Default Let's Make Some Sirius Money This Holiday.

The goal is to win enough money to cover a 2007 Sirius subscription.
We'll do it by putting our heads together this bowl season and pick some games. Who's with me?

I have a bigger account for each football and basketball season, but I spread the money around more conservatively throughout the year.

During special sporting events, like bowl season, I create a separate account, spread the money in larger amounts with a goal in mind. The last time I did this was during the NBA Finals. My goal was to win enough to be able to buy a new TV. It didn't really work out the way I imagined, and I ended up losing the deposit, but sometimes, that's the cost of wagering.

$160 will be our goal this bowl season.

There are 25 bowl games this year.
If we wager $25 a game we need to go 16-9 to make a profit of $175.

We are spread out across the country and we follow different teams. If we combine our knowledge, hopefully we can break these games down and be on the right side. I'd be glad to start this if we get a few people interested, but if no one is, I'll let this thread die. Let me know what you all think. 1st bowl game is On the 19th!

SBS def. K. Rogers 6-0, 6-0, 7-6 (23-21)

Kenny makes a furious 3rd set comeback but double faults to lose the match after a record length tiebreak.

Good luck with Green Bay, SemiPenguin. I'm assuming you're taking the points?

So far, bowl season has been really good to me. I'm 5-0 so far, hitting TCU, South Florida, Hawaii, Florida State and Rutgers.

I would be so close to my goal, but my dismal week in the NBA is really balancing off the profits. I think I'll take a few days off from NBA to focus on the onsalught of bowl games coming up. I'm also looking into the UFC card coming up tomorrow night.

Good luck to you!
