Is there a word, or phrase, to express when someone makes a bet with the intent to lose?
I’m looking for one of two things (or both). Either a verb to express the action of making such a bet, or a word that is defined by this specific type of bet.
An example would be in Seinfeld: Elaine makes a bet with a guy, and if the guy “loses” he must buy her dinner (with the assumption being he made a bet knowing he would lose).
I realize this is basically just a swindle, but I’m hoping there is something more specific.
