    Furious gamblers slam the Eagles for the way they failed to cover the spread

    This is absolutely a brutal way to lose money if you're a gambler.

    On Monday night, the Eagles were up 13-10 with under 30 seconds remaining. Eventually, with three seconds on the clock, the Raiders attempted a bunch of failed laterals. Defensive end Derek Barnett scooped up a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown.

    That got the score to 19-10. The spread for many folks was either Eagles -9.5 or -10. So countless hopes rested on the extra point that Philly would kick. Except they didn't kick it. Head coach Doug Pederson opted to be a good sport and take a knee instead.

    Another reason in the very long list of reasons why betting on sports is fool's folly.
