No longer are the Cowboys going to be a lazy team that doesn’t care as the days of taking it easy under Wade Phillips are over. Jason Garrett is in charge and the Cowboys were in full pads this week in practice. The question is now whether Dallas is a team worth taking against the Internet betting NFL odds.
Things can’t be any worse than they were under Wade Phillips. Jason Garrett is already making it known that what went on under Phillips is not going to be tolerated with him as the head coach. Garrett said he expects a full effort from his team this week as they play the New York Giants. The past two weeks the Cowboys quit and they were humiliated in losses to Jacksonville and Green Bay. Phillips had to be fired and Garrett should change the culture.
Cowboys a Big Underdog
Do you remember the last time you saw the Dallas Cowboys as a 14-point underdog in Internet betting NFL odds? It has been a long, long time since the Cowboys were this bad. The interesting part about this week’s line is that it was made based on what the team had done under Phillips. Dallas could be a much different team with Jason Garrett in charge. There is still a lot of talent on the Cowboys. Keep in mind that this was a team expected to go to the Super Bowl this season but they have been lazy, undisciplined and not motivated to play good football. That should change under Jason Garrett. Whether it changes enough this week for them to cover the 14 points against the Giants is the question. The Cowboys still have Jon Kitna at quarterback so that is a concern although the play of Kitna has not been the main problem for Dallas in recent weeks. It is a bad defense and a bad attitude that has caused Dallas to get blown out. Dallas might actually have some value against the NFL online betting odds this week at the Sbg global sportsbook.
