Sports Betting Cowboys at Texans NFL Preseason Odds
Few athletes in sports betting have come from out of nowhere to have a bigger impact on a team and a league than Dallas QB Tony Romo. Undrafted out of tiny Eastern Illinois Romo earned a tryout spot with the Cowboys and somehow stuck as a third-string QB. He bided his time on the depth chart before getting chance to work this first time and the rest has been NFL history. Last season he threw for 4,483 yards and 26 TDs last season and led the team to an 11-5 record.
But after last season, Romo’s achievements might have been outdone by his own teammate, breakout receiver Miles Austin. This guy was lucky to even be on the open day roster but he paid out huge dividends in the half of a season that he started.
Undrafted out of Monmouth, Austin followed a similar trajectory to Romo’s catching 81 passes, 11 TDs and racking up 1,320 yards after being inserted into the starting lineup halfway through the NFL betting lines action last year. If he had started the entire season he would have been on pace to shatter almost every single season receiving record.
Fans will get a chance to see these two players try and pick up where they left off when they travel to Houston to take on the Texans in a betting NFL preseason battle for Texas.
Romo and Austin should see extended minutes, as the starters should play at least the first half in this final dress rehearsal for the regular season. Houston’s defense is average at best and the Cowboys should be able to put points on the board. However, the Texans have one of the most prolific offenses in the game and the ‘Boys defense will have their work cut out for them.
Texan QB Matt Schaub and WR Andre Johnson are the most dangerous duo in the NFL and the Cowboys must find a way to stop them if they hope to win this game.
Kickoff for this Saturday August 28th matchup is set for 8:05 Eastern Time and sbg global opened with the Texans as a 3-point favorite with an over/under total at 40.5.
The first team’s should battle it out but when the scrubs come in expect Houston to come out on top of the final score as home field advantage comes into play.
