My sports betting bad beat story is a little unusual.
Sporting Index do a market called 'Multiple Injuries' where you multiply the amount of first half injury time by the second half injury time. Usually a mug market. I correctly reasoned that Bayern vs Cologne would be very feisty (podolski had made some comments and the matchups looked dirty) and whilst the booking markets didn't yield any discernible value, the line of 1.75-2.25 for 1st half x 2nd half looked very tasty indeed. I went for a fairly big buy with no much down-side.
Onto the match. The first half was mental. Bayern had a man sent off and there were multiple injuries. 3 minutes stoppage time. Now I figure the absolute minimum would be 3x2 or most likely 3x3 minutes or even 4,5 (as second half 99% has more stoppage time than first half). The second half continued in much the same vein. Tackles, injuries and most importantly, Bayern being 1:0 up but with ten men time wasting. There were 5 substitutions so it was impossible for me not to win.
Bayern scored in the 63rd minute (didn't matter) but later in the 88th, making the rest of the match irrelevant.
The referee blew up on 90 minutes which is crazy if you've watched any football.
I also sold goal minutes in this match. No bad beat, just crushed.
