My College Football Gambling Is Absolutely Disastrous So Far
My gambling on week three of college football might have finally broken me.
It was a disaster all across the board. Here were the picks I gave you guys last week:
UCLA (-3) vs. Memphis
Tennessee (+4.5) vs. Florida
Alabama (-28.5) vs. Colorado State
LSU (-7) vs. Mississippi State
Clemson (-3) vs. Louisville
We lost on every single one of those bets except Clemson. Going 1-4 is absolutely brutal. What’s even more brutal is that I had Clemson, LSU and UCLA all as complete locks. That’s not the greatest look for me as the so-called expert on gambling to go 20 percent on any given week.
It gets much worse though. I’ve been taking it in the shorts all football season long. I came out huge after college basketball season (you can go ahead and triple whatever number you’re imagining), I pretty much split even on the NHL and NBA playoffs but I am getting railed through three weeks of college football. It’s been a massacre.
It’s also happening in the most heartbreaking of ways. I had a decent amount of money on Tennessee +4.5 against Florida. The game was tied as the final seconds ticked off the clock. I figured we were bound for overtime, which is good news for me because that means the Volunteers will almost certainly cover. Instead, Florida threw a 63 yard Hail Mary and won by six. Heartbreaking. I might as well have just thrown a bunch of cash on the floor and torched it. It would have been a better use of my time and money.
The good news is we have plenty of time left in the season. My picks for you guys are currently sitting at 6-9, but we have plenty of time to get that number way above .500.
As for me, I’m a sucker for a comeback story and right now my gambling on the season needs the biggest comeback ever to clean this circus up before the season ends. Strap in because the excitement is only just beginning.
