You Betcha Week 6: Cowboys Over Bye; Eagles Over Giants

    I long ago burned out on Fantasy Football. I can’t wrap my little brain around the FanDuelDraftKings craze. And I’ve wasted lots of time and a little money on not finishing first in those Eliminator Pools. But, alas, like of fans, I do like to have a little extra interest in Cowboys games.

    So let’s do this: I just robbed an imaginary bank and pocketed a virtual $1,000. What better way to spend it than on some mythical wagering.I’ll start with my $1k bankroll and each week – usually on Thursday or Friday – I’ll analyze the upcoming Cowboys game and make a wager. With any luck, by Christmas it’ll be iPhone upgrades for everyone.

    Do I think we’ll win? You betcha!

    This week I’m releasing my guaranteed Lock of the Year! Take it to the bank, the Cowboys won’t lose this week. Or win. Or tie.

    After a Sunday Bloody Sunday in which they looked like the JV against the Patriots – that one was too easy to pick – the Cowboys will enjoy their Bye this week. Time to heal injuries. Lick wounds. And, most importantly, change quarterbacks.

    But before we get to assess Matt Cassel vs. the Giants next week, there must be money to win out there somewhere.

    Found it.

    Let’s keep this all in the family and wager on the NFC East. I’m not saying the Eagles have suddenly patched their sinking ship, but I’m also not convinced the Giants’ rally against the horrible 49ers is a sign they’re a legit team. In a game I hope ends in a scoreless tie, give me the Eagles at home.

    STARTING BANKROLL: $1,000

    CURRENT BANKROLL: $910

    SEASON RECORD: 2-3

    LAST WEEK: 1-0, +300

    THIS WEEK: Eagles minus-4 over Giants for $100
