How To Bet On Bears Cowboys – Boys Get It Right At Home
Chicago Bears @ Dallas Cowboys – Monday October 1, 2012 8:30PM EST
It is always fun to hear the NFL betting experts talk about an NFL team’s record on Monday Night Football like it has significance for the upcoming game. Some teams go years without playing a Monday Night Football game and the players that played in the last game are probably retired by now. The Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears play a lot on Monday Night Football, so the national attention is nothing new to either team. But it is rare in the past few years that these two teams meet when they are both leading their respective divisions.
The Dallas Cowboys, as usual, are hard to predict. The Cowboys beat the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants and the up and coming Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but get destroyed by the Seattle Seahawks. In all fairness to Seattle, the sports betting experts know that the Seahawks have a punishing defense. The Bears do not present the same challenge to the Cowboys that the Seahawks did, and that will be significant when it comes time to determine who got the best of who in this contest.
Why the Chicago Bears Will Win
The Bears have beaten two weak opponents this season (Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams) and lost to one quality opponent (Green Bay Packers). But quarterback Jay Cutler and his offense really seemed to find their groove in the win over the Rams. Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall looked comfortable together and the offensive line was offering Cutler plenty of protection. The Bears will need to build on that success to stop what is rapidly becoming an improved Dallas Cowboys defense.
Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win
The best online betting sites agree with Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones when he says that the window of opportunity for this group of Cowboys, specifically quarterback Tony Romo, is closing. The core Cowboys are getting older and it is now or never if Romo wants to become a championship quarterback. The Cowboys have made significant changes on defense that are already starting to show dividends. Romo has the weapons he needs to be successful. Now it is up to him to put those weapons to work and turn the Cowboys into a Super Bowl contender.
The Bottom Line
The jury will continue to be out on Tony Romo until he wins a Super Bowl. If that day never comes, then he will be written off as another quarterback that just could not cut it in the NFL. But if he can get this group of Cowboys to start seeing the bigger picture, then Romo could be on his way to finally making himself look like the championship quarterback that many people believe that he is.
Pick: Dallas Cowboys
