Sports gambling fans have seen Dallas and Philadelphia emerge in a neck and neck online sports gambling race for the NFC East Division title with one month to go. The Cowboys have been notorious for their December collapses including an epic sports gambling free fall in 2008 in which they blew what looked like a certain online sports gambling playoff spot.
Dallas got off to another poor sports betting start for this December with a 24-31 loss at New York to the Giants as they failed to cover the sports gambling line as 1-point favorites. It was the third time in four games that Dallas failed to cover the sports gambling line.
For trend sports gambling handicappers the loss at the Giants did beg the question which was, “Why will this season be any different than the previous ones under Phillips?” Phillips also did himself no favors when he whined earlier in the week about not yet getting a contract extension and the lack of respect that he gets.
Losing at the Giants after complaining like that is not going to win him any favors with owner Jerry Jones or love from the sports gambling public.
Dallas has a tough stretch of sports gambling matchups down the stretch with a home game against the AFC West Division leading San Diego Chargers followed by back-to-back road games at the undefeated New Orleans Saints and then at the arch-rival Washington Redskins.
That will be followed up by the regular season sports gambling finale at home against the Philadelphia Eagles with a post season berth likely on the line. Dallas is yet to do anything to inspire confidence down the stretch.
Phillips coaching and the maturity of quarterback Tony Romo remain in high debate and the pass defense has been leaky. While the Cowboys always have a lot of public money flowing their way the smart money might again be on the other side.
