Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys – Football Betting

December 1st, 2010 NFL Football

The Cowboys get a lot of attention each week in pro football betting but they have been continually overvalued because of their popularity.

NFL Week 8 odds on this game are likely to be very unpredictable since the status of quarterback Tony Romo is up in the air.

Football betting history shows that the Bucs and Cowboys have met four times this decade with the Bucs winning three of the four games.  The one Dallas win came two years ago at home when they routed the Bucs by a score of 38-10 according to football betting stats.  Until that game the series had been dominated by Tampa Bay in football betting and each game was a slugfest according to football betting history.  The games in 2000, 2001 and 2003 all went under the pro football betting total and none of the games cleared 35 points.   The Bucs have gone under the football betting total about 60% of the time on the road since 2005 according to football betting stats.

This football betting matchup is another one where the team with the better record is favored.  The Bucs come into the game at 5-2 while the Cowboys are 4-3 yet it is the Cowboys who are favored in pro football betting odds.  After what happened to Dallas last week though, many gamblers will be a bit leery of laying points with the Cowboys in football betting.  There is no question that Dallas has a lot of talent but they have chemistry problems, a head coach that should be fired in Wade Phillips, and serious defensive problems according to football betting experts.  On the other side the Bucs look solid on both sides of the ball according to football betting experts.  Quarterback Jeff Garcia continues to win, the running game looks solid and the defense is always good in Tampa according pro football betting stats.  There are a lot of reasons to like Tampa in this football betting matchup.
