I learned my lesson to not post the "I bet you a million dollar" bets.
At best, you get to beat your chest and exclaim "look at me, I was right, bow down!", to a crowd of people who largely don't care. You might get a couple people congratulate you, but most people will roll their eyes and say "whatever". Within a week, no one will remember. Would anyone have even raised an eyebrow if the Denver Tebows lost last year? No.

If it doesn't work out, everyone is laser-focused on your wager and you either have to not post for a while, or catch a lot of hell for it for a while.
