Georgia’s men’s basketball team beat Georgia Tech this evening, 82-78, to move to 4-0 on the season. That’s not the reason for this post, though.
The spread of the game is…
Georgia entered tonight’s contest as a 4.5-point favorite. The Bulldogs were leading by 7 points with time expiring.
The Yellow Jackets then put a halfcourt heave at the buzzer and it went in. Georgia won by four points. Georgia Tech covered the spread.
Do. Not. Gamble. Kiddos

That is what folks in the sports gambling community call a “bad beat,” a.k.a. a game that shouldn’t been a winner, but lost in crushing fashion.
This guy seems to know what we’re talking about…
You only react to an otherwise meaningless buzzer-beater like that if you have money on the game. At least his Bulldogs came away a winner tonight.
