You've heard them before. Perhaps you,ve grown up with them at the bars. They're always close by to comment on your losers (regardless of any winners you recently gave them). "How could you have bet THEM"? "What a suckers bet." "What were you thinking"?
These are the poor souls known as second guessers. They've haunted every sports bettor from Alaska to Arkansas. This crew is especially good at handicapping "after the fact". Absent is their advice BEFORE an event, and they're always around when things have been decided.
If (and more probably...when) you encounter this species, shrug them off, and realize that, in the betting world...they come with the territory.
