After cashing a futures bet on the St. Louis Blues on June 12, 2019 (my birthday) I took the entire winnings and doubled down on a Raptors -3.5 alt spread the following night against Golden State. Toronto was up by one with eight seconds left and Golden State had the ball, but a missed three, wacky rebound and then a foul on GSW + a timeout technical foul gave Kawhi Leonard three free throws with 0.9 seconds left... he hit them all, Raps win by four and I pulled off an absolute miracle cover.
