NFL betting expectations remain high for the 1-2 Dallas Cowboys as they are coming off a bye that followed an impressive football betting win at Houston.
The Dallas Cowboys opened at Sports-Gambling as a 3 point home favorite against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with a kickoff scheduled for 4:20 PM and a telecast by CBS.
The Tennessee Titans are coming off a 26-20 home loss to the Denver Broncos as 6 point favorites as their record fell to 2-2 both straight up and with the NFL odds. The weakness of the Titans is, ironically enough, their passing attack that ranks 29th in the NFL and has caused their overall offensive output to rank 27th.
Vince Young was the hero of last season when he took over the starting QB job after Tennessee started off 0-5 and he rallied to salvage an 8-8 record although much of the work was done by record setting running back Chris Johnson and his 2000+ yard season.\
Head coach Jeff Fisher has never fully trusted Young or been impressed with his work ethic and has already pulled him from a game this year. Johnson has 354 yards rushing so far and the defense has been solid with a ranking of 9th in the NFL.
The Dallas Cowboys have a record of 1-2 both straight up and with the football odds and were highly impressive in their 27-13 win at Houston two weeks ago. The win served to cool off the seat of head coach Wade Phillips and owner Jerry Jones, who were both under fire for the 0-2 start and lackluster offense.
Dallas ranks 5th in the NFL for total yards but just 20th for points scored as their 26th ranked rushing attack has prevented them from closing out drives. The Phillips led defense ranks 8th in the NFL.
The Cowboys will be catching the Titans at a good time as they have had two weeks to prepare and work out the kinks of their offense. Tennessee and Young will be feeling pressure as a loss will put them under the .500 mark and into a hole for the playoff race. But if Dallas gets careless a NFL betting upset by the Titans would not be a surprise.
