Football betting has the unbeaten Denver Broncos underdogs at home against the 2-1 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Many people are shocked to see Denver at 3-0 and they are not getting much respect in NFL betting odds. Football betting favors the Cowboys by three-points in this game with a total of 42.5. The Broncos have been the biggest football betting surprise this season with new head coach Josh McDaniels.
They really should be 2-1 but got a miracle win in their opener against the Bengals. Denver is not a football betting fluke though as they have a solid defense and an offense that is pounding teams by running the ball. Correll Buckhalter and rookie Knowshon Moreno lead a Denver team that ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing yards with 484. Quarterback Kyle Orton has been efficient and Denver is a shocking 3-0. "What we have, how we’ve practiced, what we’ve assembled here and the way we go about our business has never changed. And we feel good about that," McDaniels said. "We’ve always had confidence regardless of anybody else’s opinion."
The Cowboys have the higher NFL betting profile but they are 2-1 and have some issues in the backfield. Both Marion Barber and Felix Jones are dealing with injuries but Barber may return for this football betting game. The Cowboys lead the NFL in rushing with 581 yards. Third-string running back Tashard Choice had 82 yards and a touchdown last week in the football betting win over Carolina. The Cowboys will be facing the NFL’s top ranked defense as football betting stats show. The Broncos are giving up just 5.3 points per game. "I don’t think you anticipate only giving up one touchdown in 180 minutes of football," McDaniels said. "But we thought we had a chance to be a pretty good defense, physical up front, good secondary, tackled fairly well here in the first three weeks of the season."
There are some definite concerns if you like Dallas in football betting. The Cowboys are 2-5 in NFL betting in their last 7 games in October. The Cowboys are 2-5 in football betting in their last 7 road games.
The NFL betting trends on Denver are mixed. The Broncos are 6-1-1 in football betting in their last 8 games as a home underdog. The Broncos are 13-29-1 in football betting in their last 43 games overall.
