7 Days of Betting Suspense

January 21, 1979, will forever live in sports-betting infamy as Black Sunday, the day the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Dallas Cowboys and gamblers ambushed bookmakers. The scenario: Pittsburgh opened Super Bowl XIII as a 4½-point favorite, but as money poured in on the Cowboys, the line dropped to 4 and then 3½, when bettors started backing the Steelers.
