Just a quick question. Does anyone ever bet on a team hoping they lose? I am pretty bad with my wagers so it seems to work pretty well for me. Never bet big so it is really not a big deal. Does make me feel better that I somehow contributed to their fan bases misery. With this thought in mind, I am betting Clemson -1 (bh) today. This will knock them out of any NCAA discussions.

I hate Kentucky basketball. I bet on them to beat lesser SEC teams. But it would be worth the money if they lose.  I always do a money line bet only on Kentucky. I actually do quite well betting for teams I hate like Kentucky and the Miami Heat.

And I use to bet for the Yankees when they were good. I cant bet against a team I hate. I always lose if I do. Then I just hate them more!!

I pounded the Lakers last night over the Celtics that as a huge Laker fan I totally would have been ok with losing. Was a huge draft pick swing game last night with the Celtics. Lakers really need to get one of the top 4 picks

Yes I have, Wisconsin +5 1/2 today, I'm a huge Iowa fan but Wisconsin seemed like the right play to me today. Go Hawks!
