In an annual Thanksgiving tradition, gamblers everywhere were forced to live and die with their bets while their families looked on with great curiosity. Anyone who bet the spread (DAL -10) or total (45.5) in New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys rode that roller coaster down to the wire. Salvation or damnation finally came with eight seconds remaining when Daniel Jones connected with Richie James for a one-yard touchdown pass to make it 28-20.
Dallas would recover the onside kick and take a knee to end things as euphoria or deep despair set in, depending on which tickets were being held. Gambling remains an imperfect science, often flipping on a dime or meaningless touchdown. You gotta love it. Or hate it.
