What is Lock?
In betting parlance, a lock is an easy winner, or a clear no lose situation. It may refer to the bettor themselves, or the team or competitors being wagered on. In may also be used to refer to the losing side.
It is common superstition to never say a particular bet, game, or outcome is a lock before the game goes final. It is bad luck to do so.
