St. Louis Rams

One of the most bet on games heading into Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys vs. St. Louis Rams betting odds opened at Dallas -9 and that line has since settled in at -7 just about everywhere.

The away team has performed well in this series dating back to 1987, going 7-3, but Dallas and St. Louis have pretty much split wins over the last 4 games of this decade. In fact, aside from last season's game, the Rams have played Dallas pretty close. Only two of the games in this series over the last 10 won by Dallas were by a score of 6 points or more. Last season was the only true blow out win.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo threw three touchdown passes and Patrick Crayton had seven receptions for 184 yards and two touchdowns as the host Cowboys pounded St. Louis, 35-7, in Week 4 last year.

Many times a team the likes of St. Louis will play very poorly immediately following a straight up win. The Rams are an exception, however. They 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. win.

The Cowboys will turn to quarterback Brad Johnson in the wake of Tony Romo's broken finger. Johnson, 40, has a Super Bowl ring to his credit but has not thrown a meaningful pass since he started 14 games for the Vikings in 2006. Johnson is 4-0 in his career against St. Louis and has an added weapon in newly acquired receiver Roy Williams.

Veteran Torry Holt has struggled this season and is on pace to post the lowest totals of his remarkable career. Avery, the Rams' second-round pick, has started to take a more prominent role with the team. He had four receptions for 74 yards last week, including a nifty one-handed 43-yard grab to put St. Louis in position to win.

Gambling911.com won't recommend a bet on St. Louis but we will say "avoid Dallas" considering the trends and history stats we provided.

85 percent of the betting action was going Dallas' way.
