Dallas Cowboys: The Second Most Bet on Team Week 2

Outside of the Minnesota Vikings, the Dallas Cowboys were getting more betting action than any other single team in the NFL.  The Cowboys were -4 favorites to beat Tampa Bay Sunday (this was the best line around found at SBG Global) Nearly 85 percent of the bets were coming in on Dallas.

The Cowboys were 14/1 (+1400) long shots to win the 2010 Super Bowl with a payout potential of $1400 for every $100 bet at SBG.  The oddsmakers had them pegged to win OVER 9 2009 regular season games at -130.

With big-name distractions like Terrell Owens and Adam "Pacman" Jones - even Jessica Simpson - out of the picture, the Cowboys start looking to recover from another disastrous end to a season as they visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

"Obviously the way I was before wasn't getting the job done to the extent to the goal you want to accomplish," quarterback Tony Romo said, referring to his failure to throw a touchdown pass in their pivotal season-ending game against the Baltimore Ravens. "So you just keep going and keep going and hopefully you are able to accomplish that one day. I can see improvement."

Owens' consistent demand for the ball - not to mention his penchant for being so outspoken - may have negatively affected Romo's play and that of the offense.

"Everything was just football 24-7," Romo said during training camp. "I think that's the way we want to work around here."

Hopefully the team's bad luck in terms of facility issues won't translate into losses on the field.  Much hoopla has surrounded the new video boards, with punters hitting them during the preseason.  Then there was the collapse of a practice facility tent during a severe thunderstorm that injured two personnel. 

Tampa's once vaunted defense no longer has 11-time Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Brooks and includes six new starters.

"New leaders have to emerge," veteran cornerback Ronde Barber said.

That defense will be tested right away as it tries to slow down a potent offense led by Romo, who last year joined Roger Staubach as the only Dallas quarterbacks to throw for 3,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in back-to-back seasons.

This is a game the Cowboys can win and the public is backing them heavily.
