Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings betting odds at Sportsbook.com were Minnesota -1.5, Total: 44.5

In what is being dubbed “The Desperation Bowl” two preseason Super Bowl favorites meet with identical 1-3 records. Dallas is coming off a mistake-riddled performance in a loss at home against Tennessee, where it committed three turnovers along with 12 penalties. The Vikings also had three turnovers in their 29-20 loss to the Jets on Monday night. This contest also marks a rematch of last year’s playoff game when Minnesota ended the Cowboys season with a 34-3 thrashing behind 234 yards and four touchdown passes from Brett Favre.

Currently 63% of the NFL betting fans at Sportsbook.com are backing the Vikings.

Tony Romo will not have a lot of time to throw the football with the excellent D-Line of Minnesota. But if he does find time to throw, he could be successful against a Vikings defense missing their best cornerback Cedric Griffin, who suffered a season-ending knee injury against the Jets. The Cowboys running game finally got going last week with Felix Jones rushing for 109 yards on just 15 carries. Dallas coach Wade Phillips said that Jones will start getting many more touches in the upcoming weeks.

Favre has ten turnovers in four games this year, throwing seven picks and losing three fumbles. But the Vikings offense can build upon their second-half uprising against the Jets when Favre threw three touchdowns, including one to newly-acquired Randy Moss. The future Hall-of-Famer has loved facing the Dallas secondary with 11 TD and more than 100 receiving YPG in his seven career games against the Cowboys.

For the football betting crowd, here are a few trends to consider before placing your wagers.

Minnesota is 6-1 (SU & ATS) in its past seven meetings against Dallas.

DALLAS is 4-14 ATS (-11.4 Units) in road games vs. good passing defenses - allowing 5.7 or less passing yards/att. since 1992. The average score was DALLAS 10.5, OPPONENT 20.4 - (Rating = 1*).

For those looking to wager on the over-under, these two trends point towards a low scoring game.

DALLAS is 17-2 UNDER (+14.8 Units) in road games vs. good passing defenses - allowing 5.7 or less passing yards/att. since 1992. The average score was DALLAS 10.5, OPPONENT 20.4 - (Rating = 4*).

Play Under - Road teams against the total (DALLAS) - with a poor defense - allowing 5.4 or more yards/play, after gaining 375 or more total yards in 2 consecutive games. (35-8 over the last 5 seasons.) (81.4%, +26.2 units. Rating = 4*).
