OK, I would take that advice, it sounds informed! Play the over.
Can one also play 'the under'? Play 'the sideways'?
Does the 'over' have anything to do with being in overtime?
My GUESS is that 'playing the over' might mean betting on the team who is not favored and have been 'given points' in their odds to win the game?
No?
Well, obviously I need to lay low if at all in this thread, though maybe I can learn a little bit before I turn 100. "Play the over".... what the hail does that mean??
And yes, after this 2nd message here, I will lurk and leave it to those of you who know what each other is talking about, I promise.

The over, if you bet it you would be betting that the teams combined
score would go over a certain amount set by sweet guys called bookies, or
odds-makers.

Parlay or Teasers is a bet on the total score of both teams and taking
the over or under and then picking a team that has to win by
a certain amount of points set by odds-makers. Note that picking the favored
team you have to lay points. Picking the underdog (not the cartoon) you
recieve points. And since you are really making two bets, you get to tease
the bet by a few points on the total and the getting/giving points line.

Don't forget to figure in the Juice.

And even though I feel I'm being set-up...
Bama is just short for Alabama and
many people just call the football team Bama.
But if you're a yankee you are required to use
the following words at all times when referring
to the greatest college football team of all time.
And those words are...
The Alabama Crimson Tide or
The Crimson Tide Of Alabama.

Was the outcome ever really in doubt?
The #10 pigs put up a good fight, but
it wasn't enough to beat the best team
in the land.

Did the little piggys squeal all the way
home? Well, at least they didn't have
far to go.

"Bama" is just the shortened "Southern" version of "Alabama". The school's nickname is "The Crimson Tide".

The difference this year is that the Huskers WIN their "hiccup" game. And, with UCLA handing the 'Horns, their "rump roast"...look for BIG RED to take, not just the North Division, but the entire Big 12 championship.

Gator meat is so sweet.

Florida never had a chance.

For some reason I crave chicken.
