Bettor loses $40k wager on Ravens’ final-play safety

A bettor lost a $40,000 wager when the Baltimore Ravens scored a safety on the final play of Monday night’s game, FanDuel confirmed to Field Level Media.

The bettor placed the wager on the Cleveland Browns +4.5 points on an alternate spread offered by FanDuel at -130. Kicker Justin Tucker put the Ravens up 45-42 when he connected on a 55-yard field goal with two seconds remaining.

After a touchback on the ensuing kickoff, Cleveland attempted a desperation play with two seconds on the clock. A short completion to Kareem Hunt led to a half dozen laterals, with a pair of fumbles recovered by the Browns in between. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry ultimately was pushed out of the back of the end zone by Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey for the final two points.

The 47-42 victory by Baltimore turned what appeared to be the winning ticket into a massive losing wager that had the potential to earn a net profit of $30,769.23.
