Gambling 2K8: XXVIII

Technically, there's no such thing as a lock with the Vickers System...BUT...the idea is to place money on something you absolutely hate. Tonight, we gots our bucks on something we absolutely hate. In fact, in the 75-plus bets we've made, I haven't hated anything as much as...Jesus, this is difficult to type...

Tulsa/Central Florida UNDER 68.5

Explanation: Do you know anything about Tulsa? Have you checked out their schedule/results page lately? It's absurd. More absurd than 2001 BYU or 2003 Texas Tech, somehow. But this Tulsa team...I just can't imagine needing them (and their opponent) to combine for fewer than 70 points. This line is bullshit. Tulsa's games have averaged 84 points - EIGHTY GODDAMN FOUR! - plus, I read an interview somewhere with Tulsa coach Todd Graham and he seems to share Mike Martz's arrogance/philosophy - and I fully expect the Golden Hurricane to pull out all the stops on their debut performance on the national stage. Tulsa might score 80 tonight.

At this moment, I am terrified. Long live Vickers.
