Boring Game Less Boring With Entire Paycheck Riding On It
OAK HILLS, CA--24-year-old football fan Ben Torrance was able to enjoy a boring game between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday by placing his entire paycheck on the Broncos to cover the 11 point spread. The Broncos won 9-6, costing Torrance $500 and providing him with an afternoon of thrills and white-knuckle action in the process.
“Whew, that was a great game,” said Torrance, of Oak Hills, CA. “That was a real thrilled for me. You’d be amazed at how exciting these games can be when you have something at stake, like you’re entire paycheck. I was on the edge of my seat all afternoon. I could barely sit still. This is why I always get so pumped up for the start of gambling season. I mean football season.”
Torrance also made the Sunday night game, between the Redskins and Cowboys, more exciting by wagering next week’s paycheck on it.

It's a parody article, but it brings up a great point. As much as people would like to do it, betting the Broncos to cover the spread is normally a bad idea...
