Major Props to the Karma Kommittee
US Sportsbooks don’t usually let players win or refund their online bets. But, Pointsbet does. That’s right, the NJ online sportsbook has rescued their players from another bad beat disaster! Here is how the Pointsbet Karma Kommittee spread holiday cheer after a crazy ending to the Eagles vs Redskins game.
So, why did the NJ online sportsbook refund all bets to those backed the Washington Redskins against the 6.5 point spread? Because it was the bad beat of all bad beats. With 2 seconds remaining in the game, the Eagles held a 4 point lead at 31 – 27. Philly was winning, but not covering the spread. Then, on the final play, Dwayne Haskins made a haphazard attempt at a backwards lateral. The ball was scooped up by the Eagles defender and run in for a Touchdown to end the game. Philadelphia won the game 37 – 27 and covered the spread due to defensive touchdown. Many have suggested that with the game clock expired, the Eagles should have taken a knee after the turnover. There was no reason for them to go for a score in that situation. Pointsbet was having none of it.
Pointsbet has the Karma Kommittee in place to handle exactly this type of Bad Beat situation.
Players who took Washington as an underdog made a good bet. Then, what happened in the final seconds was unfair. Is sports betting always fair? No, of course not. But PBNJ is no Grinch! They called a meeting of their special bet fairness committee and decreed that all Washington pre-game spread bets would be refunded in full. Both sides win and both Eagles and Redskins fans can rejoice!
The legend of the Pointsbet Karma Kommittee is growing, and is why many players stay loyal to the NJ online sportsbook. Last year, the most famous Karma decision was made when the New Orleans Saints were robbed in the NFC Championship Game. The refs missed a crucial call against the Rams, so Pointsbet refunded all bets on the Saints.
