You Betcha: Week 12

Lee Trevino always says pressure isn’t trying to make a putt to win The Masters.

“Pressure,” he maintains, “is trying to make a putt for a $10 bet with only $5 in your pocket.”

I feel ya, Merry Mex. Unfortunately, I feel ya loud and clear.

With my gas tank on “E” and my Super Bowl prediction clinging by a hangnail, I’m counting on the Dallas Cowboys to finally play like the Dallas Cowboys. If not – best-laid plans be damned – we’ll be bankrupt by Thanksgiving. I’ll need a loan.

And Wade Phillips will need a new job.

I could give you Xs and Os about the why the Cowboys are going to win and win big Sunday in Washington. Or I could give you 10 reasons why Dallas will chalk up another W in the NFL’s best rivalry.

Bottom line: The Cowboys are more talented. It’s time for that to show.

Or else.

I started with a mythical bankroll of $10,000, courtesy of Bodog sports 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 or two every Friday. With any luck, by Christmas it’ll be toys for everyone.

STARTING BANKROLL: $10,000 CURRENT BANKROLL: $1,000 SEASON RECORD: 3-8 LAST WEEK: 0-1 (+ $1,000) THIS WEEK: Cowboys minus 1 ½ over Redskins for $1,000. – Richie Whitt
