my man Scooch, running The Orleans these days, was the second in command at The Stardust back then and he didn't know if they should cash in the overs or the unders. It took hours to unspool the confusion. Ultimately, the unders ruled.

    He was at home in Las Vegas with the fingernails of one hand dug into the armrest of his easy chair and a betting slip from a local casino clutched in the other. Lawless was feeling awfully good about himself.
    There were six seconds left in the game and Iona was ahead, 60-52, and on its way to a berth in the N.C.A.A. tournament. Lawless was on his way to a big payday. He had bet $40 on a six-team parlay and already had five winners. All the Gaels had to do was run out the clock, and the crumpled ticket in his hand would be worth $1,600.
    What could go wrong?
    There is winning, and then there is covering the point spread. It is an important distinction to gamblers, who are forecast to legally wager an estimated $200 million this month with Nevada sports books, and billions more with illegal bookies and offshore betting shops as the N.C.A.A. tournament takes flight.
    Iona was a 4-point favorite and Lawless did not panic when Manhattan’s Shane Richards sank a last-second, 3-pointer to narrow the score to 60-55. The Iona fans stormed the court, players celebrated. The game was over.
    Or was it? No, there was 0.1 second left when the ball ripped through the net and a technical foul was called on Iona for prematurely starting its celebration. Lawless’s heart sank when Donovan Kates stepped to the line and hit the first of two free throws to bring Manhattan to 60-56.
    Lawless hoped Kates would miss the second attempt to preserve a tie — or push in gamblers’ parlance — which would have netted him an $800 payday.
    No such luck; the ball fell through.
    The Gaels may have won, 60-57, but Lawless had managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
    “I couldn’t sleep all night,” said Lawless on Tuesday by phone. “I tried to count to 10 million. Worst beat ever.”
    On Twitter and talk radio and across betting forums, casual gamblers and hard-core bettors agreed with him.
    “If you can come up w/ a scenario for a worse beat than the end of Iona/ Manhattan then your mind works like Jigsaw in the Saw movies,” ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt posted.
    “Worst moose of my life,” lamented a member of the sports gambling Covers Community, employing the hipper term for being beat in impossible fashion.
    At the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, shellshocked gamblers sat in silence trying to comprehend what had occurred.
    “It certainly created havoc,” said Jay Kornegay, the vice president of the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino’s race and sports book operations. “We had people just staring at sheets, and they didn’t move for like a half-hour.”
    The bad beat is a rite of passage for gamblers of all stripes and can be as memorable as a first kiss or as stomach turning as a teenager’s first losing bout with alcohol.
    There have been a raft of them in recent months across the sports spectrum.
    In the fall, the Green Bay Packers were 3 -point favorites and led the Seattle Seahawks, 12-7, on “Monday Night Football” when Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson heaved a desperation pass toward the back corner of the end zone on the final play. Two replacement officials disagreed on whether it was a touchdown or an interception, before deciding that Seahawks receiver Golden Tate had come down with the ball.
    Game to Seahawks. Moose to Packers backers.
    On Dec. 31 in the Belk Bowl, Duke was getting 9 points and was on Cincinnati’s 5-yard line poised to break a 34-34 tie with less than two minutes left. The Blue Devils fumbled, the Bearcats recovered and, with 44 seconds left, took a 41-34 lead with an 83-yard touchdown reception.
    On the Las Vegas scoreboard — the one that matters to gamblers — it was 43-41, Duke. No worries. With 14 seconds left, however, Duke threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown, and the final score was 48-34. Ouch!
    The day after Manhattan hung a moose, Lawless — a new resident of Las Vegas (he moved there five months ago from Houston) — discovered the yin to the bad-beat’s yang. After posting his losing ticket on Twitter, he gained a couple hundred more followers and saw his predicament bemoaned on gambling forums.
    But there was one faction that met him with deafening silence. “I haven’t heard a peep from anyone who had Manhattan,” he said.
    The professionals, of course, are not surprised that while misery might love company, those who have been gift-horsed really do not have much to say.
    “You rarely hear anyone talk about the lucky win,” said Marty Otto, a handicapper and general manager of the Sports Memo gambling site. “Psychologically, they pass it off as ‘I was right all along.’ ”
    Now what separates the cool and calculating gambler from the reckless and callow punter is what he or she does in the wake of a bad beat. For Lawless, it was a three-step process. He highlighted the positive: “I was 22-4 over the last few days and had hit a couple six-team parlays, so I was playing with their money.
    “It doesn’t make it hurt less.”
    Next, he looked for a lesson.
    “It was bad money management,” he conceded. “I actually thought about hedging at halftime, but didn’t do it.”

    The Seattle extra inning 0-0 over was one of the worst ina long time, but the robin Ventura "Grand slam single" was defintiely the worst beat possible of all-time. I think they made sure you run the bases after that happened as well on all hr's.
    Nothing is worse than losing a bet that won.
