Default Patriots Game

With patriots up 14-7 I put 35k up to win 1k on patriots winning straight up.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen and if the Patriots lose I'm going to be 100% convinced the NFL is rigged and probably suicide.

Was this a good bet?

You are retarded.
The line before the game was like 13-1. A 1 td lead does not make a team like 3x more likely to win the game. 1-like 18k or 1-20k ish would prob be fairish and even then the line is probably inflated because everone thinks the pats are unbeatable. So ya basically if the bet was made at 1-17.5k it would be like neutral ev
