NFL Betting Predictions: Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys


NFL Betting Predictions: Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys

This Sunday at 1pm Eastern, the Detroit Lions travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys. sportsbook currently have the Cowboys a -2 point favorite against the traveling Lions.

Last Monday night the Dallas Cowboys under gritty toughman QB Tony Romo playing with busted ribs did enough to pull out a victory over the tough Washington Redskins. Tony Romo threw 22 completions on 36 attempts for 255 yards and an INT. The worst thing about Romo’s performance was the 6 botched exchanges he had with his center. The Dallas running attack which I have bashed on in recent posts stepped it up a notch as Felix Jones had 14 carries for 115 yards.


The Cowboys defense were good in holding the Redskins to only 16 points on 298 yards. They allowed only 65 rushing yards ( really good against a Mike Shanahan team) however their weakness which is in the secondary allowed 250 yards ( not just any yards …. Rex Grossman yards).

The Detroit Lions offense last week took two quarters till their offense put points up against the Minnesota Vikings. QB Matthew Stafford played excellent throwing 32 completions on 46 attempts, for 378 yards , 2 TD’s 0 INT. The running game for the Lions was virtually non-existant , absolutely terrible. Two of the Lions receivers caught for more than 100 yards in the game against the Vikings , however both TD’s came by WR Calvin ” Megatron ” Johnson.

The Lions defense tightened up after halftime ( I dont know what coach Jim Schwartz did , but oh my word did it work! ) as they only gave up a field goal in the last half. The defense allowed 321 total yards in the whole game , 132 on the ground and 321 in the air. They got to Vikings QB Mcnabb 3 times, with Lions DT Suh getting a sack and has been a straight menace every game wreaking havoc on the line.

My Predictions: I am going to go out on a limb here and say the Lions do juuuust enough to win this one on the road. With Romo playing on pure guts , he is possibly one Lions DT Ndamukong Suh man handle away from being shaken up.

So get your wagers in at and remember:

” Its Only A Game Untill You Bet It ”
