Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker hit the uprights on a first-quarter field goal attempt.

The odds for a kick to hit the upright or crossbar at any time were set at +450 at DraftKings Sportsbook. 96% of bets and 78% of the handle were placed on the “yes” option. We have a Super Bowl doink, and the betting public is making some money.

The kick was attempted from 42 yards. Butker had previously made an extra point. A made field goal would have put the Chiefs up 10-7. Butker was 5-for-5 in field goal attempts in his first two playoff games this season, and missed just six FGs all regular season.
