What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2017: The “Bridge-Jumper” Edition

It’s really not what you think.  This really isn’t about incurring such huge gambling losses that I contemplated swan-diving off the Golden Gate into the smokestack of an out-bound Chinese freighter.  Rather, in the parlance of the degenerate gambler, a “bridge-jumper” is a guy who lays out huge amounts of money to win relatively little.  The classic example came from the recent Mayweather-MacGregor fight, where there were big-time gamblers laying millions of dollars to win tens of thousands.

That’s the silliness of “money-line” betting, and exactly why you will never see such a bet here on the J-Dub Gambling Challenge. The problem is so far in 2017, the J-Dub Gambling Challenge is getting “bridge jumper” results.  Last week, I laid out $1,848 in bets (juice included) and hauled in a net profit of $202.  That means to net one dollar in profit; I was betting $9.14. That’s a return on investment roughly equal to what Hilary Clinton spent to win votes in place like North Dakota.

That’s why when it comes to gambling, “bridge jumping” is a suicidal strategy unless you have lead-pipe locks like Mayweather-MacGregor.  It’s even worse when you end up with “bridge jumper” results and you’re not starting on the ledge.  Maybe after this week, I might be looking for a good bridge…

Having said that, let’s get ready to gamble…

DISCLAIMER: Because gambling is illegal at Bushwood, sir…  and when it comes to gambling,  I slice like Jack the Ripper working the deli coumter 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.
