Many people like betting on sports and many people also like talking about sports as if they were betting on sports despite having no actual intention of doing so. This is a post for both types of people, but with more emphasis on the latter because some of these are quite specific and probably couldn’t get much action.

Below are my 2013 Detroit Tigers Over/Unders. Comment and share this post and let’s get a little contest going.
