    Can betting on teams you HATE be profitable?

    Or teams you want to see lose???

    I think that's where lot of my profits/futures come from.

    Blackhawks/Kings/Seahawks/Heat/etc.

    Anyone do this in a lot of spots?

    Picked up Kings 100-1 and chicago 35-1 when they were down so now I just see who wins me more.

    Otherwise it would be gross.

    Explain to me why your hating or liking a team has any relevance either way in terms of profits.

    Kind of the opposite of betting with your heart.

    But the big thing is getting the right odds at the right time.

    On phone so hard to write in detail.

    The only teams I really, truly HATE are the Georgia Bulldogs and the New Orleans Saints. I would never be able to allow myself to bet on them, however. Only against. Hating your rival >> winning a bet imo, if nothing more than to gloat.

    I don't really have much of a problem betting on teams I hate, it's more fading my teams that's mentally troubling.

    But I will do it on occasion, except for my soccer team. It's one thing to cheer against your team watching on TV, but doing it at the stadium is impossible. Plus which it's not like they lose often.

    You got it backwards on Seahawks and Heat.
    These teams are heavy favorites by the public.
    Fade the public at the right time.

    Not talking about every game, more like playoffs, futures.

    All the popular teams have inflated lines but there's no sense in fading Heat in a playoff series...
