Guy at work is a season ticket holder for Rangers and is always complaining he never wins his bets. He says it's because he mostly goes for correct scores and wants decent odds on a couple of quid punt. He got pelters for it at work and in the pub. He says he's going to stick a few quid on celtic winning tomorrow with various scorelines and got a lot of grief for it as a result. He claims, in mitigation, that he'll jinx celtic and if he does win it'll be compensation for the grief he'll feel from the result. Is he out of order, or is that a fair shout?

 

p.s. the poll is, or should be, anonymous.

Wouldn't bet against us myself, but wouldn't judge someone if they did. Each to their own..

Surely if he's after a big win on a punt though, he'd bet on us as they are favourites?

Not judging... Just an observation...

I can see the logic of betting against us to sweeten a poor result,  but I've never done it.

Do you even have to ask if it's ok. Get this to fuck. Think the op is asking for himself. no bears would bet against ourselves surely. Fucking disturbing behaviour. Ffs

Would never bet against us. To be fair if i didn't fancy us i wouldn't bet on our match at all.

Can't imagine ever being happy picking up winnings on the back of our defeat

Simple solution, don't bet.

Statistics consistently show that as bookies get richer punters get poorer, no matter how clever the punters think they are...........

Wonder how many no's don't bet? I voted no before you start!

Sometimes it feels like something I do might affect the result. Does anyone else get those feelings?

Its a mugs game at the end of the day. I've learned that from my own experience and literally thousands down the shitter. The old cliche of you never see a poor bookie is true

That's why the original logic of a low bet punt to me is almost the most sensible bet these days... Money you don't miss but if you won it would make a difference... That or don't bet at all.

Anyone that thinks they can beat the bookies, I just don't buy it.... All these sites that claim they  can yet they all seem to fuck it up...

Excuse me stating the obvious, but that sounds like an extremely taig like comment and is extremely out of context with any rational discussion in this thead. Are you sexually frustrated ?

Just saying.

Just asking, mate. Though I stuck up for him as it's his money and conscience and in all fairness the cunt never wins. Plus, I get his logic. I don't bet myself, as a mug's game, but if I did and I always lost I's stick something on them.

He's a genuine season ticket holder. I've gone to games with the guy. I understand it's controversial, which is why I asked. 

 

Is it superstition, or what's your reason for your opposition to it?
