1. Ravens/Saints Over 49:

Thanks to a late score by the Ravens, the score was assumed to be 24-24 heading into overtime. The over was going to hit. All that needed to happen was a simple extra point by Justin Tucker. The definition of a stone-cold lock, until it wasn’t:

2. Purdue/Ohio State Under 66.5:

It was 21-6 heading into the 4th quarter. Then all hell broke loose:

What put it over? A pick-six of course:

3. Syracuse/North Carolina Under 67:

I don’t think there is a worse feeling than having an under and slowly watch an OT come to life. That’s what happened in the Syracuse-North Carolina game. 27-27 at the end of the 4th. 2OT’s later, the total was over. Never bet the under.

4. Chiefs/Bengals Under 56:

This was the talk of Twitter last night. Everybody wanted Andy Reid’s head.

-Quarter: 4th

-Time: 4:21

-Down: 4th & 4 on Cincinnati’s 5-yard line

-Total: 55

Instead of kicking the field goal, Andy Reid ran it with Spencer Ware.

I thought the overreaction to this was bananas. Yes, it was a gut punch. Yes, it was a bad beat because the Chiefs & Bengals only scored 7 points in the 4th quarter. BUTTTTTT you know how many head coaches in the history of the NFL kick a field goal up 35 in the 4th quarter? Not many. Nottttt many.

5. Navy +12.5

This one was WILD. With 36 seconds left, Houston had the ball inside Navy territory. They were up 49-30. No way they’d blow it, right?




And what did Navy do?!? Go for two:

Kansas & Texas Tech needed 28 points to go over the total on Saturday. Here’s a look at the final play to secure the over (NSFW):
