Purdue (2-1) takes on Minnesota (1-3) Saturday night. The Boilermakers enter as one-point favorites.
Purdue trails 34-31 with 58 seconds to play. Boilers quarterback Jack Plummer hits tight end Payne Durham in the back of the endzone for a 19-yard touchdown. Or is it? A flag comes out. To the shock of fans, bettors, ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt and PointsBet’s Karma Kommittee, the call is offensive pass interference. What?!? As ESPN’s Rece Davis puts it the following morning on “College GameDay”: “This might be the worst offensive pass interference call in the history of football.”
Purdue moneyline and spread bettors are miffed. The Karma Kommittee convenes a late-night session.
A Good Karma Payout is in order. PointsBet customers who bet the Purdue moneyline or spread before kickoff will have their bets refunded in full in the form of free bets!
