Surprise touchdown scorers, broken Buccaneers parlays and more bad beats

From imaginative jawdrops to actual wallet poppers, it’s been another unpredictable weekend for each and every one of us. It’s time to take our weekly walk down memory lane and fill some buckets with tears of joy and pain.

fantasy madness

Peyton Hendershot.

How many of you have just read that name and don’t know who or what I’m talking about? Well, Cowboys fans around the world know his name, and every Indiana football fan out there is screaming, “That’s our guy!” when Dak finally threw his first touchdown of the game in the Cowboys’ win over the Lions late in the game to a name no one expected. With all the guns, fantasy games, and big names on this offensive, this was the game that helped almost nobody in their Sunday fantasy matchups.

So, to be clear, we live in a fantasy world where Hendershot gets shot in the end zone and Drake London plays the role of the invisible man in his Halloween costume on Sunday.

Verdict: Two buckets – because if you were to rely on any of these players, you would already be doomed.


Tom Brady has been killing every opponent in the NFL for years. On Sunday he kept the same energy for all our parlays.

At Sportsbook PointsBet, 96% of the money wagered on this game was placed on Bucs. And why shouldn’t it be?! So, to recap, the Panthers trade CMC to go into full tank mode and then they beat Brady’s Bucs? Misery loves company, but… because we all thought it was a safe bet.

The eye-rolling fact is that if the playoffs started today, this Bucs team would somehow be division champions and host a playoff game. Rough. I think I speak for most football fans when I say I get a twisted glee every time I see Brady lose. But what if it costs us all money? Crank up the Alanis Morissette and let’s all sing “Ironic” together.

Verdict: Five buckets. It’s like raiiiinnnnn on your wedding day.


Remember at the beginning of the season when we were wondering if the Jags are any good? Now combine that with the fact that we spend every week wondering if the Giants are as good as their record, and maybe this game was a chance to prove the naysayers on both sides wrong. But obviously you all believed in the Giants.

My friends, but it’s a customs game.

Normally I would give this one a bucket because Jags fans are used to heartbreak and New York fans paid more attention to the Yankees’ loss to care for this one, but then I saw this parlay and I think we can all tears shed this guy.

Verdict: Three buckets

Moneyline heartbreak

Saturday’s shenanigans came in the form of moneyline chaos that captivated us all. Texas is back… to break the hearts of its fans. dr Quinn Medicine Ewers looked like the elixir that could fix whatever ails the Longhorns, but he doesn’t kick field goals. And apparently neither does this kid.

The Cowboys capitalized on the missed kick, driving down the field and winning the game. Well, if that last second wasn’t enough for you drama fanatics, how about this one at the end of Arizona State vs. Stanford

Instead of a chance to hit a game-winning field goal, Arizona State falls to Stanford, and moneyline bettors are getting sick everywhere.

Verdict: Three buckets poured out for all our money line losing brothers and sisters.

To the hardwood

I know, I know…we focus on football. But that was too good not to include. The NBA season may just have started, but it’s old enough to break our hearts already. Saturday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Sacramento Kings reminded us that Sacramento can’t even lose properly. Nothing beats a wild corner 3 that doesn’t get a chance to go in (until it does), causing massive impact on everyone’s wallets.

NBA action is awesome…am I right?

Verdict: five tears It’s too early to go through this.

MVPs: Most Valuable Bettors

Patrick must have nerves of steel. This is a whole game of maybe that worked the right way. It’s a big win, so he definitely owes the crew a round of drinks.

However, dinner is on Drew! While every show on ESPN this week will be asking what’s going on with the Packers, Drew apparently knew what was right. Aaron Jones delivered, and now Drew had better take us all out to a nice steak dinner. I’m talking cloth napkins, man.
