Dallas + 6.5 to 7 at Jerry World for all the marbles
The NFC East Title on the line. Tony Romo out, John Kitna called up from nowhere to fill in as a backup, Kyle Orton to lead the Cowboys on Sunday Night at Jerry World in a marquee game. Dallas has seen this movie before, ….win and you’re in! For those of you living under a rock, it has not worked out well for the Cowboys or their backers. Perhaps with Romo being out, Dallas is more attractive? I say yes. This will force Dallas to run it more, and at days end Bill Callahan and Jason Garret cannot screw up that game plan! Philly can score no doubt, but I expect the best defensive effort of the season by Dallas here. Not sure this one is not a nail biter on Sunday night, Week 17 in a must win never come easy in any scenario. You always look at every angle on the planet to take home dogs in the NFL, and if you lay points on the road over 4 or 5 points, there is eminent doom that awaits you in most cases.
Philly has been on fire and scoring points with ease and blowing people out. Their performance against Chicago was the best of the season and they in fact have surprised many with Foles at QB and Chip Kelly’s high octane attack has gained traction. The whole world loves Philly here without Romo in the game, but we are betting into numbers and not games here in the NFL. The sooner you realize that the better.
At days end, I like Dallas to cover the number here and think they will find success running the ball and using short play action passes to the tight end and Dez Bryant should find some room here. That said Philly will trade punches as well. I expect a 3-4 point game here in a hard fought battle for the division title, the value lies in taking points here.
Dallas plus the number. I have a premium play on the TOTALS PLAY in this game Sunday, be sure and check it out!
