What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
If you want to get all poetic about it, go down to your local college, walk up to the liberal arts building, and find some patchouli-reeking hairhead smoking a clove cigarette. That person can give you all sorts of free-verse about what “bitter-sweet” really means. But for degenerate gamblers, all I need to say is “bitter-sweet” is hitting a big bet on your favorite team because they lost but still made the number.
That’s what last week’s action brought to the J-Dub Gambling Challenge. Watching Penn State gack up a 15-point lead to Ohio State was tough; a blow softened by the fact the Nittany Lions were a touchdown underdog anyway. In other words, the bank roll got a lot more healthy; a $465 pick-up to bring the season total to $3,758.
Now, let’s see that hairy poet rhyme something with “meet me at the plasma center.”
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.

I had Virgina-Iowa two-teamer.
Side note: I’d lay off betting either way on both Florida and FSU for the rest of the season unless you’re getting a fat money line on one of ’em.
Florida – agree completely. Much like how NFL teams suffered from the “Norv Turner” effect, I’m afraid the Gators got a few years of 30-point road blowouts coming.
Florida State – Not so fast, my friend…Anytime you can buy FSU favored by more than a touchdown, take those points and run like a thief in the night.
