Sunday Night Football Betting at BetAnySports – Cowboys Look To “Man Up” For Revenge Against Saints

Sunday Night Football Betting at BetAnySports - Cowboys Look To "Man Up" For Revenge Against Saints
The Dallas Cowboys certainly got an emotional lift after one of the best comebacks in franchise history last week, and they are going to need all the confidence they can get as they line up against a team that gave them the beating of a lifetime last season. The New Orleans Saints come to town, off their first win of the season and operating at a very high level of offensive efficiency once again. Sunday night football betting action at BetAnySports will begin at 8:30 PM ET at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, televised live on NBC.

The Cowboys suffered through some early mistakes, including an interception by Tony Romo that was returned for a touchdown, as they went down 21-0 to the St. Louis Rams. But they didn’t quit, coming all the way back to snare a 34-31 victory. This is a team that is attacking opponents a little bit differently than in the recent past, as they know they can extract some advantages on the ground. DeMarco Murray has been sensational, averaging over five yards per carry and almost 130 yards per game. Romo has completed 67% of his passes, although his ratio of four touchdowns to four interceptions leaves a little something to be desired.

New Orleans really felt snake-bitten after the first two games of the year, where they lost on the last play of the game each time. Those defeats extended their road losing streak to five games. As they returned home to the Superdome, they got the ship going in the right direction, taking advantage of the absence of Adrian Peterson, as well as the indoctrination of rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, to beat the Minnesota Vikings 20-9.

It is a good thing that Dallas has some confidence, because they are looking for payback in a big way. And they are getting points at home. In the Sunday night football betting odds that have been established on this game at BetAnySports, you can take a field-goal with the home team:

Cowboy fans probably don’t even want to remember last year’s meeting between these two teams. The final score was 49-17 in favor of the Saints, but the stat line indicated that it was even worse than that for Dallas, which compiled only nine first downs and 193 total yards in the contest, operating against a defense designed by Rob Ryan, who they had fired as their coordinator during the off-season. Meanwhile, the Saints set an NFL record with 40 first downs, and hit the franchise record with 625 total yards. It was embarrassing.

BetAnySports customers recognize that there are a couple of missing pieces for the Saints’ offense. One is Darren Sproles, who moved on to the Philadelphia Eagles, but is missed because of his dual talents out of the backfield. Also, former Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, the team leader with 143 rushing yards, is out of this game with a thumb injury. Certainly football bettors know that Drew Brees can carry a team on his back through long stretches, as long as he has the help of people like tight end Jimmy Graham, who already has 254 receiving yards, and the impressive rookie Brandin Cooks, who has pulled in eighteen passes.

Over the first three games, BetAnySports patrons have noticed that neither of these defenses has been able to get off the field that easily. Dallas has allowed its opponents to convert on almost 49% of third downs, while the Saints have surrendered 45% in that category. We certainly know that Dallas went through some heavy losses in terms of injuries and player departures on the stop unit, and perhaps their approach in trying to keep the New Orleans offense off the field is to control the football on the ground. This may come as a big surprise to many football bettors, but Dallas actually has more rushing plays (95) than passes (89). Of course, when you have someone like Murray (385 yards) in the backfield, you might be able to get away with that. Take note that the Saints have covered just one of their last seven as a road favorite, so they are a little more ordinary when you get them away from the French Quarter.
