Betting Dallas Cowboys
The Boys are road dogs at the best online sportsbooks. The Dallas Cowboys have a lot of room for improvement after a disappointing 6-10 season. They had one of the worst defenses in the history of the franchise.
The Cowboys addressed defensive woes in the draft and free agency. They added Micah Parsons, a strong candidate for DPOY. The Cowboys brought in defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. This is an automatic upgrade from Mike Nolan. That should improve that side of the ball.
On offense, the Cowboys have running back Ezekiel Elliott and arguably the best trio of wide receivers: Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup. A lot is riding on Dak Prescott’s health and whether his shoulder can hold up for 17 games. The Cowboys look good on paper. They should be favored to win the NFC East.
According to the best NFL gambling sites, Dallas is 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games. The total has gone OVER in five of Dallas’ last seven games. Dallas is 7-1 SU in their last eight games against Tampa Bay. Dallas is 2-9 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

Betting Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are home faves at the best NFL gambling sites. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are fresh off their first championship since 2002. They return all 22 starters. The Bucs have a chance to repeat as
Super Bowl champions for the first time since the 2004 Patriots.
The Bucs have their QB and a handful of offensive tools in Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski. The Buccaneers finished 3rd in offensive points and 7th in yards. They should be able to build on those stats this season.
On defense, Ndamukong Suh will miss the start of the season. However, the Buccaneers have a trio of young bucks in Vita Vea, Antoine Winfield Jr. and Devin White. Jason Pierre-Paul had no less than seven sacks in each of his past five seasons.
