There are only three games left in the NFL and for many of us with it goes our gambling season. We aren’t degenerates who bet on games to try and make our rent. Instead we are action junkies that enjoy the thrill. It’s a long seven months until kickoff so what is one to do in the event that you get that itch and need some action?
Simple, you “rent a movie”. Here’s what you do. Turn on one of the ESPN channels and find a game. The teams that are playing aren’t important. Lets say it’s a college basketball tilt between Richmond and Temple and the spread is Temple -3. From there just pick a side and lay down a $10 bet. You now have entertainment for the next two hours just like if you “rent a movie”.
Normally a Richmond vs Temple game would do very little to move your needle but the second you put down some action that all changes. That’s the beauty of gambling. It can take something that you could care less about and make it as interesting as watching John McClane take down Hans Gruber at Nakatomi Plaza.
For those who don’t have a bookie or off shore gambling account keeping your juices flowing in the offseason can be as easy as playing a game of credit card roulette.
The next time you go out to eat with friends and the bill comes have everyone take out their credit card. From there put all of the cards into a hat and tell the waitress to start pulling them out one by one.
In order to add more drama it isn’t the first card pulled that loses but instead the last. That way you get to cheer or feel the agony every time a card is pulled. The last card remaining pays the bill.
Like winning a crazy backdoor cover you’ll never forget the time you dodged a $500 tab and got away completely unscathed.
