What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
After last week’s theme being all about the “roller coater”…especially when it was all about taking home the biggest haul of the season…what do you think happened?
If you said the J-Dub Challenge took a major hair-cut. I’d give you one, but I’m not sure I can afford it. Anyway, without any additional fanfare, here’s’ the bottom line. I got clipped to the $548. While that is the biggest one-week drop this season so far, I’m still up for the year; $5,697 from the original $5K.
Now, let’s see what happens this week…
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…
Purdue at Illinois (-7.5) O/U 44.5 $75 Purdue, $75 Over
Introduced by our own guest columnist King George VI (the grandfather of the current King Charles III), this feature is all about the line of the week that’s so outrageous it’s almost as crazy as we Americans find the idea of a monarch.
Indiana at Ohio State (-40.5) O/U 60.5 $100 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 Oregon Ducks
Washington at Oregon (-12.5) O/U 73 $50 Washington, $50 Over
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.”
Vanderbilt at Kentucky (-11.5) O/U 47 $500 Vanderbilt, $500 Under
