Can Cowboys Be Trusted as Monday Night Football Betting Favorite?

November 3, 2018 NFL Football, Sports Betting

At the onset of the Pro Football betting season Dallas was tabbed as the team to beat in the NFC East.  In fact, with Dak Prescott under center the Cowboys were considered a complete team.  But so far, the offense has sputtered and Prescott’s lack of supporting cast has been revealed.  In the same way Tennessee figured to contend for the AFC South after making the playoff last year.  Cause by one of the worst offenses in the NFL the Titans are fighting for their lives.  As a matter of fact, quarterback Marcus Mariota’s career is disintegrating.

Titans vs. Cowboys TV Coverage:  ESPN

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee has a Football betting record of 3-4 straight up but 4-3 against the spread.  Of great concern is the precipitous drop in offensive production for the Titans.  To illuminate Tennessee ranks 30th in the NFL for both total and scoring offense.  Balanced against that is a defense that ranks third for points allowed.  Above all the decline in play of Marcus Mariota has been a major disappointment.  Mariota has dropped to a 78.5 rating with three touchdowns and five interceptions.  Last time out the Titans last 20-19 to the LA Chargers but paid as 6.5-point dogs.

Dallas Cowboys

Dallas is 3-4 straight up and vs. the line with five of their games going under the total.  Following a 20-17 loss at Washington the Cowboys were on a bye week.  Along the same lines of Tennessee, the Cowboys are struggling at offense and quarterbacking.  For example, the Cowboys rank 28th for total offense and 26th for scoring.  Contrarily the strong Dallas defense is preventing utter disaster.  Namely the Cowboys rank third for total defense and second for points allowed.  Dak Prescott has an 87.4 rating with eight touchdowns and four interceptions.

Stats to Consider

Tennessee has shown Sports betting improvement as a road dog recently.  Hence the Titans mark of three payouts in their last four as away pups.  Five of their last eight in that role have gone under the total.  Counter to that is the weak betting value of Dallas as a home chalk.  Consider the Cowboys have paid in just four of their last 11 laying points at AT&T Stadium.  Also, Dallas has gone over the total in five of their last eight in that situation

Team vs. Team

Fashion this head to head series with Dallas covering three of the last four.  Five of the last eight between these teams have gone under the total.  But at Dallas the Titans have paid in four of their last five visits.  Three of those five games went under the total.

Matchup to Watch

Tennessee may have overthought things last year when they fired head coach Mike Mularkey despite making the playoffs.  As a matter of fact, the team has regressed under replacement Mike Vrabel.  Owing to Prescott the Cowboys have the Football betting advantage in this matchup.  Specifically, both teams have strong defenses so Prescott is the difference.

Titans vs. Cowboys Football Betting Picks

To conclude the Titans regression makes them a team that cannot earn a recommendation.  Thus, Dallas rates the grudging call.
