    Bowls & CyBookie

    Now that the bowl season is over, how did everyone do on the bowl game credit betting? I wasn't working with nearly as much as some, so I consider my (approx) 1 million credit loss substantial... about 2/3's of my total going into it. I guess it's not quite as bad as my 401, yet.

    I lost the most on Texas Tech, and then another good amount on Texas. The bets I won were too small to help out.

    Any big winners? big losers?

    I ended up around 500k. Thank you Bob Stoops. You're so dependable in bowl games!

    Tech killed me. I dropped 1 mill on them. So much for that gut feeling!

    Lost it all. Just had a horrible string of losses, Tech topping them off with about a half million lost.

    If I didn't miss some bets I came out ahead 795,600 after I subracted my losses.

    The biggest bet I made was on USC, so that helped a lot.

    Down about 800,000

    I was doing all right until that game last night. I think I lost on just about every bet I placed.

    If this was real money I would have lost my house.
