    I Bet The Farm

    And lost it all on the ISU vs UNLV game. I now have a gambling problem...I'm out of credits :(

    Anyone else get smoked on this game?

    Nope, I didn't like that line, avoided it like the plague, and I still have my credits...

    I did not bet big because this is about how I thought it would end.

    No, instead I blew all my credits on the Cowboys/Pack game last night.

    I only bet on ISU when the point spread seems to be out of control. It's never a good idea to bet on a team you have an emotional tie to (whether positive or negative), it's too tough to be objective.

    I would loan you some credits, but I have no Cyclone Fanatic Thugs or Cyclone Fanatic Collectors on the payroll...

    Re: I Bet The Farm

    At least you didn't bet with real money in Vegas. I didn't bet on ISU, but the Hawkeyes barely came thru and I won $50 on the total points and got a push on the game. Missouri and Indiana let me down, but I broke even on all my bets, I guess that's a victory.

    Re: I Bet The Farm

    I'm by far not one to brag about being right on my bets but I won that one, unfortunately. I'm still betting piddley amounts though. Went from 400k to about zero during the NBA playoffs... I still have no expectation of ever getting into the lofty stratosphere of those with millions to count!

    Well, the very big bets certainly didnt go well but I only even got up to 400k because of a few 30-50k bets, which I think are large!

    As for posting a lot, I have very little to say, as I'm sure most who read my posts would attest.

    You just need to be creative. Just go to an old thread and post a ton of one word posts so you can line your pockets with credits

    Come visit us in the cave, we get lots of credits by harping on the same thing over and over and over and over.
