I always had enough trouble picking one winner, so parlays were out of the question.

Yes I played all individually.

I actually fudged a little and added OK state on the ML so if I got to that game I could hedge with Stanford +5 and maybe hit the middle to win both sides.  It increased my parlay payout and allowed me to at least win a little if I can get through today.  Probably lose the first two anyway.

Amazing the difference in payouts from insane (100k) to sane (4k).

Anybody see the commercial for the "Forever Lazy" during the Penn State-Houston game?  The people wearing them look like anorexic Teletubbies.

I played a hunch with Michigan State.  It was good for me to see Uga only get 3 off that pick.
I think it has to be the whole leg and not just pieces.

I think today is a perfect day to do the "sane" parlay.  I love these games.

Florida -2.5
Georgia -3
S. Carolina -3
Oregon -6

I went with this also but got Oregon at -5.  If UGA doesn't fall apart, I'm a huge ducks fan.

For the fricksticks, out of curiosity, what's the biggest parlay you've ever hit?

Very nice.  What sport?  And it must have been a pretty low bet to get $12k out of 7 teams, right?

Hamdi, I'll root for you to hit your parlay if you'll repay me my wager if State doesn't cover.

Well, another bowl season parlay bonanza comes up empty.  Would have at least liked to have had the push to keep it going throughout the night.  Mark Richt doesn't have the "kill" attitude.  To nice.

No kidding about Richt.  I was talking with my neighbor, who is a Michigan State man, late in the 4th and told him Georgia was making a big mistake not even trying to get that first down with 2 minutes left in regulation.  And then having Murray run backward to center the ball for the FG attempt that Walsh missed.  Way too conservative. 

But it WAS nice covering the spread and the ML on that one.   Georgia should've won that about 5 different times.  I'm rarely that lucky when making such a play.  :thumbup:

Thanks Okie State, you bastards could have ran a QB sneak so you would cover instead of kicking the FG at the end and screwing me.

It is official.  Georgia cost me 5k.  I really hate that.  The middle landed with the OK state fg which would have won me both sides.  :(

Wow, sorry to hear that, Hamdi.

That idiot kicker for Stanford cost me another nice ML bet.  I was playing with house money from the Michigan State game, but still.  I wonder if David Shaw has a lesbian mule of a friend with an email account.

It seems like Michigan -3 or ML -147 is the obvious bet in the Sugar Bowl tonight.  VT's starting place-kicker is at home for a home invasion arrest, and Beamer sent the backup home for violating a 1AM (!) curfew in New Orleans.  1AM seems late for a bowl-week curfew in the party capital of the South.  VT's senior kicker-offer and punter are said to be competing for place-kicking duties in practice.

Add to that the VT players have apparently been living it up in the strip clubs on Bourbon and hotel-adjacent casino, enough so that their own long snapper wrote a column in favor of banning the "extravagance" and "temptations" of bowl week, and complaining that a young lady asked him "Hey, Ginger, want a ride?" promoting a mechanical bull attraction.

Michigan could be jittery for lack of bowl experience, but this looks like it's lining up to be an Arkansas Las Vegas Bowl situation for Virginia Tech.  Any takers?

Probably shouldn't show this to some of you heathens, but have you ever heard of Intrade?  I could get in trouble real quick with it.

This guy is an idiot.  He could have split that up into 5k bets at worst and played multiple games and increased his odds that he might have went 5-3 and made a nice profit.

Wonder how long it took him to save up for that? So you save, save, and save...for that one bet to come along....and Wisconsin +3.5 SH is what hits you?

Speaking of bad beats...Friend had Okie State in the second half for  -3...tried to get his bet in, and it went to -3.5 -105...decided frick it, they got this.

I hate this.  Too many -3.5s in the bowl games this season.

After looking at this a little closer, I am confused.  It shows it is a halftime wager and Wisconsin won the first half because the score was tied.  The line shows +3.5 and that would have been a first half line.  At no time did the line go below +4 for the game and depending on how the game was being played makes sense that the +3.5 line was given for halftime.

Also the amount says 44k, but underneath it shows 45k to pay 64k.  The thing is photoshopped and done poorly I might add.

I thought the same thing, but look at this similar ticket from Wynn.  I think they just have a screwed-up way of describing the bet on the ticket.

Edit: It must say "Win $40,000 to Pay $84,000".  He was betting $44K at -110 to win $40K + his bet = $84,000.  I agree it looks like a winner if it has Wisconsin +3.5 at halftime.
