Third Annual Football Fake Sporting Bets

New, 15 comments

It’s that time of year Again!!!

Welcome you degenerate college football fans to another year of the Annual Fake Sporting Bets, here on WRNL. We are brought to you by our friends from 1-800-Betsoff. If you have a gambling problem like me, make sure to call the number and freeze your bank accounts. Just don’t do it in that order.

Now that the wonderful state of Iowa has allowed gambling to be legal, expect there to be more casual fans dipping their virgin toes into the water. I’ve been a consistent football and basketball betting aficionado since I got out of college, but am not sure if I will take the leap towards Iowa casinos. All in all, it is a good thing for sports in general and helps liven some of the action along the way.

With that being said, we have 10 completely legitimate bets you can make on WRNL, and all of them are sanctioned and protected by our good friends from the “TEAM OUT EAST.” You may know them as a prestigious and accredited Law School, but we here know them simply as ANAL.

Now, if you don’t know already, here is how every prop bet comes into play – it works off a standard $100 bet. If you see odds of MINUS $200, that means, you have to bet $200 to make $100. And vice-versa, PLUS $500, means the same as 5-to-1 odds, betting $100 to make $500. Got it? Alright, here we go.
