    I told my buddy about the Titans Bovada Superbowl odds at 150 to 1 and told him I was thinking about putting $20 down. He said he would he would take it right there right then. I really don't think we'll win the Superbowl, but couldn't refuse the off chance of winning $3000 off my buddy who trash talks all the time.

    Unless you're sure your buddy would actually pay up, you probably made a bad bet.

    How would that be a stupid bet? You only lose $20. I'm sure you could have used that $20 to buy McDonald's 3 times, but other than that, you could get the chance to $3,000. Just don't expect to get a down payment on something new.

    I doubt his buddy would pay up. His buddy just scored him a $20 bill.

    Ive been friends with the guy for 15 years and we always pay on bets. He's got a cushy $60,000 a year job and is single so he should have no problem paying up.
