Browns Cowboys Betting Predictions – Colts And Cowboys Lock Horns In Suburban Dallas
The Cleveland Browns and Dallas Cowboys are under the .500 mark, but one of these teams has a better chance of making something out of its season than the other one does.
Cleveland Browns @ Dallas Cowboys – Sunday, October 21
NFL betting line: Dallas -8
Why Cleveland Will Win
The betting websites that follow the NFL with vigilance are impressed with the extent to which the Cleveland Browns are continuing to compete. One should realize that the Browns' most recent opponent, the Baltimore Ravens, crushed the Oakland Raiders, 55-20, this past weekend. What does that outcome mean for the Browns as they get ready to go to Dallas? For one thing, Cleveland's 22-15 loss to Baltimore looks a lot better. The Browns' defense is clearly offering robust opposition to the NFL offenses it faces each and every week. Cleveland can certainly contain Dallas' offense and the Cowboys' manifestly inconsistent quarterback, Tony Romo, in this contest.
Moreover, the Baltimore-Oakland result also shows that unlike the Raiders, Cleveland has not mailed in its season. Remember that the Browns have undergone an ownership change in the midst of this season. Mike Holmgren is out as a front office leader, and the general manager's position could also be changed under incoming president Joe Banner, who formerly served as the head honcho for the Philadelphia Eagles' football operations division. Cleveland players know that for the rest of the season, they are auditioning for jobs. This is keeping the Browns motivated, and it's a big reason why Cleveland can win on the road against a Dallas team that has already lost multiple home games this season.
Why Dallas Will Win
When playing online poker, you need to shrug off adversity and keep forging ahead. That's what the Dallas Cowboys are beginning to do. Dallas could have crumbled into a ball and assumed a fetal position this past weekend in Philadelphia against the Eagles. Dallas has gotten whacked by the Eagles on many prior occasions in Philadelphia, suffering some of its worst defeats in the tenure of current owner Jerry Jones. The temptation for Dallas to spiral downward was so pronounced after a wrenching and close loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday Night Football. However, just when the season was on the verge of slipping completely away, the Cowboys rescued it in Philadelphia by hammering the Eagles, 38-23.
Romo answered the call, as did receiver Dez Bryant, who shut out various controversies and internal team intrigues to play a big-boy game under pressure. The Cowboys have regained a winning edge and have restored a lot of the confidence that eluded them in previous weeks. The quality of their opponent is quite low; Cleveland has benefited from playing some struggling opponents in the games it has won this season.
Who Will Win
Indeed, the momentum lies with the Cowboys here. Dallas is a much more talented team, and the Cowboys should also be emotionally relaxed after fighting off Philadelphia in a high-pressure situation the week before.
