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

The J-Dub Gambling Challenge 2020: Week 15 – The “Riding The Bull Market” Edition

So…writing about the “jinx” last week didn’t have the feared effect. To make a long story short, gambling on college football is my business…and business is good. On Wall Street, the colloquial term for a soaring economy is a “bull market.” I’m not naïve enough to know the opposite “bear market” isn’t lurking out there somewhere, but they were still in hibernation last weekend. The J-Dub Gambling Challenge tagged another net profit; this time for $458 leaving the bankroll at yet another record-high of $8, 604…up from the original 5K.

Not really my style, but I’m all in for tapas afterward.

Speaking of bulls, in Spain, they don’t have college football to gamble on…and they don’t have bears. Instead they fill their bellies with wine and cured meats, then risk their lives running with the bulls in a narrow, walled street. They have their ways to gamble, and I have mine. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with eating your weight in jamón serrano and washing it down with a good solid bobal, but I’d rather ride the bull market than run from them.

In any event, the question is will the “bears” come out in the final weekend of the Gambling Challenge, or will the partially-full stadiums of this fall continue to look like Pamplona in the summer?

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…

Purdue is idle this week

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 Arkansas O/U 68.5 $300 Alabama

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.”

Navy at Army (-7) O/U 37.5 $1,000 Army
