Last night, the sports world witnessed history as the Houston Astros threw the 2nd no-hitter in World Series history.

Unfortunately, that history-making performance was bad news for more than just Philadelphia Phillies fans. Instead, it also led to an absolutely brutal bad beat on one bet that was offered by DraftKings Sportsbook last night.

They offered a bet on whether the 76ers 3 pointers made and Phillies hits would combine to be over or under 19.5. The 76ers did more than their fair share, hitting 19 3s in a loss to the Washington Wizards. The Phillies didn’t manage a single hit to secure a win for over bettors.

Houston Astros World Series no-hitter proves costly to fans who bet the over on Philadelphia Phillies and 76ers prop

With the 76ers having an early tip-off yesterday, anybody who bet this prop knew early on in the night that all they needed from the Phillies was one hit, which must have made it particularly excruciating to watch them fail to get it.

Last night’s historic performance at least wasn’t all bad news for bettors. Over at Circa, they were offering a bet before the start of the World Series that did pay out well for some bettors. They had a prop bet on whether either team would throw a no-hitter in the series. “Yes” paid out at 75-1.

At least this bad beat wasn’t bad news for everybody.
