Revenge Betting Systems
When sports handicappers speak of a team playing with revenge, they are talking about how Team A was beaten by Team B in a prior matchup. The prior matchup can span multiple prior season or refer only to the current season.
Since teams only play 16 regular season games per year, in season revenge only applies to teams playing division rivals. Division rivals play each other twice. On rare occasions a team will face a team for a third time if playing a division rival in the playoffs. Football teams play much better with revenge because they are more focused and a lot more intent on learning what they did wrong in the prior matchup.
Teams can play each other as many as 4 times per season if within the same conference. The strongest of all in season revenges would be what is called the "triple revenge" which refers to a team A that has lost three straight times to team B. Double revenge refers to a team that has lost twice in a row in the same season. Just as in football, teams with revenge pay attention closer to the details and will perform much better. Since the public looks back at the previous matchup where team B whooped team A, the public's systems tendencies will generally give team A value with regards to the spread for both the NBA and NFL.
Revenge is not really referred to baseball handicapping much except for the last game of a series when one team is looking for a sweep. Unlike basketball and football, teams looking for a sweep in baseball will generally get it.
