Raiders vs. Cowboys Preseason Pick
Will tonight's Raiders and Cowboys matchup be high-scoring at 8:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cowboys are 3-point home favorites versus the Raiders while the over/under currently sits at 43.5 points.
OAKLAND RAIDERS: The Raiders fell 20-10 to the Cardinals and 24-21 to the Rams in their first two preseason games to drop to 0-2 in exhibition play. Derek Carr was 7-for-9 passing for 100 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, while Connor Cook went 9-for-15 for 83 yards and a touchdown in relief.
DALLAS COWBOYS: The Cowboys ran their preseason record to 2-1 with a victory over the Colts last week. Starter Dak Prescott went 7-for-8 for 106 yards with one touchdown while Kellen Moore was 10-of-21 for 131 yards. Cooper Rush also added 92 yards passing and two touchdowns when he entered the game in the second half.
OUR PREDICTION: I think both of these teams have enough firepower to make it a high-scoring affair. Both Carr and Cook have moved the ball in preseason play and the Cowboys may have a sparkplug in the rookie Rush. I think no matter which signal-caller is in for either side, they'll have some success moving the football. Neither of these teams has played stellar defense yet.
