Bad Beats: Sports Bettors got CRUSHED last night in the final 5 seconds of the Cleveland Browns win over the Pittsburgh Steelers
The Cleveland Browns beat the Pittsburgh Steelers last night on Thursday Night Football to improve to 2-1 on the year, moving into first place in the AFC North.
The game itself was somewhat of a dud but we did get to sweat out a bunch of bets last night. Luckily for myself and anyone who reads The Liberty Line and our betting previews, we were on the right side of our plays and cashed not one, but two parlays.

As for everyone else, you can’t help but feel bad for them. FanDuel’s PMI Super Boost seemed like a lock throughout the game, especially after Nick Chubb found the end zone late in the game.
PMI Super Boost – Steelers +7.5, Najee Harris 1+ TDs, and Nick Chubb 1+ TDs (+800).
So here’s what happened…
With four seconds left in the 4th quarter, the Steelers were trying to pull off a miracle and lateral the ball around to attempt a last second touchdown.
That of course, did not work. They fumbled on their own goal line and the Browns recovered in the end zone, extending their lead to 29-17, killing the Steelers +7.5 spread.
Not only that, but Case Claypool’s receiving yards total was set at O 35.5 on the night. He entered the final play with 41 yards but was credited with -6 receiving yards to finish with 35 yards.

Jesus Christ, man. Just two awful bad beats happening in the last five seconds of Thursday Night Football.
You really hate to see it.
Thoughts and Prayers to Pat McAfee. At least, the Mountaineers got us a dub, buddy.
