Sports : Sports betting is a cruel addiction

Sports betting is a cruel addiction

I hate to sound like one of these espn commercials but Ever since I been on fan duel I haven’t been able to stop betting on games. I hit on 3 parlays in my first week using it then lost 6 bets in a row for getting too overconfident.

I keep saying β€œthis will be my last bet β€œ and that last bet turns into 3 more. I want to stop before I develop a gambling addiction on this app.

I decided to only wager 5 dollars on the Super Bowl.

It is disturbing how the leagues have all begun to market gambling to their viewers.

The NFL lobbied against gambling for years when it was mostly illegal and now they are in bed with every single sports betting app.

That can be the cruellest of them all and it can also ruin lives.

They almost encourage betting now it feels like. They give out betting odds during pregame in some cases. It will probably get banned at some point.
