What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
“63” is an odd number. In mathematics, it is an odd number meaning it is not divisible by two. It is also not a prime number as it can be divided but a number other than one and itself. It’s the numeric designation of a U.S. Highway which runs 1,286 miles between Ashland, Wisconsin, and Ruston Louisiana. For numerologists, “63” represents humanitarianism, family, idealism, harmony, and tolerance.
Closer to the raison d’être for this blog, “63” was the number worn by Hall of Famers Gene Upshaw and Lee Roy Selmon. But more on point, $63 is the exact number hauled in by the J-Dub Gambling Challenge Bankroll. Again, that’s not a big net gain off over $1,600 in total plays, but like I said last week, a win is a win.
Now, let’s see what kind of “harmony” in numbers this week will bring…
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 State at Purdue OFF
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 Baylor Bears.
Baylor at Brigham Young (-2.5) O/U 51.5 $50 Baylor, $50 Under
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.”
Arkansas (-6.5) at South Carolina O/U 54.5 $200 Arkansas, $200 Over
