The Second Annual Wally Hotvedt College Football Bowling Challenge

wally hotvedt

Last year, we introduced you to the Wally Hotvedt College Football  Bowling Challenge.  Like we said before, this is an homage to a deep-cut from the history of independently-produced Twin Cities television.  Wally Hotvedt was one of the hosts of “Let’s Bowl,” which was a bowling-based pseudo-game show turned full-on parody of crap television.  For those of you familiar with the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, you know “Let’s Bowl” was a staple at the iconic Bryant-Lake Bowl.

 

The College Football  Bowling Challenge was such a success that we decided to bring back Wally as it’s sponsor.  Well, that’s not completely true.  You see, like most bloggers, Wally is a maladjusted and slightly creepy loner, and he begged us to be part of the Challenge again.  Frankly, we didn’t want to be last person he called before being found dead in some squalid studio apartment, so we threw him a bone.

Joining the Wally Hotvedt College Football  Bowling Challenge is actually far easier than it is for Wally himself to make friends.  All you have to do is follow this link, use the pool ID 132061 and password letsbowl , pick your college bowl game winners, and if you can out-pick J-Dub, we won’t give Wally your phone number.

Since we had to explain this to a few people last year, this is a “pick against the spread” pool,  which means:

» All games are picked against half-point spreads
» 1 point for each correct pick
» How it works:

  • Picking against the spread is where you try to determine which team will cover the spread; not necessarily which team will win.
  • While certain teams will win their game, they will not “cover the spread”, and thus if the team is selected it will count as a loss.
  • Example:
    • The home team is favored by 16.5 points (-16.5)
    • The home team beats their opponent by 8 points (31 to 23), but, the home team’s spread was (-16.5), so, when picking against the spread, the home team’s score was 14.5 (31 minus 16.5), which is less than their opponent’s score of 23.
    • This means anyone who picked the home team to win by 16.5 points or more was incorrect, since they only won by 8 points

Sign up today, and maybe you can get the opportunity to tell J-Dub he’s the Wally Hotvedt of college football wagering. The results of the J-Dub Gambling Challenge can tell you that.
