When I was about four years old, my dad let me bet on a greyhound race in Florida. I picked the No. 1, because winners are No. 1, right? Sure enough, that greyhound won, so I placed the same bet in the next race and watched the No. 1 win again! I remember thinking I was a betting genius, until the No. 4 won the third race and my luck went downhill from there. I stick to horse racing now, and whenever I lose, nine times out of 10, I get beaten by the 4.

Week 1 of the 2019 college football season, I bet Oregon +3.5 against Auburn and doubled down after Oregon was up one point with under a minute left. Auburn was in Oregon territory, and I thought for sure they would kick a field goal to win the game by two, but freshman Bo Nix decided to play hero and throw a touchdown with nine seconds left, giving Auburn a 27-21 victory.
