Projected to be among two of the favorites in the NFC before the betting on NFL season got underway, the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings are both off to their worst start in years, with identical 1-3 records. Both teams are coming off crucial losses following the first bye week of the season, and although there has been no definitive talk about either head coach losing their job, a 1-4 start for either Wade Phillips or Brad Childress could very well signal the end of their times in Dallas or Minnesota respectively.

NFL Betting: Dallas Cowboys @ Minnesota Vikings

Online Sports Betting: Vikings – 1

That notion provides even more hype for what is amounting to be the matchup of the week, as the Cowboys trail the Washington Redskins by two games for first place in the NFC East division, while the Vikings are three back of the Chicago Bears in the NFC North.

Why To Bet On The Cowboys?

It seems as though no matter what the Cowboys do, there is always a leak somewhere in their game that is exploited. The first two weeks of the season, the Cowboys couldn’t score points. Last week, they couldn’t stop the Tennessee Titans from putting them up in a 34-27 loss. While Dallas ranks third in passing offense, that number has actually worked against them in many ways considering that they have been unable to maintain a consistent rushing attack. With a pass and rush defense that both rank in the upper-half of the league, perhaps this will be the week that the Cowboys put all the pieces of their game together and get back on track before and NFC East showdown at home to the New York Giants.

Why To Bet On The Vikings?

The Vikings have hit rock-bottom this season after being projected to at least reach the playoffs in 2010-11. Minnesota has lost three of its first four games, has had their roster devastated by injuries, and has been rocked by the latest scandal featuring their veteran quarterback Brett Favre, whose body may no longer be able to take the beating he has felt over the first few weeks of the season. The Vikings have made a conscious effort to go back to their running game one year after Favre’s best season of his career and his first in purple, but even though running back Adrian Peterson has rushed for 5.5 yards per carry and three touchdowns, the offense has had major troubles moving the ball. That lack of consistency has had a ripple effect on the defense as well. With the rush defense ranked 14th in the league after never finishing out of the football bettingtop-two the past couple of seasons.

How The Game Will Play Out

Favre is hobbled at the quarterback spot with a sore arm, and even with new wide receiver Randy Moss to throw to, he may not be able to get the ball there. The Cowboys are hurting all around, but are healthy enough that they should be able to take advantage of a demoralized Vikings’ team.
