Patriots miracle comeback yields big payout
Stephen Gostkowski's 31-yard field goal finished off a miracle comeback as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots defeated the Denver Broncos 34-31 on Sunday Night Football.
The Broncos were up 24-0 early in the third quarter and seemingly en route to an easy victory before the Pats came storming back.
New England tallied 31 unanswered points before Peyton Manning connected with Demaryius Thomas to force overtime.
It was in that overtime frame where Gostkowski iced the victory for the Pats and for bettors who had New England -1.
If you were brave enough to back the Pats in live betting, you could have had a monster payout.
"The Patriots were 15/1 on Live Betting when they were trailing 24-0 early in third quarter," said Mike Perry, an oddsmaker with Sportsbook.ag
. "We have two people who bet $500."
