NFL oddsTwo teams that NFL betting players are expecting a lot from this year are Dallas and Tennessee, who will square off on Friday night in the first game in Cowboys Stadium. The Cowboys should be the favorites at home, and after a disappointing opening game in Oakland, they’ll be fired up for the Titans.

Titans vs Cowboys Odds:

  • WHAT: NFL preseason betting action
  • WHEN: Friday, August 21, 8:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, TX
  • PICK: Dallas

Titans vs Cowboys Odds maker breakdown: Offense

The Tony Romo/Jason Witten duo led to a touchdown in Dallas’ 31-10 loss in Oakland, but sportsbook players know they’ll be able to produce. The pressure lies with the rest of the receiving corps, namely Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton, as the Cowboys try to fill the void left by Terrell Owens. Vince Young looked great in Tennessee’s 27-20 win over Tampa Bay, while Kerry Collins threw a pair of picks. Rookie Javon Ringer averaged over seven yards a carry for the Titans as well, and their deep group of running backs is a boost to their betting online chances.

Betting Edge: Tennessee

Titans vs Cowboys Odds maker breakdown: Defense

The Dallas defense looked listless against Oakland, which isn’t a good look if you’re planning to compete in the ultra-tough NFC East. The Cowboys gave up 176 yards on the ground to the Raiders. The Titans’ rushing defense had the same problem against Tampa Bay, allowing 138 yards against the Buccaneers. But they also forced a pair of turnovers, one of which was a 28-yard interception return that was taken back to the house by Ryan Mouton.

Betting Edge: Tennessee

Titans vs Cowboys Odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

Both teams have been giving up far too may yards in terms of penalties, so that has to be sorted out. Dallas’ special teams didn’t really have a chance to show what they could do, although they averaged over 25 yards on kickoff returns, and Mat McBriar boomed a 61-yard punt. Rob Bironas hit both of his field-goal attempts against the Bucs, but that’s about it.

Betting Edge: Dallas

Titans vs Cowboys Odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

Williams is questionable for the Cowboys in this game due to a wrist ailment, which should limit the amount of reps he sees, and the same goes for projected No.1 fullback Deon Anderson, who has a wonky knee. For the Titans, Young was bothered by his hamstring against the Bucs, but he’s probable for the Cowboys. Still, the Titans will want to be gentle with Young after a great performance. Kenny Britt is questionable with an ankle injury, while linebacker Stephen Tulloch (undisclosed) and safety Vincent Fuller (groin) are also questionable.

Betting Edge: Dallas

Titans vs Cowboys betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The Titans used to playing in Houston, which makes this sort of a rivalry game of old state foes, and they’re 2-2 in Dallas. The Cowboys will be playing their first game in their new state-of-the-art stadium, so excitement should be at a high in Cowboys Stadium, and they should be the offshore sportsbook favorite. Dallas’ performance in the first game shouldn’t be too alarming, as it was their first bit of game action, and even though the Titans have the edge on offense and defense, expect the Cowboys to come out with some fire on Friday as they don’t want to disappoint the home fans.
