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.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
