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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2020: Week 14 – The “Fansville Jinxer” Edition

If you’ve been watching college football in the last few years, you’ve likely come to know the “Dr. Pepper” commercial series known as “Fansville.” And if you know “Fansville,” you know all about “Mr. Face-Paint” up there.

He’s what we call “The Jinxer,” and apparently in “Fansville,” that’s a criminal offense. Sports gambling used to be illegal as well, but one thing every gambler will tell you is legal or not, you never do anything to give yourself the bad mojo.

That’s why it’s beginning to make me nervous to keep mentioning the continued success of this year’s Gambling Challenge. Eventually, the luck has to run out, but until then, this is all an exercise in avoiding the “jinx.” In the meantime, the J-Dub Gambling Challenge bankroll continues riding high by netting a profit of $223, setting the season total at $8,147…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…

Nebraska at Purdue (-2) O/U 61.5 $150 Nebraska

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 Alabama Crimson Tide.

Alabama (-29.5) at Louisiana State O/U 65.5 $100 Over

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.”

West Virginia at Iowa State (-6.5) O/U 49.5

$250 Iowa State, $250 Over
