Two of the most traditional teams in all of the National Football League will get together on Sunday in the Big D. This mid afternoon game will take place in “Jerry’s World”, or otherwise known as AT+T Stadium in Arlington Texas. The Patriots are coming off a bye in Week 4, but have rolled through the first three games of the season. New England has wins over Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Jacksonville. In those three wins, the Patriots have scored 129 points, while allowing opponents to score 70.
The Patriots are in first place in the AFC East. For the Dallas Cowboys, after winning their first two games of the season, they have now dropped two in a row. The Cowboys are without both quarterback Tony Romo and their top receiver Dez Bryant. Backup running back Lance Dunbar is now out too after getting hurt last week. In their two losses in a row, the Cowboys have allowed 32.5 points per game.
Betting the Cowboys at Home would be a Huge Mistake
Wow – the Dallas Cowboys are at home, and we are NOT going to bet on them. No way, no how. There are a couple reasons why you don’t bet on the Dallas Cowboys. The first, and most important is – the New England Patriots are really, really good. Second, the Dallas Cowboys, are not. The Cowboys would cover this spread with Tony Romo and Dez Bryant playing in it, but with Brandon Weeden behind center, no way. The New England Patriots seem to be on a mission. A mission to win games, and win them big.
The Patriots have not called off the dogs in any of their games this season, despite having big leads. The Cowboys have done some jawing this week, especially from Greg Hardy. Earlier this week, Hardy made comments regarding Tom Brady, and his wife. Betting the Dallas Cowboys, even if they are getting 8.5 would be a huge mistake. Take the New England Patriots, as they are going to roll in front of the national TV crowd. The bet of the New England Patriots -8.5 is the way to go in this one.
This Game is Going to Go Over, Despite a Backup Quarterback
Brandon Weeden is not a quarterback met to play in an offensive shoot-out type of game. That’s why this game will not get to a shoot-out. There will be a bunch of points scored, but most of them will be on one side of the coin. It would be hard to imagine the Cowboys would get to 20 in this game, but a late touchdown should put them around 17.
For New England, it would be a shock if they scored anything less than 5 touchdowns in this game. That puts them at 35, with the chance for more to happen as well. Taking the over in this game seems like a great bet, especially since it’s Tom Brady and the offensive juggernaut New England Patriots.
Want Easy Money; Bet the Moneyline
Now, understand, this bet is going to have a little more risk than usual. But, in the end, what risk is there, betting on the best team in football to win. Bet the New England Patriots Moneyline. Why not? They are going to win! It’s free money. Whatever amount of money you want for this, but understand, you are going to have to pay a bunch to win a bunch.
The moneyline for this game is at -380, which is one of the largest around. You would have to bet $380 to win $100, but again, the Cowboys are not winning this game. A good wager would be the New England Patriots at -380 on Sunday.
