NFL Betting – Cowboys Favored at Home vs. Jaguars

The Dallas Cowboys are favored at home on Sunday in NFL betting as they host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

It has not been a banner season so far for the Cowboys but gamblers making an NFL bet want no part of a Jacksonville team that has looked very poor the past two weeks.

Quarterback Issue
The question for Jacksonville will be the status of starting quarterback David Garrard.  The Jaguars are simply not a team you can take unless Garrard is healthy. He missed last week’s game due to a concussion so check on his status before you make an NFL bet at Sbgglobal on this contest.

It could be Over for Jacksonville
The Cowboys may have a better shot of making the playoffs than Jacksonville. This team somehow won three games earlier this season but the party is over. Head coach Jack Del Rio is almost assuredly not going to be back next season.  The team started 3-2 but they have looked bad the past two weeks and after they lose this game they will be 3-5 and everyone will be calling for Del Rio’s head.  Somehow the Jaguars beat Indianapolis but that was a fluke. This is not a good team.

Jaguars in Last Place
The other problem for Jacksonville is that they play in a brutal division. They are in last place and have no realistic chance of catching any of the teams in front of them. Indianapolis, Houston and Tennessee are all superior to Jacksonville. The Jaguars did get a decent game out of third-string quarterback Todd Bouman but the bottom line is that he still threw interceptions that cost his team the game.

Brief Series
The Jaguars and Cowboys have met just four times in history and the series is tied at 2-2.  The last meeting was in 2006 in Jacksonville and the Jaguars won 24-17 at home. The Cowboys won 21-19 in Dallas in 2002. Three of the four all-time meetings have gone over the total.

Cowboys worth a Play
It is hard to say this but the Cowboys look to be the way to go in this game in NFL betting. They are still poorly coached but they have more talent than Jacksonville and at least in this game they will not be outcoached as Del Rio is just as bad as Wade Phillips.
