Patrick Mahomes is evidently not someone who dabbles in sports betting.
In Sunday evening’s matchup, the Kansas City Chiefs were expected to triumph over the New York Jets by a margin of more than a touchdown.
Ultimately, Kansas City secured a 23-20 victory over New York. However, it’s worth noting that the Chiefs had a chance to win by at least nine points. Nevertheless, Patrick Mahomes chose to take a knee just inches away from the end zone after securing the win.
This seemingly inconsequential decision had significant financial implications.
The majority of the betting public had placed their faith in the Chiefs, so Mahomes’ conservative approach likely resulted in NFL bettors losing tens of millions of dollars on Sunday night.
With this triumph, the Chiefs improved their season record to 3-1, while the Jets’ loss dropped them to 1-3.
