Ok, here are my wagers for this weekend
Kansas (+17) at Texas Tech. True, Tech hasn't played anyone yet. But they still have offensive firepower. Plus, the game is in Lubbock. Got a dollar on Tech.

Baylor (+22) at Texas A&M. Aggies have been pointing at this game for a long time. Baylor upset the Aggies in Waco last year, and students tore down the goal post and left it on Baylor's president's front yard. There are some pissed off Aggies, and Kyle Field will be rocking. Got a dollar on A&M.

And double down (if I win these previous two bets) on Sunday's game between Dallas (+3) at Oakland. Dallas proved last Sunday that their secondary is still suspect, and Oakland has that guy named Moss. Plus, Oakland has played a tough three game stretch. Probably the best 0 and 3 team in the NFL. Double down on Oakland.

There we are, folks. Papa wants a new ipod!

2. Sorry about your bookie. Maybe we can hook up next week
The Aggies are sure looking like shit. Looks like I'm 0 and 1. Hoping for better luck tonight from Tech.

3. I'm tempted to bet Dallas
:D

Don't feel too bad about today's games. I had a buddy call me a little while ago and he lost over 400 bucks today.

4. Thank you, RR
Both Tech and A&M let me down. Oh well, so is a gamblin' life.

Dallas has been on the west coast all week, and they won't have the travel and jet lag. However, I can't see Oakland going 0 and 4. They've played a tough schedule thus far, and I believe they're due. Especially if Dallas' defense plays as badly as they did last week.

6. I think Steve Young said it best
"the best team at 0-3? great, they're still 0-3 for a reason."

5. I graduated from A&M, and I'd have bet on Baylor.
Baylor/A&M games are always close.
