Do you think any professional sports may be fixed? (As in the winner being decided prior to the competition)

By eatbliss . Created on Feb 03, 2020
Professional wrestling excluded, do you think there exists the possibility that some sports (actually, more specifically, certain games, such as playoffs, world series, superbowl, etc) are fixed, with the winner being predetermined, and executed through bad referee calls, poor coaching, fake injuries, etc. Do you believe it has ever been done in a professional sporting event?

Yes. I think most sports are influenced and fixed. The games outcome is predetermined in most games.

I think it is possible, but is not done, or if so, rarely.

Are you kidding? Pro sports are sacred and it is impossible!

I think (don't know) that it can and does happen occasionally, but if this were a regular occurrence, there'd be no money to be made on sports books, which shift rapidly based on betting patterns, and would collapse if betters lost faith in the integrity of the system.

We all know it has happened in the past several times. My guess is it still can happen now as well. A little bit harder in team sports but that too has happened.

Yup! You can't tell me some horse racing events haven't been fixed! Was filled in by a grooms person years ago! My family and I lived near a race track for 6 months years ago btw homes and jobs! She claimed that at least one or two races were! I believe her! Now I am not sure but that was years ago!
