Cowboys vs Broncos Odds - Dallas will prove the Broncos are frauds

Posted by Stan Simmons on 9/29/2009 2:00:21 PM
NFL oddsCowboys vs Broncos odds feature an undefeated squad but, surprisingly, it's Denver. Sportsbook fans probably didn't count on such a hot start by the Broncos after an offseason of turmoil - but they can count on Denver crashing back to earth against the Cowboys. Dallas is the superior football team in all phases of the game, regardless of what the numbers say.

Cowboys vs Broncos odds: Cowboys -3; total 43.5

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Sunday, October 4, 4:15 p.m. ET
  • WHERE: Invesco Field at Mile High
  • KEY STAT: Denver's wins have come against opponents that are 3-6
  • PICK: Cowboys -3; under 43.5

Cowboys vs Broncos odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
Much to the amazement of NFL betting fans everywhere, the Broncos are 3-0 and leading the AFC West heading into NFL Week 4 betting. That may not last for long, however - this Cowboys game kicks off a seven-game stretch that includes the Patriots, Chargers (twice), Ravens, Steelers and Giants. Dallas, on the other hand, got a sorely needed win against Carolina on Monday. Expected to contend for the NFC crown, the Cowboys have struggled despite a 2-1 record.

Cowboys vs Broncos odds maker breakdown: Offense
Both teams are getting by with their impressive running games. Dallas leads the league at 193.7 yards per outing, impressive considering Marion Barber missed Monday's 21-7 win over the Panthers; Denver's similar committee approach has racked up 158.7 yards per game. Even though Tony Romo hasn't played particularly well his past two starts, he gives Dallas an edge at quarterback over Kyle Orton and the Broncos.

Betting Edge: Dallas

Cowboys vs Broncos odds maker breakdown: Defense
Is the Orange Crush back? Denver is inexplicably at the top of the NFL in fewest yards (214.7) and points (5.3) allowed per game. Don't expect that trend to last, however - most teams would have similar success against the Bengals, Browns and Raiders. Dallas is hoping it opened the floodgates; after being shut out over the first two games, the Cowboys picked up three sacks and three takeaways on Monday. Now that the ball is rolling, there's no doubt Dallas is a more talented unit.

Betting Edge: Dallas

Cowboys vs Broncos odds for total: 43.5
Give Denver a smidgeon of credit for its defensive effort this season; mix that and Marion Barber's health concerns and the Cowboys aren't exactly primed for a 30-point outburst. Denver, meanwhile, has struggled to pile up the points and Dallas' defense may have figured things out last week. There likely won't be a ton of points on the board this week.

Pick: Under 43.5

Cowboys vs Broncos odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Marion Barber is a key cog in the Dallas rushing game but he'll likely be back against Denver. Still, keep an eye on his aggravated thigh. He's the only major injury concern for online sports betting fans.

Betting Edge: Denver

Cowboys vs Broncos betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
Records aside, Dallas is a better football team. Denver has raced to a 3-0 start thanks to rather shoddy competition, while the Cowboys' lone loss came against the Giants, a Super Bowl contender. Whether or not Romo brings his "A" game shouldn't matter - Dallas will walk all over the Broncos.

STAN’S PICK: Cowboys -3
