Tennessee Titans vs. Dallas Cowboys

Carrie Stroup here for Gambling911.com with your Tennessee Titans vs. Dallas Cowboys betting odds and preview.

Despite a ten game win streak versus NFC opponents, Sportsbook.com has the Titans betting odds at +6.5 in Dallas on Sunday.

The Cowboys are coming of their bye week which is good news for Dallas fans. Dallas has won at least three straight games after its bye in each of the past three seasons.

Chris Johnson is the key to another Tennessee victory. He only has 354 rushing yards on 3.8 YPC this year, which is well off last year’s 2,000-yard pace. Johnson will not have an easy time against a quality Dallas defense, and also considering how bad the Titans passing offense is (152 YPG, third-worst in the NFL).

Despite the two losses, Tony Romo has had a quality season, leading the Cowboys to the fourth-best passing attack in the NFL (312 YPG). Romo has completed 69 percent of his passes, but only has four touchdowns (and two picks) in three games. The Dallas rushing attack has been weak, as its 80 rush YPG is only better than six other NFL teams. Team owner Jerry Jones said that RB Felix Jones (22 carries, 88 yards) will have a bigger role in the offense moving forward.

The Titans were crushed in their last meeting with Dallas (45-14 in 2006), but are 15-1 in their past 16 games against NFC teams since that game. If that wasn’t enough to justify football betting fans to back the Titans, listen to this:

Play Against - Home favorites (DALLAS) - excellent passing team (>=265 PY/game) against an average passing defense (185-230 PY/game), after gaining 7 or more passing yards/attempt last game. (31-9 over the last 5 seasons.) (77.5%, +21.1 units. Rating = 3*).

Despite both teams having top-10 defenses, allowing approximately 300 total YPG, the following NFL betting trend found at Sportsbook.com leans towards the ‘over’:

Play Over - Road teams where the total is between 35.5 and 42 points (TENNESSEE) - off 1 or more straight overs, with a good scoring defense - allowing 17 or less points/game. (34-8 over the last 5 seasons.) (81%, +25.2 units. Rating = 4*).
