    and put down a big chunk of dough after reading a post that starts with "Bank on It" or "it's a lock". I gigle to myself everytime I see one of these posts thinking about that scenario. Just love all those old cliches but I have to wonder, do these guys ever call the Bookie themself? What other good cliches in that vain can you think of? This board as a surpring lack of them IMO as the guys tend not to boast too much as a whole.

    This football season I'm going to start recording what are "locks" and what are "gurantees" and at the end of the season I want to see what the % is.

    I wonder what the odds are and if anyone got rich over some guarantees of the past.
    Didn't Pat Riley or who was it that guaranteed the Lakers to repeat as champs in the late 80's and did!

    I have heard some people say they won a bundle on the 69 Super Bowl when Joe Namath guaranteed a Jets win.

    There was a website a couple of years back and I forget the name (if you know it please post it) - anyway, some guy let his dog make sports picks by placing 2 dog bones in front of the 2 team logos and then let the dog in the room. The dog would go right after one or the other and the guy would take a picture and post it on the site. End of the year the dog outperformed most of the "experts" and "gurus"

    There are those in the fast lane and

    There are the rest ...

    If you bet on LSU Football and listened to someone last year when LSU received no respect and Vegas and could not get a true feel for out team ... you cleaned up ...

    LSU went 11-2 ATS ... the Div 2 game didn't count ... but they covered an unofficial 34 point spread

    If you bet a lousy grand on each game ... you ended up 9K ahead at the end of the year.

    Only against Ole Miss & FLA, LSU did not cover.

    I wonder if Las Vegas will underestimate LSU again this year and take another whipping ;)

    2004 could be time to get out of the fast lane. Maybe some slower transportation ... Down "Shula"

    Ramah,

    Are you the one on the right or left in that pic?

    Do we have an early line on LSU-OSU?
