    I am back to being a degenerate on Cy Bookie

    I saved up all my credits all summer long for college football....and I just wagered all 600,000 across a number of games. I love the first four weeks of football.

    The question is... did you bet the over on ISU wins for the season?

    Re: I am back to being a degenerate on Cy Bookie


    I'm in the same boat there Jon...

    I tried calling this


    They laughed at me and told me to call back when I start losing some real money.

    Edit: This is a joke. Just incase someone thinks I'm being rude to people that have a serious problem.

    Also, their should be a dissclaimer for everything since someone will always take something the wrong way.

    Re: I am back to being a degenerate on Cy Bookie

    I wagered 300,000 on ISU to win outright on Thursday. I think that was a 1 to 4.5 bet, but it seemed like the surest money on the board.

    I figured if I lost it, the sheer shock of that loss, and the calls that would ensue on my radio show on Friday would sort of offset the pain of lost credits. I just dont see that happening.

    Re: I am back to being a degenerate on Cy Bookie

    I put every credit I had on the Over for ISU's wins this year. That seemed almost a sure bet to me. I have to wait for a few weeks to collect though.

    Re: I am back to being a degenerate on Cy Bookie

    Can you settle just a portion of a bet? Otherwise I will be low on credits till the end of the season.

    Not when it is tied to 10 other teams.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    I had nothing to do with it :)

    Glad everyone loves it, I think I speak for all of us bookies when I say we really enjoy putting them out there.

    The first few weekends we will prob not have all the big12 or big10 games, there are just too many crappy games. Once we get into conf play we will have all of them every week.

    But if anyone out there has some special action they want to see, please let us know and we will get it posted.
