I learned long ago not to bet on games with my team playing. Way to hard to be objective.

Yep that is very true. It goes both ways as well. I won't bet for or against the steelers.

Your thoughts are similar to most people but I look at it just the opposite. If there is any team that I root for I probably watch more of their games than any other teams. With that in mind I think I know the team very well and think I can make better wagers on or against them. I make as many wagers against my teams as I do on them,

For me that is the same except I also listen to a lot of sports talk. I think listening to the local talk shows give me a false sense.

kewlj-

It's obvious that you and I are the ONLY sports bettors that ever lose. Everyone else on internet forums and social media sites pick nothing but winners. Of course, we find out who they picked and how much they bet AFTER the game is over.

I lost money on the Eagles last night too. I made a $100 in-game bet: Eagles +7.5 after Arizona went up 7-0.

And, proof that I enjoy getting kicked in the nuts- I just bet another $100 on Eagles -3 against Redskins day after Christmas.

I lost every straight bet I made this season on NFL.... Seahawks early and then against the lions when they had their rally after their bye week.

I do terrible picking NFL games. I probably made 35 bets this year and won about 12 of them.

You made a prediction prior to the game starting, put thought into it and it didnt work out. More that other people do, better luck next time.
