    CreditFlation

    So... I think with the recent ISU football "against the spread" results we are in a heavy period of CF Creditflation.

    I see we now have 54 millionaires in our midst (I'm still not there yet), and 2 with over 10 million.

    This makes me think we are all in for a BIG loss coming up soon...

    Congrats to wheels686 and coachdags, who I believe may be the first in the 10 million club.

    Re: CreditFlation

    Yeah... beating the spread helped me to almost double my credits yesterday...

    I had enough on us winning out-right too that at the rate of 4.25 or whatever I'd have had another million


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    If the game Satyrday would have followed my betting pattern for the day, I'd be over 4 million

    Ok throwing Vegas into the betting scene means we're gonna all lose our credits for sure


    So everyone vote for UNLV... atleast then we can lose them for a good cause

    Yeah... I put down as much as I could on that bet... just needed to hold some in reserve to have money to bet with. I think I ended up with about 400k on ISU to win 4.

    We still have to wait for November for that to payout, even if ISU wins the next 2 games.

    Re: CreditFlation

    Given what I assume the spread will be for the UNLV game, I'll join the 10 million club next week.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: CreditFlation

    Jeremy,
    Any chance you could tweek the cybookie to adjust the line on games to balance out the bets similar to what vegas does? That way you won't have everyone on one side of the spread. Just a suggestion

    +3?......


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

    What do you assume the spread will be? I reserve the right to make it whatever I want :)
