Parlay Card for Fun and Hopefully Money!

I haven't made it to Verdi to check and get another lottery ticket so this morning as I was reading the Sunday paper and making my pick for football, I decided to give Jay my picks and have him run to Grand Sierra Resort and put the $40 I had in my purse on a parlay card.  It can't be any worse than what I have done playing the lottery which I think the most I have won on a $20 lottery ticket is $8.  My mom does much better than I do, yet she plays weekly, I make it down around once every 3 months.  So I gave my picks to Jay and he decided on 6 games out of the 10 I chose.  Odds are 50-1 so if we win all 6 games, we will win $1960 after the $40 take. Here are my game picks..........

  • Jets have win by 7.5 points
  • Bills have to win by 6.5 points
  • Buccaneers have to win by 3.5 points
  • Steelers have to lose by 1.5 points
  • Raiders have to win by 2.5 points (Hey they are playing the Chiefs it could happen!)
  • Bears have to lose by 3.5 points
Since I am trying to not leave my house on Sundays, (one of my money saving strategies) this will actually make me watch football as I sew with my husband.....(watch football that is!)  Wish me luck , for a $40 bet, $1960 is not too bad, problem is, you have to get all in order to win.  This is our first time, so we will see if this is something we can do and enjoy......(win).

Im a loser, had fun and almost had an anxiety attack watching the first 2 games, the Buccaneers won by 3 and I needed 3.5 and the Bills lost so the rest of the card is shot, off to start sewing! At least I got into the first two games, my throat actually hurts from yelling at the stupid goal kicker for the Bills, he sucks!
