The game of the week in the NFL this Sunday pits the Dallas Cowboys against the Cleveland Browns. Let’s take a look at the matchup, odds, trends and other information regarding this marquee game.
Dallas Cowboys (0-0) at Cleveland Browns (0-0)
Game Time: 4:15pm ET
Spread: Cowboys –6
CLEVELAND is 12-4 ATS (+7.6 Units) in all games over the last 2 seasons.
The Dallas Cowboys roll into the 2008 season with a stacked roster and high expectations, but can the get over the playoff hump? They haven’t faired well in the playoffs recently and it might be Super Bowl or bust for head coach Wade Phillips. The Cowboys have incredible talent on both sides of the ball and look like the class of the NFC.
The Cleveland Browns made incredible strides last year in winning a surprising 10 games, but there are question marks surrounding this team after a poor showing in preseason. Derek Anderson must prove that he wasn’t a one-year wonder and the upgrades Cleveland made on defense must gel.
As the game trends note, the Browns have been great ATS the last two seasons. They have a dangerous offense and with home field advantage, they should keep the game close. It’ll come down to whether or not their defense can stop Tony Romo and the explosive Dallas offense. As the over/under total suggests, this might be a high scoring game. We say the Brownies will keep it close, but eventually fall to the ‘Boys.
Cowboys 31, Browns 28
