The Cowboys are at home and most gamblers expect them to have a bounce back week in NFL betting.
Who do you Trust? When you bet this game at the Sbg global sportsbook you have to decide who you trust. Do you trust a Dallas team coached by Wade Phillips or do you trust a Chicago team with Jay Cutler at quarterback? It doesn’t sound like much of a choice does it? Gamblers are likely to trust the Cowboys more since they are at home.
Dallas is a nine-point favorite in NFL betting in this game with the total at 41. The Cowboys did not look good on offense last week as they lost at Washington. Quarterback Tony Romo didn’t get good pass protection and for the most part the Cowboys struggled to move the ball. The Cowboys defense was very good though as the only TD that Washington scored came on defense. The Cowboys committed 12 penalties in the loss, the last of which negated a game-winning touchdown. Romo finished 31 of 47 passes for 282 yards and Miles Austin had 10 catches for 146 yards.
Lucky Bears – The Bears were lucky to escape Detroit last week with a straight up win but they did not cover the NFL betting online number. The Bears gave up a catch to Detroit’s Calvin Johnson at the end of the game that was thought to be a touchdown before replay showed Johnson didn’t totally control the ball after hitting the ground. The Bears made a ton of mistakes and even though Jay Cutler threw for 372 yards, the offense was sporadic. The Bears outgained the Lions 463-168 but turned the ball over four times. So what else is new? Cutler is a turnover machine.
Only Two Meetings since 1998 – The Bears and Cowboys have met only twice since 1998. The Cowboys won 21-7 at home in 2004 and they won 34-10 at Chicago in 2007.
Dallas - If the Cowboys are to be considered serious contenders in the NFC then they have to win this game impressively. Even with Wade Phillips as their head coach, the Cowboys should be able to handle Cutler and the Bears in this game.
