Do you bet against your faves?

I do, that way if they lose I won't be that disappointed, cause I'll get vCash

Yes, if I think they'll lose.

When we (SCG) played this summer (WC in Germany) against Argentina i dont bet on my team!






i bet on draw

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

I find it a conflict between heart and head so I don't bet on either side

Sometimes yes, cause this way I am in a (sort of )win-win situation. If my fav loses, at least I got some v-cash, if my fav wins, then of course I am happy.

No. And I never bet for them during Slams, it's a huge jinx.

I put 100 on Hingis to beat Flavia
But I still want Flav to win. Normally I put vcash on matches I dont really care bout to get me more interesting into it. Most of the time I put vcash on my faves. This was the rare time I didn't.

Flavia Pennetta

Never betted against Venus or Serena, but I've betted against my lesser faves I am going to bet against Venus @ the US Open L So that if she loses I get some VCash, and it won't be as painful

I try not to. More often, I'll bet for players I don't like if they can win me some vCash. I bet my whole balance on Nicole the other night, and boy did she deliver!
