It’s been a wild night of sports betting. I feel like I am up in moose alley in northern New Hampshire right now.
Baseball has seen many a moose on Tuesday, and the basketball betting gods wanted to get in on the fun. With the Cleveland-Toronto game in the final minutes, the under was looking solid. Sharp bettors who bet the total down from 217/218 in some spots to 213.5 were praying for anything but an overtime, but that’s exactly what they got.
The Raptors had a handful of chances to get the scoreboard off 105-105.
- First, a missed trey from Fred VanVleet
- Then, a missed Demar DeRozan deep tip-shot
- Next, CJ Miles attempts some finesse to no avail
- Finally, ANOTHER missed tip, this one the most egregious, by Jonas Valanciunas all but ruins the under

There was still time left on the clock. Still time for someone to keep the under bettors alive and well. Someone with a loyal bloodline, perhaps.

Close, but no cigar.
A live look at under bettors everywhere …
