Interested to see what others do. I'm assuming most people don't have any hesitation with betting on their favorite team. However I'm always pretty gun-shy when it comes to betting on the teams I love. My reasoning: - If they lose and I lose my bet, it's a double whammy. - If they win but don't cover, the win leaves a bittersweet taste in my mouth. - If they are the underdog and cover but don't win, I take no joy in winning money when my team got beat. I guess betting the money line would eliminate the last two problems, but often times the potential payout just doesn't appeal to me. -I guess the positive would be that if they win AND cover, it's doubly great I have been pretty lucky. I avoid betting on Ohio State like the plague but the last few times I've been in Vegas they were playing a big game and my drunk alter ego has put a fair chunk of money on them. Luckily they covered both times! Anyone else experience the same nerves when it comes to betting on "your" team?
