From crossing the fingers when gambling, players not washing their socks or uniforms when they are on a winning streak, Boston Red Sox third baseman Wade Boggs eating fried chicken before every game or else he would doomed for a bad day at the plate, Stephen Curry ritualistically “feeling the ball and the court” by taking some shots with his trainers, or nobody talking about a no-hitter in the dugout even when it’s happening… Superstitions, rituals, jinxes or whatever else you call them, are part and parcel of sports and the sportsbetting world.
Personally, I am not into all the superstition stuff and all, but I do know that all the major and best events in my life always happen on days that have the number 7 in it. I guess that’s why I am looking forward to the month of July, which coincidentally has my birthday in it. If you wanna ride on my luck, be sure to watch out all the predictions and previews I’ll be making next month because I’m sure it’s going to be a hell of a winning month for me in everything I do.
