The Ravens and Browns played the NFL’s Game of the Year thus far in 2020. They also produced one of the worst beats for NFL bettors this season.
Monday night’s back-and-forth competition between Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield came down to one play at the end of the fourth quarter. Mayfield’s Browns had the ball at their 25 trailing by three points with two seconds remaining following a Justin Tucker go-ahead 55-yard field goal.
They had to attempt that play where they throw all the laterals. After about a dozen of backward passes, wide receiver Jarvis Landry found himself in his own end zone. He could not get out. In fact, he was yanked over the end line.
Safety. The Browns (+3) lost by five, 47-42.
Yeah, that one’s going to leave a mark. Browns bettors went from a push to a loss.
But, hey, at least that didn’t affect the over/under. In fact, Baltimore covered the 45.5 total by itself — thanks to those two points at the end.
