NBA bettor misses $1 million payday due to Knicks-Pistons bad beat

Pistons coach Monty Williams isn’t the only one enraged by the controversial ending of Detroit’s 113-111 loss to the Knicks on Monday.

‘$1 ​​million’ Marco Piemonte claims he would have earned $1 million for this game had the Pistons pulled off the upset.

piedmont 2 bet slips shared On Instagram, one bet $90,000 on the Pistons money line at +900 odds, the other $110,000 on the Pistons +14.5 (-120 odds) and posted a dramatic video of the game with “100 A million dollar winner was stolen from me,” the caption reads. ending.

The moneyline bet would have paid out $810,000 if the referees hadn’t blown the whistle when Donte DiVincenzo hit Orthor Thompson with eight seconds left in the game, resulting in a stolen base.

The steal set up Josh Hart’s go-ahead score and gave the Knicks the lead with 2.1 seconds left.

The Piedmont spread bet was a winner, netting a profit of $91,666.66 for a total profit of just $1,666.66. But those winnings pale in comparison to the $901,666.66 he could have won with just a little luck.

To add insult to injury, the referee after the game agreed that it was indeed a bad call and that DiVincenzo should have been given a foul for sliding over Thompson’s leg.

New York’s win over the Pistons was a much-needed victory for coach Tom Thibodeau’s group, as the Knicks had won just two of their last eight games entering Monday.

Throughout the regular season, New York posted the NBA’s fifth-highest net rating of 4.6, ahead of the title-defending Nuggets and championship-chasing Clippers.

However, over the past 10 years, his condition has deteriorated due to repeated injuries.

New York ranked 23rd in February in net rating with a -5.3 net rating, behind the Detroit Pistons and the lower-ranked Utah Jazz.

Piedmont is a notorious gambler, and recently released a bet on the Tennessee Volunteers winning the NCAA Men’s National Championship, where you can win $3 million with a $200,000 bet.

Volunteers were 14/1 at the time of the bet, but have fallen slightly to 13/1 since the bet.
