About 15 years ago I was in a sports book late one night and a buddy showed me a soon to be losing ticket he had. It was on a college basketball game and he had the under on the total which was 157. There was almost 5 minutes left in the game and the score was 79-77 for 156 total. The two teams scored not one point the rest of the game despite being high scoring offenses in a close game that featured many trips to the foul line by both teams.

The guy was just giggling uncontrollably when he got up after the game and cashed his ticket. I still can't believe that actually happened.
