Bet on the NFLThis Saturday, December 25th, in a very special NFL Christmas game, the Arizona Cardinals, who are at the bottom of the NFC West with a 4-10-0 record, will host the Dallas Cowboys, who have a 5-9-0 record so far this season landing them also at the bottom of their division, the NFC West, going into Week 17 of the 2010 NFL regular season. But it looks like the Cowboys will be sans a couple of players this Christmas. Safety Gerald Sensabaugh and rookie linebacker Sean Lee, both lost to concussions in Sunday's 33-30 win over the Washington Redskins, will undergo testing this week. The Cowboys have also been hoping that Romo would be back in play by this week. He injured his collarbone on the 25th of October, but as of Monday it is not looking optimistic for Saturday. But there is some positive Romo news released this week, as the 30-year-old quarterback has announced his engagement to 24-year-old Candice Crawford, former Miss Missouri. Ironically, this comes only weeks after his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Simpson announced her engagement.
Sportsbook lists the Cowboys as the minus 6.5 point home favorites this Christmas, with the total over under at 45 points.
The latest in Cardinals news, they are looking forward to their final home game of the 2010 NFL season. Last week the Cardinals used a rookie quarterback to end a seven-game losing streak. On Sunday they were beaten by a Carolina team that used a rookie quarterback to snap a seven-game losing streak. With Derek Anderson sidelined for the second straight week with a concussion, John Skelton suffered the same fate as Anderson and Max Hall. When betting on sports take note, each quarterback won their first start but have a combined record of 1-10 in their 11 other starts.
When betting on football note that the Cowboys have definitely improved under the guidance of coach Jason Garrett, this is obvious after last week’s win over the Redskins. But when betting on the Cowboys know that they are the weakest through the air with opponents averaging 25.6 yards per game, which lands them at 28th in the NFL.
