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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2018: Week 8 – The “10 Gambling Answers With Richard Dawson” Edition

Last week, we here at Dubsism hired a psychic to conduct seances to reach into the afterlife to talk to two legendary game show hosts.  First, we asked “The Match Game’s ” Gene Rayburn to give us ten of his famous “fill-in-the-blank” style questions which would be of particular interest to those of us who might enjoy wagering on college football.

In a right and just world, where’s there’s questions, there should be answers.  it would be the stretchiest of stretches to say the blogosphere is anything even remotely resembling “right and just,” especially in a piece clearly aimed at my fellow degenerate gamblers.  Nefarious nature aside, don’t let it be said I’m not going to share the answer you sent to those aforementioned questions.

With that, this is where I’ll turn it over to Mr. Dawson…

#1) If I had to bet on a winner for the Heisman Trophy today, my money would be on ___________.

Now that we’ve had our classic game-show fun, let’s get back to why we’re all here.  In other words. let’s get ready to gamble…

LEGAL DISCLAIMER (mandated by our very own Small Town Pizza Lawyer):

Thanks to the Supreme Court, gambling is no longer illegal at Bushwood, sir. However, the Supreme Court can’t really help me unless one of them is willing to keep Mrs. J-Dub from braining me with a cast-iron skillet if she found out how many dimes I’m dropping on college football. That means that as far as she knows, all wagers are mythical in nature and this is in no way, shape, or form a gambling advice column. In other words, if you lose your own “real” money, that’s nobody’s fault but yours, so don’t yell at me when we meet at the plasma center on Monday.

  • Maryland at Iowa (-10.5) O/U 50.5 $250 Iowa
  • Northwestern (-20.5) at Rutgers O/U 49.0 $100 Northwestern, $100 Over
  • Miami (OH) at Army (-7.5) O/U 46.5 $125 Army
  • Michigan (-7.5) at Michigan State O/U 41.5 $150 Over
  • Penn State (-13) at Indiana O/U 61 $100 Penn State
  • Wake Forest at Florida State (-10) O/U 60 $150 Wake Forest
  • Minnesota at Nebraska (-4) O/U 56 $100 Nebraska
  • Vanderbilt at Kentucky (-11) O/U 48 $75 Kentucky, $75 Over
  • Oregon at Washington State (-1) O/U 66.5 $200 Oregon
  • Nevada at Hawaii (-3.5) O/U 70 $250 Hawaii

    On a side and totally unrelated note, which is quite often how I reply to these posts, the local Hard Rock Casino, which is only about seven miles from SportsChump Manor, is expanding… and I mean expanding.

    They’re building a whole other hotel/casino far larger than the one that already exists. There’s no telling whether they’ll name a wing after me after all the money I’ve dumped in there but here’s hoping they will eventually have a sports book.

    Fingers, sir, are crossed.
