Cowboys Bengals Betting Predictions – Cowboys, Bengals Clash With Major Playoff Implications On The Line

Posted by Tony Bryant on 12/3/2012 5:49:47 PM

The Dallas Cowboys managed to remain in the thick of the NFC Wild Card race with a close win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football. A date this Sunday against a Cincinnati Bengals’ team that has won four-straight won’t be nearly as easy. The Cowboys can potentially close the gap and move in to a tie for the final Wild Card spot with a win and a Seattle Seahawks’ loss, but Cincinnati has designs of its own on the AFC Wild Card spot heading in to another crucial sports betting contest for both teams.

The Bengals had lost three-straight at home and four-straight games overall before a four-game win streak launched them back in to contention in the AFC North. With two of their final three games on the road and a home and away at the Pittsburgh Steelers and then home to the Baltimore Ravens, there still isn’t much room for error.

The rollercoaster ride that has been this football season in Dallas continued last weekend with a close win over a struggling Eagles’ team that has now lost eight-straight, a contest in which the Cowboys trailed until the fourth quarter. A 21-3 run in the final frame helped make the difference, including a 50-yard fumble return for a score by Morris Claiborne with under four minutes to play. Dallas didn’t turn the ball over once in that victory, underlying the slim margin of error the team is operating under. Tony Romo threw for 303 yards and three scores to pass Troy Aikman for first place on the Cowboys’ all-time touchdowns list, and will continue to pace an offense that lacks a legitimate rushing attack.

The Bengals’ defense has been strong against both the run and pass this season, but despite the improvements they have made are still susceptible to the big play. Cincinnati held the San Diego Chargers to just 297 yards of total offense in last week’s win and registered four sacks, surviving despite two interceptions from quarterback Andy Dalton, and three turnovers overall. Dalton did throw for 211 yards and a score, but it will be important for him to make better decisions down the stretch. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed for 118 yards on 4.7 yards per carry, and will need another big game this week.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Cowboys’ inconsistencies this season have been no secret, but they avoided forcing the issue when they were down last online sportsbook week, and showed resilience in a win where it looked at times as though they would fall apart. Cincinnati has managed to win four-straight despite struggling at times, and could be vulnerable as the pressure continues to build toward the final stretch.
