How To Bet On Dolphins Cowboys – America's Team Is Struggling In Preseason
Miami Dolphins @ Dallas Cowboys – Wednesday August 29, 2012 8:30PM EST
The football betting experts cannot help but notice that things are not going well for the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason. Top wide receiver Miles Austin and wide receiver Dez Bryant have both run into injury problems in the preseason. Miles Austin has already missed significant time in his career due to injury, and Dez Bryant is starting to show an alarming pattern towards being injured frequently. The offensive line in Dallas is almost completely new, and it is showing its inexperience. Quarterback Tony Romo is unable to get comfortable in the pocket and things just keep getting worse for the Cowboys.
In Miami, things appear to be looking up. Some of the best online betting sites wondered if releasing veteran wide receiver Chad Johnson was a mistake by the Dolphins, but it appears to have been the right move. Some of the younger receivers are stepping up, and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill is developing a rapport with his new receivers. Tannehll has been named the regular season week one starter for Miami. But it is unclear as to whether or not Tannehill will retain that position when David Garrard comes back from injury.
Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win
The one shining spot in Cowboys training camp has been its defense. Now that defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has had a chance to spend an entire summer with his defense, and he is getting some of the parts he really needs through the draft, the Dallas defense is looking much better than last season. Cornerback Morris Claiborne seems to be fitting right in with the rest of the defense and all-pro defensive lineman Demarcus Ware also looks ready for the season to start. If the Dallas offense can catch up, then this will be a dangerous team.
Why the Dolphins Will Win
Miami seems to finally be headed in the right direction. The NFL betting world had given up on the wildcat as a primary offensive formation long before the Dolphins did, but now it looks like Miami is ready to play a standard offense. The Miami defense is still trying to find the parts that will fit together. Luckily for the Dolphins, it does have some young talent to browse through that will make the team successful in the future. In this game, the Dolphins will look to keep riding the wave of offensive momentum it has built.
The Bottom Line
The Dallas Cowboys are still reeling from injuries and look a little disorganized on the field. The offensive line is not playing well and the running game is suffering because of it. The Dolphins are young, confident and ready to compete. This will be a game where Ryan Tannehill lets the rest of the league know that he is ready to start in the regular season.
Pick: Miami Dolphins
