NFL Betting on Dallas Means Better Defense Needed

NFL betting on the Dallas Cowboys ended in disaster for 2008 with a fall that will long be remembered in NFL gambling circles as many gamblers were burned at the end.

NFL betting fans saw the Cowboys lose their final two regular season games in embarrassing fashion as Dallas’ defense simply couldn’t hold the fort at the end of the NFL gambling campaign. In their 15th game of the NFL betting season the Cowboys still controlled their own destiny for the NFL gambling post season as they hosted the Baltimore Ravens in the final home game ever at Texas Stadium.

Trailing 17-19 in the 4th quarter Dallas’ defense collapsed as Baltimore’s Willis McGahee ran 77 yards like a hot knife through butter for a touchdown.

Dallas rallied with a score of their own but again the defense was the cause of the NFL betting defeat as another Baltimore runner, Le’Ron McClain, ran 82 yards for a touchdown to ice the game.  The Ravens ended the NFL betting matchup with an astounding 265 yards as McClain had 139 total yards and McGahee had 108.

What made it even worse is that Dallas head coach Wade Phillips supposed NFL betting strength is his defensive “expertise”.  The problems continued for Dallas in what was a virtual NFL betting playoff game in their regular season finale at Philadelphia in which the winner would gain the playoffs.

The Eagles ran for 137 yards and blew out Dallas by a score of 44-6.  Dallas’ defense ranked only 9th in the NFC for points allowed was one of the worst teams in NFL betting against the run as they allowed 4.2 yards per carry for the entire season.

One NFL betting positive for the Cowboys was their pass rush, which was the best in the NFC as they totaled 59 sacks for the season.  Dallas lacks an explosive play making offense which means that their defense is going to have to pick up the slack and be much improved over last year’s version.

The Cowboys will not be able to contend for the playoffs unless the defense delivers!
