Antonio Brown’s garbage time TD costs gamblers $100 million

Anyone who either plays fantasy football or bets on NFL games can agree on this sentiment: garbage time can be the absolute worst.

In yesterday’s NFL season opener between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, a touchdown in that timeframe just so happened to cost some gamblers a big chunk of cash.

In the game’s final seconds, Pittsburgh receiver Antonio Brown caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger, and the score was 28-21 with two seconds remaining. But then people suddenly remembered that the spread of the game was seven points, and ESPN’s Darren Rovell summed the situation up perfectly with one tweet.

It just goes to show you that when it comes to placing bets on the game, ALWAYS just pick a team and the over/under.
