Houston Texans at Dallas Cowboys

NFL betting on Friday, August 22nd, will be focused on the game between the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys since the game is being televised on CBS.

Since it is the third preseason game of the football betting season, expect to see the starters for both teams play about three quarters. NFL betting should have the Cowboys as a solid favorite in this game since they are at home and have the more talented squad.

NFL betting information shows that the Cowboys are led by quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Terrell Owens. The Dallas offense is always a threat in NFL betting led by Romo. The Cowboys also have a solid running attack according to football betting numbers with Marion Barber and rookie Felix Jones. This game takes on added importance in NFL betting since next week’s game is nothing more than a walk through for most teams as they try to avoid injuries.

NFL betting should be titled toward the Cowboys in this matchup since they are one of the leading Super Bowl contenders this season. And if you don’t think the preseason is important in predicting Super Bowl teams in NFL betting, you might want to think again. Did you know that about 75% of the previous Super Bowl winning teams were .500 or better in the preseason? Yes, the preseason does matter and you can rest assured both Dallas and Houston will be taking this NFL betting matchup seriously.

NFL betting information shows that Houston is led by quarterback Matt Schaub. Football betting numbers show he has the talented Andre Johnson to throw to and a solid running game led by Ahman Green. NFL betting experts know that Houston does not have the explosiveness of Dallas but that they are capable of putting up points. Late in this game it is possible quarterback Sage Rosenfels will see action and he has been a touchdown machine in the preseason according to NFL betting stats. Remember that fact if you are taking the Cowboys in NFL betting this week as Rosenfels could lead the Texans to a late score to cover the football betting number.
