I forgot that blogger tournaments where meant to be fun and since I remembered that I've been having an enjoyable time playing the Mookie. I finished in 4th place last night as my hammer lost to the almighty AK. Yup, I've dissed the hammer before so of course I get no love in a key spot. Oh well it was a nice run and I think thats my first mookie final table where I didn't win it.
College football starts tonight! Wow football is back and not a moment too soon. I'm mostly a dog player and I especially love me some home dogs but tonight I gotta lay some big road wood and go with;
They've covered 9 of 10 vs Mississippi St with the lone exception being last year when the Dogs got a late TD to cover the 33 point number in losing 48-17. LSU is loaded this year and I don't see Miss St. getting more than 7. Prediction LSU 34-3.
Three other dogs look like decent plays but it's early so I'll either parlay them or just make three small wagers.
Miami-Ohio +6 at Ball St
Utah +7 at Oregon St
Utah St +7 vs UNLV
Also if there are any baseball bettors out there I'm about to start a "Bet against Seatlle Challange." The Ms have lost 5 straight at home and they head out for a make-up game at Cleveland followed up by three in Toronto, then three in New York, then three in Detroit. I put them on a 3-7 trip. So the challange is this.
Bet $100 Run Line on every home team that Seattle plays on the trip. If and when I get to +400 I'll press the bets up to $200, then if I get up $800 I'll press the bets to $400 etc. Tonight the Cleveland RL in +140 so thats a great number to start with and I'm thinking 6-7 of the bets should be at + odds. So worst case Seattle wins all ten and I dump a $1000, best case who knows, if they lose a bunch and I press getting + odds then +$5000 is not off the charts.
Had a blast playing with everyone at the Mookie last night and good luck to all the bettors kicking off college football tonight.
