Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos

Football betting on the matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos in preseason.

NFL week 2 odds should be competitive as the Cowboys are thought of as the top team in the NFC according to football betting experts while the Broncos are at home. NFL betting last week saw both teams lose in their preseason openers.

Football betting is always popular on the Cowboys but they did not come through last week against San Diego in preseason play, losing 31-17 in NFL betting. The starters played well for the Cowboys but the backups did not and Dallas was the football betting loser. Starting quarterback Tony Romo was a perfect three-for-three on pass attempts according to football betting stats, leading the offense on a 54-yard scoring drive to give the Cowboys the early lead and the starting defense played well on the first series. A pass interference penalty on the second series set up the Chargers first touchdown according to NFL betting stats. Football betting stats show that backup quarterback Brad Johnson was 8 of 15 for 89 yards but he did throw an interception that set up the Chargers second TD. Dallas got nice play out of their rookie running backs as Felix Jones and Tashard Choice both looked good according to football betting experts. Choice led the Cowboys in rushing with 40 yards according to NFL betting stats.

Denver was also a football betting loser last week. They played well at times but couldn’t score many touchdowns and lost in football betting to the Houston Texans 19-16. An interesting football betting note tells us that the first string offensive line played almost the whole first half last week for the Broncos. Denver quarterback Jay Cutler was 8-10 in his short time according to football betting numbers. "I am very pleased with Jay as well as the offense," Denver head coach Mike Shanahan said. "That was pretty good to get a drive like that especially after not doing anything on your first series."

NFL week 2 odds should have this game near a pick with a football betting total around 37.
