Sports / Re: AFCON 2023: Nigeria 1:1 Equatorial Guinea Match Highlight by PrincessJoanna: 9:34am On Jan 18

Victor Osimhen scored a first-half equaliser but Nigeria were held to a 1-1 draw in their Africa Cup of Nations Group A opener against Equatorial Guinea in a steamy Abidjan on Sunday, unable to turn their pressure into three points. Iban Salvador netted a surprise opener for Equatorial Guinea against the run of play with a well-worked goal, but the lead lasted only two minutes before Napoli forward Osimhen headed Nigeria level. The west African side dominated their chances after that but found Equatorial Guinea goalkeeper Jesus Owono in fine form as he made several outstanding saves to go with some poor finishing. Nigeria next meet hosts Ivory Coast in a potentially crucial pool clash on Thursday, while Equatorial Guinea face Guinea-Bissau, who lost 2-0 to the Ivorians in Saturday’s tournament opening game.

The Super Eagles are among the favourites to win the AFCON title in 2024 and were widely expected to follow hosts Ivory Coast by beginning their tournament with a comfortable win against a team 46 places below them in FIFA's rankings. Yet their performance in the sweltering heat of Abidjan's Olympic Stadium in Ebimpe was not one the handful of Super Eagles fans who made the trip will have particularly enjoyed. A lack of incisive attacking play and a couple of bad misses from star striker Victor Osimhen means they have now won just one of their past six games in all competitions.

Victor Osimhen did at least get on the scoresheet to cancel out a shock opener from Equatorial Guinea, who are competing in just their fourth AFCON finals and were held to a 1-1 draw by 192nd-ranked Djibouti five days ago in a pre-tournament friendly. Ivan Salvador gave the unfancied nation the lead after 36 minutes, producing a composed finish from the edge of the box after Osimhen and Zaidu Sanusi had missed presentable openings. Their advantage was short-lived, Osimhen nodding home Ademola Lookman's cross barely two minutes later to level the scores, but that was as good as it got for Nigeria, who were persistently thwarted by Alaves goalkeeper Jesus Owono.

Osimhen spurned the best chance of the second half, racing through onto Alex Iwobi's through ball only to drag his finish wide. The Napoli star will have to sharpen up if Nigeria are going to mount a serious challenge at these finals, not least given a meeting with the hosts is coming up in just four days' time.

Sports / Re: Psychological Factors That Influence Sports Betting by PrincessJoanna: 8:50am On Oct 04, 2023

Sports betting is influenced by a variety of psychological factors that can impact an individual's decision-making and behavior. These factors can contribute to both the appeal of sports betting and the potential for problem gambling. Here are some key psychological factors that influence sports betting:

Risk Perception: People have different tolerances for risk. Some individuals are naturally more risk-averse, while others are risk-takers. This can influence the types of bets they place and the amount of money they wager.
Overconfidence: Overconfidence bias can lead individuals to believe they have more knowledge and skill in predicting sports outcomes than they actually do. This can result in overestimating their chances of winning and making riskier bets.
Confirmation Bias: People tend to seek out information that confirms their existing beliefs and ignore information that contradicts them. In sports betting, this can lead individuals to focus on statistics and data that support their chosen bets and disregard conflicting information.
Availability Heuristic: This cognitive bias occurs when people rely on readily available information when making decisions. In sports betting, bettors may place too much importance on recent or memorable events, such as a team's recent wins or losses, without considering more comprehensive data.
Anchoring: People often anchor their decisions based on initial information. For sports betting, this might involve being influenced by the opening odds or an initial assessment of a game, even if new information becomes available.
Emotional Attachment: Emotional attachment to a team or athlete can cloud judgment. Fans may bet on their favorite team or athlete, even when the odds are not in their favor, due to emotional bias.
Loss Aversion: Many individuals are more averse to losses than they are motivated by potential gains. This can lead to risk-averse behavior in sports betting, such as cashing out early to avoid potential losses.
Peer Pressure and Social Influence: Social factors, such as peer pressure or the desire to fit in with a group of friends who bet on sports, can lead people to engage in sports betting even if they wouldn't otherwise.
The Illusion of Control: Some individuals may believe they have more control over the outcome of sports events than they actually do, leading them to overestimate their ability to predict outcomes.
Desire for Excitement and Entertainment: Sports betting can be exciting and add an extra layer of entertainment to watching sports. This desire for excitement can lead people to bet more frequently or with larger stakes.

It's important to note that not everyone who engages in sports betting will be influenced by these factors to the same degree, and some individuals may be more susceptible to problem gambling than others. Awareness of these psychological factors can help individuals make more informed decisions when it comes to sports betting and seek help if they believe they are developing a gambling problem. Responsible gambling and setting limits on betting expenditures are important strategies for minimizing the negative impact of these psychological factors.

Sports / Re: Jamie Vardy: Leicester's Decade Of Ups And Downs by PrincessJoanna: 2:44pm On Sep 26, 2023

Jamie Richard Vardy is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for and captains EFL Championship club Leicester City. After being released by Sheffield Wednesday at the age of 16, Vardy began his senior career with Stocksbridge Park Steels. Jamie Vardy talks through his rollercoaster 10 years with Leicester that saw a Premier League title, a relegation and some 'questionable' haircuts.
When Leicester City signed Jamie Vardy from Fleetwood for what was, and still is, a record £1m for a non-league player, nobody would've predicted the following decade he and the club would endure. However, it wasn't always goals, records and trophies for the Leicester number nine. Ten years ago, Vardy was on the wrong end of one of the most extraordinary endings to a football match, the infamous 'Troy Deeney' goal in the play-off semi-finals against Watford. Starting that game on the bench alongside a recognizable face.

Among the downs that have come during his Leicester career, the loss to Watford was an early one for Vardy. But for him it epitomizes his time with the club, using setbacks as inspiration. "That game gave us the motivation to want to succeed the season afterwards," he recalls. "I remember coming back the following pre-season, you do the testing and if you're not fit enough, you don't see the footballs for a week. Every single one of us came back fit as they could, so we were ready to go." Haircuts seemed to signify key moments in Vardy's career, with his first trophy with the club being one of those occasions.

Despite not playing as many minutes as he once did for the Foxes, Vardy is still keen to make an impact both on and off the pitch. With a flurry of young players breaking through and joining on loan, he feels it is important to be there to influence the younger players in the side. 'All that side is important, I'm always there to chat to the young ones'," he says. "It's how you act around the place, that's what's important. Be normal with everyone. I'm not going to be a big head round the place. I'm just me." Currently second in the Championship table, Vardy will be looking to do his bit to add another chapter to this extraordinary decade with the Foxes this season.

I was introduced to iLOTBet by an office colleague of mine who was constantly on the website. One day i asked him why he was always on iLOTBet and he told me about one punter`s league competition where the winners will be given an iPhone. So i decided to open an account too and try my luck.
Even though none of us won at the end of the competition, I continued betting with them. I was making deposits and withdrawals without any issues until August this year.
The problem started when i received an alert from iLOT bet when i did not make any withdrawal. I login into my account and my balance was intact. I kept the money and after two days, my colleague came to me and asked me if i received any payment from iLotbet, I could have told him no but since i wanted to be honest, I said yes. Then he told me that payment is the withdrawal he made from his iLOTBet account that landed in my bank account. I did not believe him until he showed me the withdrawal request on his account transfers. He also showed me the emails he wrote to iLOT when he did not receive the withdraw he made and the replies from iLOT saying they have paid. iLOTBet demanded that he produce his statement of account when he insisted that he has not received the alert and afterward, they decided to query their system and discovered that the money has landed in another punter`s account which is mine. Myself and my colleague have complete different names, he has made several withdrawals in the past and his bank is Gtbank while mine is Zenith. So how did this miss-up happened?
The following day i decided to make a withdrawal request and it reverted back to my iLot account. After several trials without success, I wrote to them explaining how someone else withdrawal landed in my account. They replied and said my account is linking another account and i have two accounts. Eventually, they deactivated my account with my fund of N66,741 inside but nothing happened to my colleagues account who decided to close his account by himself after removing all his money. iLot decided to punish me for admitting that i received an alert of another customer withdrawal in my bank account when in actual sense, the fault is from them.
I have being writing to iLot bet since then and they kept telling me they are still investigating. This is the second month now and iLot is still investigating. Pls i need advice on what to do to remove my money from iLot.

Is sports betting based on luck? 100% Yes, You can only have 50% chances of winning when you know how to predict sports games very well and the chances you have to win is luck when all the blubs selected are dancing to your tune.

The question is, is he making money from the sports betting? Yes! He said he make that much playing iLOTBET Whot games and Best Shooter, He is cashing out daily from iLOTBET which he was so happy to share his referrer link for me to register because he believe he was going to still make money from down liners.

Sports betting is luck
