NFL betting fans are also giving the Dallas Cowboys a second look as they have won both of their NFL gambling matchups since Jason Garrett took over as head coach.
The Dallas Cowboys will host the New Orleans Saints on Thanksgiving Day with a telecast on FOX set to kickoff at 4:20 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with New Orleans as a 3 point favorite with an over/under of 50.
This will be the biggest test yet for Dallas since Garrett took over as the defending Super Bowl Champion Saints have hit their stride.
The Dallas Cowboys now stand with a record of 3-7 both straight up and with the NFL gambling odds as 8 of their games have gone over the total.
The Cowboys are coming off a 35-19 home payout over Detroit as they cleared the 30 point mark on offense for the second straight week as former offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is getting more out of the unit as head coach.
The Cowboys have gone over the total 7 consecutive weeks and rank 11th in the NFL for total offense while ranking 28th for points allowed on defense. Backup quarterback Jon Kitna has been on the money the past two weeks as starter Tony Romo continues to heal. Dez Bryant is proving to be a dangerous kick returner as a rookie.
The New Orleans Saints have a betting on NFL football record of 7-3 straight up and 5-5 against the spread with an even 5-5 split on over/unders. The Saints are riding a 3 game winning streak since their stunning home loss to Cleveland and scored a 34-19 home payout over Seattle last week.
In some respects the Saints have become a better team than last year’s Super Bowl edition as they rank 5th on offense and 4th on defense, a marked improvement over 2009. Drew Brees has passed for 2969 yards and has played better despite nagging injuries to running backs Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas, who are both questionable for this one.
The Saints must maintain momentum to keep within striking distance of Atlanta in the NFC South as well as the have a shot at home field for the NFL betting playoffs.
