Life and Sports: They don't always pan out the way you think they will.
One day you're betting the mortgage on Kentucky basketball to take home the national championship, four months later they've been knocked out of the NIT and you're sleeping in the pit again. Or perhaps you bet big money that Maryland would beat FSU football, and now you eat shoelaces and cook hobo chili under the expressway.
We can't all be right all the time. Sometimes you're right, sometimes you're a moron.
That being said, most of us can be better than these sports predictions. They might've sounded good at the moment, but the following are some of the "guaranteed locks" and hot sports takes that missed the mark by a mile or five.
These are sports predictions that went hysterically wrong, along with my smug reactions born of superior hindsight. These takes aren't pretty, but they'll remind you to always take your expert opinions with a heavy rim of salt.
