We had a terrible bad beat in the Gonzaga-TCU game during the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Before the game, several sportsbooks had Gonzaga as a -4.5 point favorite.
With .7 seconds on the clock, TCU rolled the ball up the court and hit a meaningless three-pointer while down six to lose 84-81.

Here’s a timeline of how things went down at the end of the game.
Via DK Nation
15 seconds left: Zags lead 80-73 and have possession, but a turnover on the inbounds forced a foul on the Frogs Mike Miles Jr, who made a pair to cut it to five.
13 seconds: Zags throw it long for an easy dunk by Hunter Sails. 82-75 Zags.
6 seconds: Three-pointer by TCU’s Rondel Walker. 82-78 Zags.
0.7 seconds: TCU fouls (!!). Sails makes two “meaningless” free throws. 84-78 Zags.
And then Damion Baugh of TCU did this to make it 84-81
Gamblers who bet Gonzaga -4.5 were absolutely sick to their stomachs.
I’m literally going to throw up… Gonzaga -4 was for the 5-2 day…
Try to tell me Damion Baugh didn’t bet TCU +4

Being a part of an historic bad beat is a 0/10 and I would strongly NOT recommend pic.twitter.com/ZEOKsmMnch

On the flip side, those who bet TCU +4.5 were thrilled about the shot.
TCU +4.5 AT THE BUZZER 🤯
DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?! YES!
