What’s the definition of a bad beat?
For me, a bad beat is a sudden change of fortune in a sporting event that affects a gambling outcome and leaves the losing side feeling like puking.
Saturday’s Wisconsin-New Mexico matchup is a perfect example of that level agony.
The over/under for this game closed at 58 before kick-off. With Wisconsin up 38-14, driving, and the game seemingly over, under bettors were probably counting their money.
Instead, the Badgers’ backup quarterback came in the game to a touchdown with 22 seconds remaining. One pass, one touchdown, one unbelievably bad beat for anyone on the under.
