NEW YORK (CBS) In sports, players' girlfriends are almost as important to fans as their trainers. This is especially important in the realm of sports betting.

So some Dallas Cowboy fans are rejoicing at news that Miles Austin is dating reality star Kim Kardashian.

For those of you unaware of the world of high-stakes sports gambling, dating the "wrong" beautiful singer, actress or TV personality, can be viewed as a bad omen. For example, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did not fare well on the gridiron when he was dating singer Jessica Simpson. It was dubbed the "Yoko Romo" curse by sports fans and pundits.

So, when Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin reportedly became linked to "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" siren Kim Kardashian, fans and football enthusiasts alike were wondering how the team will fare in the romance.

If you skew on the side of shamrocks and other good luck charms, there's favorable news.

Kardashian was a fixture at New Orleans Saints games this year when Reggie Bush, her former boyfriend, and his teammates won the Super Bowl.

Furthermore, Kardashian's sister, Khloe, was hubby Lamar Odom's good luck charm when the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA title in June.

The oddsmakers at YouWager.com, a leading sportsbook with management and line-makers, has put together odds on the future of an Austin-Kardashian match. It seems like the smart money is betting Kardashian will return to the comfort of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The odds only figure 5 percent that Kardashian and Austin will announce an engagement.

Betting on the least likely outcome could win someone a lot of money. Maybe for these two, celebrity and sports can make a winning mix.
