Multiple betting sites issuing refunds for controversial ending in Purdue-Minnesota game
In the closing minutes of Purdue’s game with Minnesota Friday night, Purdue quarterback Jack Plummer hit tight end Payne Durahm for an apparent touchdown put the Boilermakers up by a score.
But not so fast.
A phantom pass interference penalty was called on Durham wiped out the 19-yard touchdown pass that would have put Purdue ahead 37-34, and covered the spread, with 52 seconds left. The replay showed no contact between Durham and the defender.
An interception by the Gophers on the next play ended the game.
But news came out Saturday that FanDuel announced that they will refund wagers to any customers who bet on the Purdue spread or moneyline in the game with Minnesota.
A nice little pick-up after having to sleep on a bad beat.
