You Betcha: Week 5
See that? Over there. To your right?
That's not the money you could be saving with GEICO. It's the money you lost last year betting with Richie Whitt.
But, alas, in the spirit of persistence, stubborness and doubling down, we're back at it again in 2009. I owe it to you and myself (and my bookie) to be bigger, bolder and, yes, better than a putrid 7-10 this season.
Okay, thanks to last week's low-scoring game we're playing with house money. Let's have some fun.
This should be easy. I said should.
We always use the Detroit Lions as our default punch line, but the Kansas City Chiefs have been worse. As in, in their last 29 games they've won twice. Twice!
Watched some of Giants 27, Chiefs 16 last week at Arrowhead and New York could've named its score. I expect a similar blowout Sunday.
The Cowboys are desperate + The Chiefs suck = Dallas blowout. At least by the 9 points.
I started with a mythical bankroll of $10,000, courtesy of bodog Online Gaming. First of all, because their site is easy to navigate. Second, because they're based in Costa Rica and have had minimal success tracking me down in the past.
I'll analyze games/wagers of local interest each weekend and make a wager every Thursday. With any luck, by Christmas it'll be Ferraris and females for everyone.
STARTING BANKROLL: $10,000
CURRENT BANKROLL: $10,500
SEASON RECORD: 2-2
LAST WEEK: 1-0, +$2,500
THIS WEEK: Cowboys -9 over Chiefs for $1,500.
