Bad Beat: Redskins-Chiefs finish brutal for fans and Vegas too

Betting on sports comes with all kinds of ups and downs. The most frusterating kind of all though, came last night in the Redskins' loss to the Chiefs.

It was the ultimate bad beat. 

The Chiefs were between 6 and 7 point favorites at Arrowhead, with an over/under at 47.5 or 48. Until the final seconds, if you bet on the Redskins to cover, you were good. 

If you took the under, you were also good.

When Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker kicked a field goal to make it 23-20 with just 4 seconds left on the clock, things felt nice and secure.

Even if the Redskins turned it over desperately trying to get all the way down the field, there's no way Kansas City would take it back the other way right?

Wrong.

Kirk Cousins threw a short pass to  Jamison Crowder. Crowder then took a few steps forward before lateraling the ball back to Cousins, who couldn’t catch the ball.

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed then picked the ball up and tried lateraling it to running back Chris Thompson, who couldn’t catch the ball either. And that led to a chaotic dash with the football eventually landing in the hands of Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, who—as you can now see coming—picked the ball up and ran it in for a touchdown.

All of Twtter then exploded.

That ending was bad for anyone who had the Redskins +6 or +7 and for those who had the under at 47.5 or 48. 

It was the ultimate bad beat.
