49ers vs Cardinals Spread for Week 11 Matchup Ends in Crazy Bad Beat After Last-Second Niners TD
By David Hayes
The San Francisco 49ers almost certainly broke a lot of hearts in their comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11, and we're not only talking about Cardinals' fans either.
Not only did the Niners come back from down 16-0 at one point in the second quarter to defeat the Cards, 36-26, the San Francisco defense also scored a touchdown to extend their final margin of victory to 10 points.
Niners Cardinals Spread
Prior to Sunday's late-game fireworks at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, the 49ers were as high as 11-point home favorites over the Cardinals, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, the Cards were bet down to 9.5-point road underdogs by the time kickoff rolled around.
That 1.5-point movement proved a key distinction behind the importance of the Niners' last-second touchdown, as this score led to a brutal bad beat for 49ers' (-9.5) spread bettors on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Arizona vs San Francisco Odds
Beyond the 9.5-point spread that separated San Francisco and Arizona in Sunday's matchup, the game also featured a 45-point projected scoring total. The 49ers were listed as -500 on the moneyline, with the Cardinals boasting +400 odds as the underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
For those bettors backing the Cardinals with the 9.5 points, this crazy finish has to be one of the most frustrating NFL bad beats we've seen this season.
