Bet on the NFLNFL football odds are set for a huge opening weekend football betting test as the Dallas Cowboys face the new look Tampa Bay Buccaneers. NFL football odds opened with Dallas as a 5.5 point football betting favorite with an over/under total of 39.  This is a dangerous spot for Big D, however!

The Dallas Cowboys will be facing a Tampa Bay team that will be going all out against the NFL football odds for their new head coach Raheem Morris, who takes over for Jon Gruden. Morris has made his share of football betting headlines during the preseason as he fired offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski after a lackluster online betting preseason in which the Bucs never really got ignited.  Tampa Bay finished only 22nd against the preseason NFL football odds for scoring.

Byron Leftwich is expected to be the new starting quarterback against the NFL football odds after a mediocre preseason performance in which he compiled a 72.2 quarterback rating.  The Tampa Bay defense is also a point of concern against the NFL football odds as it finished preseason ranked just 24th overall.  Tampa Bay finished the exhibition campaign 1-3 both straight up and against the NFL football odds and while preseason games don’t count the way the Bucs played was not impressive.  That being said, if there is one game that they will be focused and ready for its their home opener against “America’s Team!”

The Dallas Cowboys may be in danger of looking ahead to their week 2 regular season home opener against the New York Giants at new Cowboys Stadium.  The Cowboys have been a poor value against the NFL football odds since Bill Parcels left the scene and have gotten the cash in just 7 out of their last 21 games.  Dallas has beaten the NFL football odds in just 1 out of their last 6 games on the road.  On the positive, Dallas has beaten Tampa Bay straight up in 9 out of the last 12 head to head meetings and has gotten the cash in 5 out of their last 7 matchups against the Bucs.
