NFL Betting Key Dallas Defenders

NFL betting this year on the Dallas Cowboys will be dependent upon the defense as the offense is, at best, an average NFL gambling commodity.

NFL betting fans last year saw the Cowboys go over the NFL gambling total in 9 out of their 16 games.  Dallas may trend more under this year if the defense tightens up.  Any discussion of the Dallas Cowboys defense would begin with outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who is one of the best in all of NFL betting at his position.

Ware had 84 tackles last NFL gambling season including 69 solos.  More important, Ware had 20 sacks for the 2008 NFL betting season which was the best in the NFL.  Dallas, in fact, was the number one team for sacks in all of NFL betting.  Bradie James is another key NFL betting asset on the Dallas defense.

James led the Cowboys in tackles last NFL betting season with 116 including 80 solos.  The inside linebacker from LSU also had 8 sacks for the year.  It was James third consecutive NFL betting season in which he had at least 100 tackles.  James forced 3 fumbles last year to lead the team.

Safety Ken Hamlin is one of the more physical defensive backs in all of NFL betting.  Hamlin was third in tackles for Dallas last season with 74 and he added an interception for good measure.  He is a 7 year pro out of Arkansas.

Terence Newman led the Cowboys with interceptions last year as he had 4, which was half of the Dallas total which was a meager 8.  The Cowboys were the 3rd worst team for turnover ratio in 2008 and must get significantly better production from the rest of the defensive backfield if they are to take their defense to the next level.

Newman is a 7 year pro from Kansas State.  Head coach Wade Phillips is known for his defensive expertise and he, along with defensive coordinator Brian Stewart, will be under intense heat this season to tighten up the unit as if the defense continues to play as bad as it did down the stretch last year heads will roll in Big D!
