College Football Season = Gambling Season

Ed. Note: This is the first of a weekly series by TNIAAM "personality" Cody K.  And of course, everything he mentions below is for fun and "widgets"

Greetings, ya'll.  As we discussed in this post, this season I will make a mockery of gambling on college football and in the process do my best to empty out my bodog account.  I'll win some, I'll lost a lot more, and I will have a fun time in the process.  It's totally going to be kind of like this:

(Editor's note: Not really exactly like this; I likely won't start a feud with Alpa Chino)

Additionally, I will be licking my wounds each Sunday and Monday as I read through comments of people telling me things like, "I told you so" and maybe some "you are a total retard" and some other compliments like that.

(this will be so much fun you will feel like you are sitting in the MGM Sports book with me! On a related note, the MGM is a GREAT Sports book.  A few recommendations: get there early-much earlier than you would think-to get a good seat, try to stay away from too many of the 20 oz. "beer specials" for $4, and do not, REPEAT DO NOT start gambling on horses - trust me, bad idea. Save that for August afternoons in Saratoga).

Anyway, the game plan I've discussed with Troy is to pick three-four games per weekend: 

  1. The Syracuse game (keep in mind that Syracuse has a few bye weeks this season - so on weeks when the almighty Orange is idle, I'll pick the best Saturday Marquee match-up in the Big East
  2. One "upset" of the week (which will most of the time be a Top 25 game, but could just as likely be a random Pac-10 game)
  3. One "Big Game" of the week, which will be a marquee match-up occurs that weekend, ie two Top-25 teams squaring off
  4. Miscellaneous Big East related match-ups

Along the way I will also discuss my useless gambling philosophies. And lastly I will be betting on each game on my bodog account, so I'll be putting $$ where my mouth is. First post will go up Thursday with this weekends game; including the Syracuse game!  I'm fired up.
