Bet on the NFLIt has been a rough season so far for the Dallas Cowboys, who went into 2010 hoping to be the first team to play the Super Bowl at home.
Football betting notes: They are currently 1-4, taking their only win on the road vs the Texans in Week 3. The Giants on the other hand are 3-2, in their final game before bye week. The Cowboys have brought in referees to practice to address their penalty problems. They have a record so far this year of 23 flags in the last two games, averaging 10 penalties per game.
Coach Wade Phillips says, “We realize penalties are hurting us and we’re trying to do everything we can. Part of it was putting the officials out there and giving them specific things to look at on offense, defense and special teams.
We make the team run the play again. No matter what happened on the play, we run the play again. It’s a time thing. You’re going to be out there so long, but if you get a penalty, you’re going to be out there longer.”
The Giants are currently running on a 3 game winning streak, which puts them in first place in their division. They have the best defense in the NFC and aren’t going to make it easy for the struggling Cowboys to get back on track. Dallas features the third best offense and fourth best defense in the league based on yardage, but it’s those aforementioned penalties that are killing them.
These long time rivals will go head to head in some seriously epic Monday Night Football action. Sportsbook odds list the Cowboys as the home favorites at -3 with the total over under at 44.5.
