Since 1989, the losing team in the Superbowl is 5-17 in Week 1 (0-12 the last 12 yrs).
In blackjack, you’ll walk away from an ice-cold table before you end up giving the dealer all your money.
The percentages and odds behind it don’t make any rational sense, but it makes you feel better to stand up and leave. Even though every hand of blackjack ever dealt at a casino gives you essentially the same odds of winning or losing (unless you’re counting cards, of course), we talk ourselves into the theory of “hot” and “cold” tables.
Is it the same in sports betting?
