Superstitions have been a part of most people’s lives since ancient times. In modern times, the belief that a specific action determines the positive or negative outcome of a future event is more popular than ever.
When looking for a job, during an exam, on your wedding day, when moving to a new home and why not during an important football match and placing a bet.
Before we talk about football betting superstitions, you should know by now that even football players have weird game day superstitions. Here are a few captains of 2012 soccer teams who go through strange rituals and hope for good luck protection:
Steven Gerrard (b.1980) and Liverpool players love to touch the ‘This is Anfield’ sign in the tunnel on the way to the pitch. Steven Gerrard is captain of the English team Liverpool and the England national team.
Iker Casillas Fernández (born 1981), better known as Iker Casillas, captain of the Spanish football team and Real Madrid goalkeeper, observes a ritual in which he touches his own crossbar every time his team scores a goal.
Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (born 1985) or simply Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of the Portuguese national team and striker of the Spanish La Liga club Real Madrid, maintains a pre-match ritual of having his hair cut for fear of ruining his race.
Like everyone else, football betting fans also have their own rituals and look for signs of good luck before placing a bet.
When people get money from a bet, they say it’s because the palm of their hand has started to itch or because they are wearing the favorite color t-shirt at the event. Paris.
Some people think they should go ahead on the right foot or fill the bet slip with their left hand. When it comes to lucky charms, money is used by some people for sports betting.
Television is a major part of supernatural superstition. There are some people who believe that they will not win a bet if they do not watch the game, some of them momentarily turn off the TV then turn it on, switch to other channels, stop watching the game for a while, all in the hope that good things will happen for the team they’re betting on.
There are a lot more superstitions I could talk about, but I don’t want to spoil my bet on tonight’s game by telling you about my lucky red pijamas.
