Bad Beat Alert! Two $100K bets on Trail Blazers lose in 2OT Game 5 vs. Nuggets

DraftKings Sportsbook took two $100K bets on the Blazers — one on the ML and one on +1.5. Both missed after a 147-140 2OT loss on Tuesday night.

The Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets gave us an NBA Playoff classic on Tuesday night in Game 5 of their first-round series. Damian Lillard made two clutch 3-pointers to force multiple overtimes and scored 55 points in the process. After hearing that sentence, you’d think the Blazers would have come away with the win. Instead, Portland and two massive wagers came away with the L.

Two bets were placed on DraftKings Sportsbook of $100,000 on the Blazers — one on the moneyline and another on the spread of Blazers +1.5. Dame almost saved the bets multiple times but the Blazers supporting cast couldn’t help him out. Lillard ended up scoring 17 of the Blazers’ 19 points in extra time. There were also multiple bone-head plays by CJ McCollum and Robert Covington down the stretch that cost Dame another chance at forcing 3OT.
