Is it OK to bet on the Tigers?


Posted: Dec 3, 2016 8:17 AM
 

I ask because I have always felt it jinxes the Tigers. The reason I feel that way is because of karma, it is bad karma to try and profit off of the team I love. I'm a superstitious person if you cannot already tell.
My fiance just made me aware of a bet she made on the game tonight. I am hoping y'all can talk me from the ledge. Do many of y'all bet on Clemson?

I do when the line is right

Best practice is to generally avoid yours and your rivals lines (keeps heart out of it)

That being said 9 was too low so I did

It will not jinxes us. It will just not make it seem as good if we win by less than the spread. Now if you want to risk a lot of money to win a little take the moneyline. I think if we play Clemson football we cover the spread but if we turn the ball over a few times and VT gets momentum it could be a close game.

I'll never bet, I just hope her bet didn't jinx the fellas. I have no details on her bet either, I didn't ask.

I have won way more money than I have lost betting on the Tigers.

I can honestly say that as well if we win the NC this year. I flew to Vegas before the season and put $820.20 ( wouldn't let me put $820.17 down. It was suppose to represent the '82 and '17 Orange Bowls). I win $7481.80 (includes the original wager) once we bring home the title.

Go Tigers!

Learned long ago to never, repeat never, bet on Clemson in any sport!


Yes. *****
