Biggest upsets in sports history

If you are an avid sports bettor in Kenya, you want to watch a specific sport to stay updated on the games and statistics of your team. Over the years, there are spectacular sports feats that everyone enjoys, like an underdog winning or a group having a winning streak that took too long before being defeated.

However, sports are not scripted, and upsets will happen. If you are a sports bettor and bet on a team that won and caused that upset, there is a big chance that you will win a huge amount just because of being on the opposite pole. For the fan with no ties, these are some of the greatest moments in sports history.

For the team’s upset fans, some of these tragic events still haunt them, making them only wish never to have to experience something as upsetting as that ever again.

In the 1980 winter Olympics, sports fans thought that the Soviet Union would win the hockey championship because of their experience and tradition regarding the sport compared to Americans. This championship is the classic example of a David versus Goliath triumph where the amateurs won over professionals.

Buster Douglas beating Mike Tyson

New York Giants defeating the New England Patriots 

The Patriots performed excellently in the 2007 Super Bowl to the point that they are looking to complete their perfect season.

Rulon Gardner defeats Alexander Karelin

Alexander Karelin had been undefeated and unscored in international competitions before the Olympics.
