NFL Betting: Dallas Cowboys vs. Cleveland Browns

The 2008 NFL betting regular season begins on Sunday when the Cleveland Browns host America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys at Cleveland Browns Stadium.

Kickoff for this inter-conference football betting affair is scheduled for 4:15 ET. The Browns, who went winless throughout the pre-season, also put up a 0-4 record ATS in all four of its pre-season football betting contests. NFL odds declared Cleveland a three-point favorites vs. the Chicago Bears last Thursday, with the ‘total’ predicted to be 38.

Cleveland went up 10-0 in the first quarter and the Bears tied the game at the half. Chicago added two more Robbie Gould field goals to emerge victorious by a final score of 16-10. Touted by some NFL insiders as a potential contender to win the AFC North, the Browns must step up their game if they hope to have a chance at playing in the post-season.

The offense needs to work harder to convert more of its third down opportunities, but the real story is on the defensive side of the ball. The Browns defense is ranked last in the NFL in total points allowed and second to last in total yards allowed. Look for Dallas to try and exploit the Browns stop unit en route to achieving its first victory of the season.

Last week at Texas Stadium, Dallas came out on top of its NFL betting affair against Minnesota by three-points. After the Cowboys jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, Vikings running back Maurice Hicks scored on a one yard touchdown run less than a minute into the second quarter.

Both teams kicked field goals and then the Cowboys added another for the final score of the game. The 16-10 final score fell under the ‘total’ set by NFL odds, pleasing NFL bettors who predicted a low scoring game.

The Dallas Cowboys are currently a 5.5-point favorite over the Cleveland Browns in Sunday’s football betting affair, with the ‘total’ in the 48.5 to 49.5 range. Open an account at before Week 1 NFL action begins!
