An NFL Gambler Lost A $18,500 Payout Because Of A Meaningless Touchdown At The End Of The Cowboys-Eagles Game

Gentlemen, there's no fighting here. This is the WAR ROOM!

When I worked at the Stardust I've seen guys lose hundreds of thousands over the years on bad beats or back door covers. Usually in CFB or March madness. With the internet full of betting info,stats,etc more gamblers are winning large parlays. We always remember the bad beats. About 10 years ago I bet 500 on a bowl game laying 4 pts. We were up by 6 with 25 seconds to go on their 2 yd line. Instead of taking a knee the pour it on coach calls time out.Then he calls then a running play. The RB leaps up in the air ball extended he gets crushed and fumbles straight in the air. A db grabs it and goes 101 yds the other way. I was in Caesars book and was shocked. Not only did they not cover they lost outright. The coach got fired a few days later.

It's not hindsight when I say the Cowboys are not good enough or at least too inconsistant to give any pro team 9 1/2 points. Not even Yuma High School. See my pick where I had the Redskins over the Cowboys last week. Jerry Jones smiled ONE (1) time during that game last night. Home field isn't necessasarily an advantage there, either - or even worse, maybe it really has been worth 3 points!
Spend your hopes and money on a different team.
Yuma High School!!!!!! Do you know their "nickname?" It's kind of unique and I don't think any school anywhere in the country, be it high school or college, has this nickname. Guess but don't google.
No, but I think there are a couple of schools here in AZ that have the nickname Gila Monsters.
Here's a hint:
1. Good parents would never want their children to become these. (That's what makes the nickname so unique).
I Googled it after I guessed. You're right. I'd never have guessed it.
