J-Dub Gambling Challenge Week 5 – We’re Above Water…Barely


If you’ve been following  The J-Dub Gambling Challenge since the beginning, you know the bankroll which Mrs. J-Dub doesn’t know about started at $5,000.  Then I had a “You’re gonna need a bigger boat” moment in Week One.  Since then, it’s been “Shark Week” meets “Mo’ Money” all meeting at Fred Sanford’s EKG.  While I haven’t had “the Big One” yet, I have managed to get back above water. Granted, it may be like when Chief Brody climbs up the mast on the sinking Orca, but going into the Week five the bankroll stands at $5,047.

I’ll admit a big part of that recovery was putting Florida State on notice for consistently nonperforming, but I still don’t trust them or anybody else in the ACC.  What it all comes down to is this week hits the end of the month, which means do I make the house payment on Monday, or am I taking Les Miles up on the offer to rent the apartment above his garage?

DISCLAIMER: Because gambling is illegal at Bushwood, sir…  and when it comes to gambling,  I slice like Jack the Ripper working the deli counter on crystal meth.  That’s why this in no way, shape or form is a gambling advice column, and all “bets” are mythical in nature.  In other words, don’t come crying to me when you lose your house payment betting real money like I’m “betting” Monopoly money.

  • Florida at Vanderbilt (+10) O/U 41 $100 Over 
  • Oklahoma State at Texas (+2.5) O/U 71.5  $30 Oklahoma State
  • Northwestern at Iowa (-13) O/ U 43 $50 Over
  • Virginia at Duke (-3.5) O/U 60.5 O/U $75Duke, $100 Under
  • Navy at Air Force (+7) O/U 47.5  $100 Navy
  • Tennessee at Georgia (+3.5) O/U 51 $50 Tennessee
  • Purdue at Maryland (-10) O/U 56 $50 Maryland
  • Wisconsin at Michigan (-10.5) O/U 45  J-Dub’s Trap Game of the Week – There’s almost nothing worse than two teams about whom you really aren’t sure, and they have a “prove the hype” game early in the conference schedule.  Two things are givens about games like this: 1) When it’s over, somebody will be crying in the shower like Elizabeth Shue in “Leaving Las Vegas,” and 2) by not touching this game, I guarantee it won’t be me.
  • Minnesota at Penn State (-3) O/U 56 $50 Penn State
  • Kansas State at West Virginia (-3) O/U 54 J-Dub’s Lock of the Week $200 West Virginia
  • Texas A&M at South Carolina (+17.5)  O/U 48 Dubsism College Football Heavyweight Champ Bet $25 Over
  • Missouri at LSU (-13) O/U 52 $75 LSU

    What I’m enjoying most about the NFL contest I’m hosting over yonder, which by the way is a contest you need to get into, is that is shows just how difficult it is to come out ahead betting on football.

    Brutal season so far.

      Against my better judgement, I’m in. The problem with betting on the NFL is there’s only three point spreads – 2.5, 5, and 7. That means most of these teams are all pretty much the same.

        Roger Goodell and the powers that be strive for parity in the league, Dub, which is probably why they suspended Brady for four games.

        To no avail.

        “Parity.” Another manifestation of the communist mind-set brought to us by the same limp-wrists who brought us participation trophies and kale salad.
