In just a few weeks, wives everywhere go back to where they belong...nagging the shit out of us about watching too much football. It's the time of year when ESPN Analysts make BOLD predictions like 4 SEC teams going to the College Playoff and argue that Michigan and Notre Dame are still relevant. If you are a football fan, College or Pro, there is a good chance that you wager to some extent. Maybe it is a weekly pick 'em, a fantasy league, a suicide pool. Or maybe you are an adult and have a bookie.
My name is Tommy Touchy (Touchy being short for Touchdown) and I have a gambling problem. I'm excited to be joining the team at Whiz Wit Sports to bring you a weekly blog dedicated to the degenerates out there. The people who will bet the Hawaii game a Midnight because they need to get a little money back before Sunday at 1:00pm. If you are familiar with the word "MACtion" you are in the right place. If you haven't bet a Wednesday Night Football game featuring 2 Colleges that you can't even guess what state they are located in...well maybe you will enjoy the other "Sports Blogs" with Chrissy Teigen's Instagram pictures or video of a couple of drunks fighting at the Shore.
Each week I will bring insight into a few College games and a couple of Pro matchups. I won't be giving you the Top 25 game that Herbstreit is pleasuring himself to all week. And I sure as hell won't be wearing a Mascot head like that other tool. Instead we will discuss the games that have value. Chances are the teams that have paid off for me, are not the ones you typically wager on. Did you know Alabama scored 482 points last year outside of the Playoffs? My favorite 2014 team, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, scored 528 and gave up another 471! If you want to take Bama -7.5 vs. LSU and watch an Overtime "thriller" that ends 24-17 enjoy that. You will quickly learn a few fun facts. For example the max amount you can take out of an ATM in 24 hours is $500, makes it tough to pay your book the $660 you owe from playing Prime Time games all week.
Or you can follow Touchy and bet WKU vs Old Dominion Over 56...and by halftime have paid for your entire New England vacation and the 24 oysters you drunkenly ordered during the 2nd quarter. Overs make money!
So please keep an open mind and do your own research as well. But be willing to bet on the Bowling Green game instead of Florida State vs Clemson. Next week I will be coming out with my College/NFL futures blog, stay tuned. I look forward to feeding into the habit that will eventually cause friction in your relationships. Your feedback and questions are welcomed and encouraged. Let's make some money!
