'Throwing a bet' is what us 'old-school' folk call, "dirty pool". Not only is it morally/ethically wrong...(remember the old adage, "Karma is a bitch!") Why not take a probability course, research the amt of times w-evertf you're betting on, ex. team has won as well as the persons w/whom you're engaging in this with? Coupled w/mathmatical knowledge of probability/0r statistics...YOU COULD WIN ALMOST EVERYTIME, AND FAIRLY, 2!
