Dolphins Cowboys Betting – Cowboys Welcome Dolphins For A Classic Tilt
Bill Parcells’ latest reconstruction project travels to Houston to take on the legendary football lifer’s former project this Thursday, when the Miami Dolphins visit the Dallas Cowboys in the final contest of the preseason for both teams. Parcells came out of retirement to take over the reigns in Dallas in 2003 following the Cowboys’ third straight 5-11 season, and immediately made his impact felt as the team finished 10-6 in 2004, laying the foundation for the success that has continued up to today. Following a third retirement, Parcells joined the Dolphin as the Vice President of Football Operations in 2007, and again worked his magic by helping to turn a 1-15 team in to an 11-5 playoff club the next year. Now, three years later, the legendary head coach will sit down to watch two teams he helped build complete their exhibition schedule.

Why To Bet On The Dolphins?
The Dolphins opened the preseason with consecutive wins in Florida, beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home before heading to Jacksonville for a close win over the Jaguars. Miami’s hot preseason would cool down a bit with a visit from the Atlanta Falcons, which swarmed around quarterback Chad Henne and limited the Dolphins offense. The fins opened the game with a field goal just over two minutes in, but would only manage to add another three points the rest of the way. The fact that the starters get the most time in the third game of the preseason is reason to believe that the Miami coaches aren’t happy about their last performance, which should lead to a little more urgency to get things right in the final contest.
Why To Bet On The Cowboys?
Unlike many teams around the league, the Cowboys are already set at the majority of the positions, as there is not much to change for a Dallas unit that won the NFC East championship just one year ago. The Cowboys have played one game more than any team other than the Cincinnati Bengals, who they beat in this year’s installment of the Hall of Fame game. Dallas opens the season on the road in Washington, and will likely want to leave town with some momentum behind them by giving the home football betting fans a win.
How The Game Will Play Out
While the Dolphins’ quarterback situation is deep with both Chad Henne and Chad Pennington, neither is as talented as Dallas’ Tony Romo, and Jon Kitna is no slouch either. The Cowboys were beaten and bruised by the Houston Texans in the “Texas Bowl” the last time that they were on the field, and will want to make sure they turn things around to avoid entering the regular season on a down note. The Dolphins have nothing to prove, and will not want to risk injury in a final road preseason game.
