Seahawks bettors had such a bad beat in win over Eagles
Those who bet on the Seattle Seahawks to cover the spread against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night may have suffered a bad beat.
The Seahawks dominated the game and led 23-9 with 1:13 left. The Eagles got good starting position at their 42 after Jason Myers’ kickoff went out of bounds. A couple of completions took the ball to the Seahawks 33 with 22 seconds left.
Carson Wentz then attempted a Hail Mary, which Richard Rodgers amazingly caught.
You probably didn't start Richard Rodgers, but you got some points for Wentz.

The touchdown made it 23-15. And guess what? Philly decided to go for two. They made the 2-point conversion on a Miles Sanders rush up the middle to make it 23-17.
Seattle was only left with 12 seconds, so the game ended on the 23-17 final score.
So what makes this a bad beat? The Seahawks were favored by 6.5 points. They went from covering it easily at 23-9 with 1:13 left to failing to cover thanks to a Hail Mary and 2-point conversion.
If you had the Seahawks giving 6.5 points, we feel for you. Here are some of the other recent bad beats.
