    A guy at work, who is a dirt bag alum Mississippi State fan, has me come up with weird bets every year. Last year it was how many games into the season will the first coach get fired. The o/u was 6.5 where he went over I went under. The year prior it was the SEC vs the field for the national champion, where I took the field. This year, since I am a CU and SMU fan, I have come up with a different wager. I put the combined win total for my two teams at 9 (last year they went 3 - 21), and I take the over. He is bitching that that win total is to low and should be higher. Am i off that this is a fair bet (possibly being too generous already on the win total given recent history)?

    Seeing as how Vegas has the O/U on wins for CU and SMU set at 4.5 and 2.5, respectively, I'd say you're hustling yourself by giving him 2 games!

    Taking money from a Mississippi State fan shouldn't be so difficult.

    Agree with TSchekler, you should tell him 8.5 since 9 is a win. 8 would have been a fair bet.

    Bet Mississippi St's O/U. See if you can get 9 and take the under.

    What is the over/under on Orr and Luke meeting up at Casa Bonita and they end up making out in the cave?
