You Betcha: Week 16

I'll have much much much more on Terrell Owens, Tony Romo and the impending Dallas Star-Telegram later today.

But for now, gimme them dice. I'm on a roll:

Down to my last wager a few weeks back, we're now within one winner of actually outfitting you guys in sexy, shining things this Christmas season.

The Cowboys? I think their season amounts to so much coal in a stocking.

Locker-room drama + injuries = Implosion. I know the Giants' Brandon Jacobs isn't playing Sunday, but I just can't see Dallas righting its physical or psychological ship in time to play a superior game against and elite performance.

My heart says Dallas. My budget says Giants +3.

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 or two every Friday. With any luck, by Christmas it'll be toys for everyone.

STARTING BANKROLL:$10,000

CURRENT BANKROLL: $9,000

SEASON RECORD: 7-8

LAST WEEK: 1-0 (+$2,000)

THIS WEEK: Giants plus 3 for $1,500. - Richie Whitt
