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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2020: Week 11 – The “Life By 1,000 Cuts” Edition

If you’ve ever read anything above the level of a Denny’s placemat, you’ve likely heard the term “death by 1,000 cuts.” Well, it only makes sense that if you can have such a death, life can exist in the inverse. As much as it may sound like some sort karma-twisting, especially when it’s being applied to an endeavor in pure, uncut vice, there’s really no better way to describe last week’s results.

While I took the gas pipe on yet another “Payday of the Week,” which means a few more whiffs and I will officially become the blogosphere’s version of Chris Berman, who had a streak of about 75 years inaccurately predicting the Super Bowl contestants.

Call me what you will, I’ll be crying all the way to the bank because I hit nearly everything else…life by a bunch of small bets. After I tallied up all the winners, the J-Dub Gambling Challenge bankroll netted a profit of $630, leaving the season total at $6,152…up from the original 5K.

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 for one over-arching reason.

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; they are of no use to me. 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.

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

The Almost Always Punitive Purdue Bet

Since I live in the heart of Big Ten country, almost literally in the shadow of Ross-Ade stadium, those around me who know I’m a gambler will invariably ask me about the Boilermakers, so I might as well bet on them…

Northwestern (-3.5) at Purdue O/U 50.5 $100 Purdue

The Dubsism College Football Heavyweight Champ Bet:

We went back to the very first college football game in 1869, and the premise is simple…you’re the champ until somebody beats you. The current champion is the Auburn Tigers

Auburn is idle this week.

J-Dub’s Payday of the Week:

It’s like the game says…the idea is to hang on to your cash. That means this is the “big play” of the week; the one that should make today “Payday.”

Indiana (-7.5) at Michigan State O/U 67

$500 Indiana
