Bet With The Devil!

Hello FML! Devil here, with a new (hopefully weekly) thread. As you all may know, I have a knack for betting, but my bets have been made infrequently and decided on the spot. This Summer Season, that all changes! I'll be opening my bets up to every single member of FML! Think you can best the Devil at a bet? Well, put your money where your mouth is and take me up on one!


Here's how it'll work: Below is a list of my personal thoughts on certain movies this week. If you disagree with any of them, post a comment on which movie you disagree with and it's a bet! The bet will be a simple over or under bet and stakes will be by default $5 paid via Venmo. And that's it! Any number of FMLers can latch onto one specific bet, and any one FMLer can latch onto as many bets as they want. This thread will be open for the next 9 hours. Without further ado, here's what you're betting on (Parentheses show which players have taken the bet):


  • I BELIEVE THAT:
  • The Secret Life of Pets 2 will go OVER 46M (SCV, RFF)
  • Dark Phoenix will go UNDER 42M
  • Aladdin will go OVER 23.5M
  • Ma will go UNDER 7.7M (Phil, Stark, BBH)
  • John Wick Chapter 3 will go OVER 6.2M
  • Avengers: Endgame will go OVER 4.4M (Jak, RFF, Dubs, BBH)
  • Detective Pikachu will go UNDER 4M
  • A Dog's Journey will go OVER 650K (Blink, Jak)


That's all! If you have your own bet that's not on here, propose it in the comments and see if anyone (including myself) is down to bet you. If you'd like to change the stakes, you can do that too! Good luck to all who bet.

    I am on team Blinkh here. But it is a narrow margin and not enough for me to bet on.

    Remember when it used to be enough just to bet for a name change?


    No offense to you specifically @devil, but perhaps we ought to make the financial aspect of our FML betting less important. Just a thought.

    You're always welcome to set up a competing thread with your proposal 4th. And @devil is just making the offer - it is degenerates like myself that are making this happen. Don't hate the player - hate the game.

    So you agree with Devil? You gotta take opposite of him.
