Big Gambling Swing: Final Iowa Bucket Waived in B1G Semifinals, Hits the Under

If you bet on the Iowa-Illinois game, the final seconds of regulation were concerning.

With 0.2 left on the shot clock, Iowa drilled a 3-pointer right as the clock hit double zero, which put the over/under right on the line.

No. 3 seeded Iowa couldn’t come back from the 9-point deficit in the Big Ten semifinals against No. 2 seeded Illinois with just seconds left in the game, but the those who had the under?

You came out on top.

The last-second 3 was overturned and the Illini beat Iowa 82-71 — a tough break for anyone who had the over (154).

Ohio State and Illinois will now meet on Sunday for the second time in eight days in the Big Ten Conference Championship.

The two teams split the season series, each winning on the road. Illinois won 73-68 last Sunday and Ohio State won 87-81 in Champaign on Jan 16.
