What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Here we are…the fourteenth and final of the Twelve Greatest Saturdays of the Year. Yeah, I know the numbers don’t jibe, but what else would you expect in a college football world where the B1G Ten has fourteen teams, there’s soon to be nothing “big” about the Big 12, and the wacky Pac-12 has the only honest total?
Since we find ourselves at the end of yet another season, it’s time to talk about numbers that matter. Once again the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bankroll finds itself riding a “bull” market. After a pick-up of $635, the total stands at $7,645 heading into the final weekend of the regular season.
But it’s also the last weekend which brings us some of the biggest games. That’s also how the “bull” market can become “bearish” in a big hurry, and there’s only one way to find out what happens…
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.
If you think you have a gambling problem, go find the 800 number on your own. I’m not a goddamn public service announcement.
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…
Indiana at Purdue (-15) O/U 49.5 $75 Purdue, $75 Over
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 Mississippi Rebels.
Mississippi (-2) at Mississippi State O/U 62.5 $150 Mississippi
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.”
Ohio State (-6) at Michigan O/U 63.5 $1,000 Ohio State, $1,000 Under
