A ballsy way to turn $1 into $18

With the economy seemingly stagnant and mortgages going to hell, why not take the advice of the degenerate gambler and make a little extra money the fun way?

If you've got the Watermelon Balls of Fury (© MizzouRobot) and "expendable" income (Note: car payments = expendable), BodogLife has Mizzou at 18/1 odds to win the National Championship in 2008 (odds may be subject to change).

Anyone care to throw down a dollar? Hell, a measly $6,472.45 can pay for my entire college education, presuming that whole, you know, "National Championship" thing works out...

Other odds of note:

  • Hey, remember that KU Orange Bowl win? Bodog doesn't. KU is set at 60/1.
  • Vegas likes USC as the preseason favorite, slating them at the top with 3/1 odds.
  • The Big 12 once again looks like a shootout between Mizzou (18/1) and conference favorite Oklahoma (6/1). Texas seems to be the only other team with a decent shot (25/1).
  • Nebraska falls in line with powerhouses like Arizona, Oklahoma State, Washington and South Florida.
