I don't think a specific thread does either of those things. It just creates a place for such things to be posted and discussed by those who want to, without those discussions popping up in front of people who'd be better off not seeing them.What Coona said.
There will never be a standalone thread to discuss bets people put on, and mostly it is a throwaway line as part of a football discussion.
If someone is always throwing it in there, you can always block their content. I don't gamble but I'm not about to ostracise or demonise those who spend their own money on a legal activity.
We will monitor such things as always and look at it if it becomes too prevalent.
I've never been a gambler either, but have watched several seemingly intelligent, rational friends lose everything to gambling. Like the whole mental health thing, I think every little bit counts.
But it was just a suggestion. Obviously you guys will do as you see fit ...
