We know bad beats can be hard to forget. Well now you get to put those shitty memories to good use.

Let's keep this thread going and see if your game gets picked as the worst beat of 2011.

My self taught memory does not allow me to contemplate bad/good beats.... after post capping; I am done with it BoL 2 U

Ravens loses @ Jags
Patriots loses @ Bills

Home field advantage is very important to know when capping.

Denver @ Miami

Miami up..15-0? then that onside kick bullshit. Worst part was Miami then went on a run and won what, 4 in 5 after that?

Definitely the cowgirls last night...I had dallas and over and also parlayed them as well plus had a dallas over teaser....giants score 15 points in less than 4mins....unreal worst part is if dallas holds them on the two point conversion I atleast split but no that soft behind defense out there in dallas lets ny run right in....then ot would have given me a small chance but atleast it would have given me a chance to win the tease and you know the rest....

A few weeks ago Bears @ Raiders. Under 41. Last leg of 6 gamer and with 3mins to go it's 18 to 10 looking like gold. Then 2 late impossible tds and a fg when they hadn't moved ball all game to finish 25 to 20. All raiders had to do was run the clock out. Instead they threw for endzone and got it and then gave up 10 pts all in 3 minutes! Forget about parlay that was just wrong.

As long as you're doing college, Michigan scores late TD for apparent cover. FG won't do it. Review. Ruling on field is TD. Everyone, including announcers think replay CONFIRMS. Crooked refs reverse. Next play--30 yards in penalties against Michigan. Field goal. Not enough to cover. On wrong side of fix. Not the first time; probably not the last.

little voice,  reduce your risk man, be careful out there. Losing 4x your bankroll on one game is a forgivable offense but it is not something you want to make a habit of. You will feel better eventually. Do not compound your problem and by losing another G-note this week. Play it safe and dig out, you will get there.

I lost money on a few of the games listed above. I will add one game to the list, even though this game was not as bad as a few of the ones already mentioned.

I keyed New England in 4 different teasers against Indy, Pats -13.5. New England is up 31-3 after 3 quarters against the worst team in the NFL. 4th quarter = Colts 21 Patriots 0. Final score 31-24. Two Colts touchdowns in the final 2 minutes of the game, with no onside kick recovery.

Saints/Rams ... classic .. Ravens/Jags ... classic...

Last game that hurt me was Steelers -10 / Chiefs ... The Steelers recovered 4 turnovers and played against Tyler Palko - the starting QB, who was driving the team bus the prior week. Steelers won - 13 - 9 ... four turnovers really? That game blew four parlays.

Oh, my cruise ship tragedy. I had an 7 team parlay with college and nfl. Ravens lose to the Seahawks and I went 6 of 7. Bad part was, I knew I was 6 of 7 when I went to sleep. In the morning, I had no idea if I won or not, just patrolling the ship, hoping for a glimpse of the score on a monitor.  When I saw the Ravens lost, it buckled my knees like a Mike Tyson body shot.

I hope we all feel the same way.. it doesn't hurt that I lost the money I bet.. it hurts me that I lost the $15,000 I would've, could've, should've won..

First, I never like to hear about a bet having such a negative impact on your life.  Very sorry, been there, not with kids or anything, but I imagine its the same feeling.

Secondly, I 100 percent disagree with your pick/analogy of this as a bad beat.  You took the over in a Jacksonville game.  They have zero offense.  They did not score an offensive TD in the game.  I don't care if they had 40 points in the first half.  They can't score, and their D is solid (or was at that point), v. a Houston team with the League's top D, and top rushing O(speeds the clock up), the game was not going to be competitive unless JAX scores early by a fluke Defensive TD (50 yd fumble recovery).  Houston was going to get up, run the ball, and play Def v. Blaine Gabbert. 

I'm sorry you lost.  I just disagree with your pick.  My bad beat is......

Carolina +13 v. Detroit

Carolina up 24-7

Carolina tied 35-35 with 4 minutes left.

Carolina has the ball down 7 now 2:30 left. 

Detroit, attempting to run the clock out, Carolina 1 timeout.  Game over with a tackle or first down.  Kevin Smith (who hasn't gotten a first down in 3 years, and the Lions couldn't run the ball since 1999 and will not be attempting a pass the rest of the day) breaks one into the end zone and wins by 14.  Outscoring Carolina 38-11 to end the game.

The more I think about it.  I'm changing it to

PITT v. COLTS   Pitt -3 First half.

Pitt up 10-0 with 2 minutes left in the half.  Verse the COLTS!

Pitt HAS the ball at midfield.  2 minutes left
Rothlisberger gets sacked,
fumble, recovery, runs for a TD. 
Now 10-7 1:45 left.  Still a push right? 

Pitt runs next play from their 25. 
Rothlisberger throws a pick, at the 45. 
2 plays later. 
Colts TD.  THE COLTS!!!!!
In 4 plays the STEELERS went from having ball at 50 up-10-0, with TWO MINUTES LEFT to down 14-10.  They were playing the worst team in NFL history this side of Detroit 2009.

NFL stat that got thrown around was that the team that scored 60+ points had a losing record in the following game. Of course, I learned that after the fact.

 

This was my 4th game I need on a 4 team teaser. I had baltimore -2.5. I would have won $800 instead I lost $400

without Jones-Drew this team wouldn't score a single point all year

Blaine Gabbert is worse then Ryan Leaf

Ravens getting stomped by Tenn right at the beginning of the year (Week 2). The only logical explanation for that game I have heard is Ravens simply did not show up after stomping the Steelers.

Also any Bengals game weeks 1-6, lol. Those guy. Now they're finally playing like garbage, only after ruining my season bet.

I have a bad beat on a prop bet (possibly). Before the season started i took Forte to rush for over 1000.5 yards for the season. He was having a monster season. Going into week 12 i needed him to get 16 more yards rushing, he got 12 then got hurt. They say he may come back for a game or two this year, but i really dont think he will. If he doesnt this is my bad beat.

Without a doubt the worst bad beat this year was the chargers vs chiefs game on halloweenn with the rivers fumble in field goal range. Granted that field goal would have just given me a push but that fumble cost me 5 units !!!

I have been getting screwed since Favre threw that pick 6 early last season. I can relate to all these NFL losses. Gambling is all luck anything can happen. Tebow coming back on Miami. I am a huge Dolphin fan and that was awful watching. Up 15-0 with 3min left and loosing to a QB who has the throwing motion of a girl throwing with her wrong hand. Rivers fumbling the snap was pretty bad too especially because I tried to reclaim my losses from the previous Sunday.
