Marshawn Lynch has once again proven that he’s just about that action. The recently retired running back has been making news with his appearances in Westworld and Drake’s new “Laugh Now Cry Later” music video. He made another big splash today when Marshawn announced he’s teaming up with SBD in his pursuit to enter the world of sports betting.

Marshawn spent more than 11 years in the NFL helping the sports bettors who backed him and his team. Now that he’s actually allowed to help sports bettors, he’ll be sending you to all the best picks, data, and trends needed to inflate that bankroll – going Beast Mode for your bankroll.

I wanted to take a quick look back at those 11+ years, though, and show you the ten times Marshawn went Beast Mode on the field for sports bettors. (Let us know how many times he bailed you out in the comments below.)

10) Marshawn Grinds Out a Win for Bills

  • Date: November 11, 2007
  • Spread: BUF -2.5
  • Final Score: BUF 13-10

Buffalo traveled down to Miami in Week 10 of the 2007 season, listed as 2.5-point favorites against the Dolphins.

The Bills offense hadn’t scored all day entering the fourth quarter, and they found themselves down 10-2. Buffalo would go on a ten-play, 66-yard touchdown drive, where Lynch touched the ball five times. The final touch being a three-yard score, and then he added the two-point conversion to tie the game as well.

Buffalo got the ball back at midfield with 4:37 left and the game still tied. Marshawn carries for two yards on the first play of the drive, then catches a ten-yard pass on third-and-eight to keep the drive alive. The next three plays are four, four, and three yard carries by Marshawn to get Buffalo in field goal range and allow them to start running out the clock.

It didn’t come easy, but Lynch grinded out the tough yards to get his Bills a 13-10 win, covering the 2.5-point spread.

9) Bills Upset Jets for First Win of 2007 Season

  • Date: September 30, 2007
  • Spread: NYJ -3
  • Final Score: BUF 17-14

Sticking with Marshawn’s first season, the Bills would go on to start 0-3. They entered their Week 4 matchup with the Jets as three-point underdogs.

After a first half that saw no points scored, Lynch got the Bills on the board with a ten-yard touchdown run. He finished the game with 79 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries, helping Buffalo get the upset.

8) Lynch Gets the Bills a Cover in First Career Game

  • Date: September 9, 2007
  • Spread: DEN -3
  • Final Score: DEN 15-14

Marshawn’s first NFL game came on September 9, 2007. His Bills were hosting the Broncos as three-point underdogs.

Just over halfway through the third quarter, Lynch broke loose for a 23-yard touchdown, carrying a Broncos defender into the endzone, putting Buffalo up 14-6. The Broncos would end up kicking a field goal as time expired to win 15-14. But thanks to Marshawn’s first career touchdown, Bills ATS bettors got their cover.

7) Marshawn Gets 37 Touches in Upset Over Ravens

  • Date: November 13, 2011
  • Spread: BAL -7
  • Final Score: SEA 22-17

Not only did Marshawn Lynch break Ray Lewis’ ankles in this game, but he helped the Seahawks upset the Ravens as seven-point dogs.

Lynch carried the ball 32 times for 109 yards and a touchdown, while also adding five catches for 58 yards. The man was a workhorse en route to Seattle picking up the 22-17 victory.

6) Lynch’s Seahawks Upset the Eagles

  • Date: December 1, 2011
  • Spread: PHI -3
  • Final Score: SEA 31-14

In Week 13 of the 2011 season, the Seahawks went out to Philadelphia as three-point dogs. Marshawn Lynch wasted no time in putting his stamp on this one.

Lynch opened the scoring with a vintage Beast Mode 15-yard run. After appearing to be stopped at the line of scrimmage, Marshawn would pop out of the crowd and find the end zone.

He then showed off the jets to open the second quarter, flying by the Eagles defense for a 40-yard score. He finished the day with 148 yards and two touchdowns, lifting the Seahawks to a 31-14 upset win.

5) Marshawn Comes Alive in Second Half vs Panthers

  • Date: December 5, 2010
  • Spread: SEA -5
  • Final Score: SEA 31-14

In Week 13 of the 2010 season, the Seahawks hosted the Panthers as five-point favorites. After a tough first half, Seattle was down 14-3 coming out of the locker room for the third quarter.

Lynch would score three touchdowns in the second half, including a 22-yard scamper with less than five minutes to go that locked up the over (set at 40) for totals bettors. Thanks to his second half outburst, Seattle would go on to win 31-14.

4) Marshawn Goes Off in the Fourth

  • Date: November 9, 2014
  • Spread: SEA -9.5
  • Final Score: SEA 38-17

The Seahawks were listed as 9.5-point favorites at home against the Giants in Week 10 of the 2014 season – the total was set at 45.

With the game tied at 17 entering the fourth quarter, Seahawks bettors were sweating. Marshawn had already scored both of Seattle’s touchdowns, but added two more in the fourth to ensure Seattle covered the spread and over bettors got paid out too!

3) Lynch Spoils Garbage Time for Cardinals

  • Date: December 21, 2014
  • Spread: SEA -9
  • Final Score: SEA 35-6

In Week 16 of the 2014 season, Seattle was in Arizona for a date with the Cardinals, listed as nine-point favorites.

The Seahawks hadn’t done much on offense all day, and took a 14-6 lead into the fourth quarter. After scoring a touchdown on their first drive of the fourth, Seattle bettors were feeling better, but not great, with their 21-6 lead.

Then Beast Mode happened.

Marshawn showed it all on a 79-yard touchdown run, ensuring there would be no backdoor cover for Arizona.

2) Marshawn Does It All Against Bengals

  • Date: November 4, 2007
  • Spread: CIN -1
  • Final Score: BUF 33-21

In Week 9 of the 2007 season, Marshawn went full Beast Mode for Bills bettors.

The Bills, who were one-point dogs, trailed the Bengals 21-19 with less than six minutes left in the game. Buffalo had the ball on Cincinnati’s eight-yard-line facing a second-and-goal. They toss the ball to Lynch, who sets up behind his blockers and throws a perfect strike to Robert Royal in the end zone to give his team a 26-21 lead.

In case the passing touchdown wasn’t enough, Lynch would put the seal on this game after Buffalo got the ball back with just over four minutes to play. The rookie took a hand-off and immediately had a Bengals defender grabbing at his waist from behind, with another ready to meet him at the line of scrimmage. But Marshawn spun the defender off his waist, making three other Bengals collide at the same time, and took off down the right sideline for a 56-yard touchdown.

He would finish the day with 153 yards and a touchdown on the ground to go along with his passing touchdown. The Bills won 33-21 thanks to Lynch’s late-game heroics.

You get the feeling that Marshawn is an awfully dangerous rookie …

1) The Beast Quake

  • Date: January 8, 2011
  • Spread: NO -10
  • Final Score: SEA 41-36

Never has one player put a team on his back the way Lynch did on January 8, 2011.

Marshawn carried the ball 19 times for 131 yards and a touchdown. But we remember 67 of those rushing yards very well.

The Seahawks were heavy ten-point underdogs against the Saints in the Wild Card Round. But they found themselves up 34-30 with less than four minutes to play.

They handed the ball to Lynch on a second-and-ten, and the rest is history. If you were fortunate enough to back Marshawn and the Seahawks, a $100 bet would have won you $450!
