Titans Cowboys Betting – Cowboys Looking Up In NFC East After Bye Week
The Dallas Cowboys won the battle of Texas right before heading into their week three bye, ensuring they wouldn’t go the first four weeks of the betting on NFL season without registering a win. At 1-2 to start the year, Dallas finds itself looking up at the other three teams in the NFC East, who are all .500 through the season’s quarter mark. Dallas has a tough three-week schedule, with this weekend’s match up against the Tennessee Titans preceding dates at the Minnesota Vikings and then home against the New York Giants.
NFL Betting: Tennessee Titans @ Dallas Cowboys
Online Sports Betting: Dallas – 6.5
The Titans are in a bit of a jam themselves after allowing the Denver Broncos to come back and score a late touchdown to fall behind the Houston Texans for top spot in the AFC South. Tennessee will play three of its next four on the road, including at Dallas and the division rival Jacksonville Jaguar, followed by a game at the San Diego Chargers that precedes its bye week two weeks later.
Why To Bet On The Titans?
Quarterback Vince Young hasn’t thrown for a completion percentage under 60 so far this season, but at the same time his mark has gone down with every start since the opener. That may have something to do with him being asked to do more, but either way the onus will be on Young to help get the Titans back to their winning ways in the state where he played his college football betting days. Running back Chris Johnson has averaged just 3.8 yards per carry through the first four weeks of the season, and fans in the Music City are just waiting for him to explode. The Broncos were the first team to hit 20 points against Tennessee this season with their late touchdown, so expect the Tennessee defense to respond this weekend.
Why To Bet On The Cowboys?
The Cowboys could not seem to get anything going offensively in each of the first two weeks of the season, even despite a talented team that boasts several Pro Bowl talents. A big part of the onus fell on offensive coordinator Jason Garrett after week two, with the criticism featuring the OC’s decision not to run the ball more. With running back Felix Jones averaging four yards per carry, and fresh off a bye week, look for the Cowboys to run the ball more. Tony Romo has averaged over 300 yards per game this year, and that should continue against a Titans’ defense that looked relatively soft against the Broncos’ Kyle Orton.
How The Game Will Play Out
Dallas is coming off the bye with a chance to potentially move into a tie for first in the division, and with the depth that the NFC East boasts, it will be crucial for the Cowboys to avoid falling two games below .500. The Titans are traveling after a heartbreaking home loss, and that spells trouble.
