Anyone who has ever bet money on sports for any extended period of time has had their heart ripped out on a last second blown cover. Last night, the betting god’s took their sacrifice from anyone who had Kansas -4.5 against Seton Hall.
Those unlucky souls at the D Casino sportsbook in Vegas helplessly watched after a Kansas free throw put them up 83-76 with just under 5 seconds to play. Not so fast my friend.
Despite the desperate pleas of a desperate man begging Seton Hall to run out the clock, guard Miles Powell opted to push the ball down the floor and drive a dagger into the heart of Kansas bettors with a last second 3 as time expired. The meaningless bucket cemented an 83-79 final and a classic NCAA Tournament bad beat.
This is always funny when it’s not you doing the losing.
