You entered the sportsbook and found your way to the Raiders game. You had some experience, having won a few bets here and there. On this day, however, you were feeling lucky and decided to play it safe with the spread.
The odds seemed good so you took Las Vegas -6.5 for what you thought would be a sure win.
As time ran down, it was clear that an upset might happen as Vegas led 27-21 with just 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Suddenly, the quarterback throws a deep pass…no, surely it couldn’t…Yes!!!
They score a touchdown! You win your bet! You cover the spread!
