He won the first set 6-3 and led 5-1 in the 2nd and was serving for the match. Tsonga was +900 to break that game. He breaks. ok, no biggie, still 2 chances to close it out, one of them on serve. Nadal races ahead 0-40 on Tsonga's serve and has 3 match points. Blows all 3 and Tsonga eventually holds. Still, Tsonga to break was +900 in that last game again so I was still a heavy, heavy favorite to win my bet. And yet Nadal gets broken again.

    Essentially, Tsonga to win those 3 straight games was like parlaying +900, -200 and +900, and that doesn't even take into account that he was 0-40 down on serve in one of those games. Those 3 odds added come to +15000 live for me to lose my bet.

    Now THAT qualifies for a worst beat of all time type bet.

    Oh, and I also had the Grizzlies over the Clippers in that game where they blew a 24 point lead with 7'55 left to go in the 4th.

    Right, we all have stories, its the nature of the beast. I remember a game where the final score was changed a couple of hours after the game and the books honored the revised score, which swung the ATS outcome. Details are a bit murky to me now but it was NCAA Football and I THINK it was USC that covered when the players and refs left the field but lost ATS after revision.

    Yeah I may be a bit too caught up into evaluating how bad a beat was mathematically. Part of it is definitely how hard it hits you mentally (I doubt this one had any such consequences as I repeat and seem not to be the only one to think this was an obvious airbet), because at the end of a day a loss is a loss. There aren't any moral victories in sportsbetting as I've learned.

    Understood but would that football game I described be considered a 100% winner on the favorite at game's end? In actuality it was 99.9999999999% and the 0.0000000001% happened.

    I think it was 2 years ago Miami vs Maryland. Maryland kicked a field goal with 90 seconds left to take a 1 or 2 point lead and then Morris threw an INT for a TD and ****** up the spread I believe. I know I lost money cuz of that shit. Shit happens.

    YES. And I had it backwards, USC did not cover when the game was over on the field but was given the cover afterwards, no doubt pleasing the alumni. http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/ncf/s...al-score-23-14

    Yeah that does suck. I don't follow american football so I obviously don't recall that or how the outcome could be changed after the game but I feel ya.

    Should have hedged after the 1st period, could have gone for a nice middle at that point even. If you didn't do that swallow the juice and hedge before the 3rd, no-brainer. Or if you had live betting during periods some point during the 2nd hedge would have been in order.

    Had Denver -3.5

    Had Northwestern +4.5

    Had Boston Game 3 up 3-0. Came home from work. Go to log on and hedge bet and as soon as I went to submit line froze and Longoria hit 3 run home run.

    Lost even though my team pitched a no-hitter. Figure that one out.

    The worst I had in recent memory (besides that Ohio State game) was an Angels baseball game this year. I was on vacation in a casino and had all of my losses riding on this game. It's not on t.v., so I'm up in the room watching it on an Ipad. Angels were up by 5 or 6 in the ninth, 2 outs and two strikes. Long story short every batter got to two strikes and got on base. Went to extras and lost. Horrible thing to watch on a gamecast.

    Stuff like this happens all the time. If you are on the winning side you forget the bet the next day and move on. Losing side and it sticks with you forever.

    Brutal loss, no question.....but Ive had several worse.

    A college basketball game between Florida and Ole Miss I believe about 4 years ago. I had under the total, and Florida had like a 15 point lead. For some reason Ole Miss just kept fouling and hitting 3's in a meaningless situation. I believe they scored in the neighborhood of 30 points in the last 90 seconds of a game that was completely out hand. Wasn't a massive bet, but took time to get over it.

    Seto...I lost on that Grizzlies game as well......and I think I was in an all-in situation. Actually fell asleep when they up about 30 late in the 3rd. When I logged in to my account the next morning, I actually called because I knew my wager won and that it was graded incorrectly. It took hours before I realized I wasnt dreaming.

    Brutus....I as well lost on this game. I think it was a Sunday night game for some reason. I absolutely lost my mind.
    If I remember correctly, it was the first game of the year, and it was about a 70 yard TD return on 4th down.

    This is not good that I've been on the same side of 2 horror stories mentioned.....and I had forgotten these because they aren't even near the top of my list, haha.

    I remember having Rajeev Ram a few years ago in tennis, up 5-0 in the 3rd set, with match points on the 6th game. He lost the 3rd set 5-7.

    I was also on the wrong side of that Pittsburgh game where Troy Polamalu intercepted for a td and refs said it didn't count at the end of the game and an NBA under on a game refereed by Tim Donaghy. I had something ridiculous like 18 points to give up in 12 seconds. He must of called 8 or 9 fouls at the end to put it over. Both outcomes were winners but changed directly by the officials.

    No one bets that much on salamis.

    He should have look into live betting hedge options.

    I have had multiple losses worse than that this year alone.

    I had 42 betpoints on the grand salami under

    The Ohio State game cost me about a thousand dollars, though. That one stung.

    damn, I forgot about that one. I was on that one too. I think I've been on the wrong end of every memorable game. Some lucky SOB out there was probably just the opposite and remembers all of those as the greatest wins of his life.
