Week 3 NFL Preview

NFL: ODDSMAKERS EXPECT A SUNDAY SHOOTOUT

Oddsmakers expect the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers to put up a lot of points in primetime on Sunday night.

Sportsbook.com oddsmakers believe these two teams are likely to put up between 50 and 56 points and your wager on the Total Points Scored by Both Teams could be doubled thanks to our Primetime Props promotion.

The 50-56 combined points total is the favorite at 5:2 odds and if you bet that the Cowboys and Packers will combine for between 50 and 56 points and it hits, we’re going to double your winnings.

These two teams have definitely shown the ability to put up points through the first two weeks of the season.  Thanks to last week’s 24-point fourth quarter, the Green Bay Packers are third in the NFL with 72 points scored while Dallas is fourth with 69 points.

With a combined average of 70.5 points per game, these teams have shown no shortage of offense and there will likely be plenty of fireworks in this game as well. The amount of points that can be scored by either side makes it intriguing that bettors are pounding the Cowboys as three-point favorites at the famed Lambeau Field.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has proven more than capable of guiding the Packers offense and getting the ball into the hands of his talented wide receivers. Rodgers has 506 passing yards and four touchdown passes in his first two NFL starts.

Meanwhile, third-year receiver Greg Jennings leads the league with 258 receiving yards with Donald Driver adding 90 yards and a touchdown reception.

 The Green Bay offense is chugging along just fine without Brett Favre. The only concern is at running back where starter Ryan Grant is dealing with a hamstring injury and had just 20 rushing yards against a Detroit defense that gave up 317 yards on the ground in Week 1.

That leaves Brandon Jackson, 61 yards on seven attempts last weekend, to shoulder the load and while he looked good last week, he failed to win the starting job last year when given the chance.

Everyone knows that Dallas quarterback Tony Romo and receiver Terrell Owens will combine to put points on the board. And if he’s not throwing to T.O., Romo can look to receiver Patrick Crayton, tight end Jason Witten or hand the ball off to Marion Barber and Felix Jones.

Jones, a first-round pick out of Arkansas, showed the league how explosive he can be in his first two games. The rookie running back scored an 11-yard touchdown run in his first NFL game and had a 98 yard kickoff return for a touchdown last Monday night.

Jones consistently put the Cowboys in solid field position with his kickoff returns and will be an irreplaceable asset if he continues to provide Romo and Co. with a short field.

The major concern could be how the defenses respond to the challenge this week. Dallas’ ‘D’ looked shaky in the first half last week as they gave up 30 points. They played much better in the second half and limited the Eagles to just seven.

Green Bay’s defense has looked vulnerable thus far, giving up 333 yards of offense per game. They gave up 414 yards and 37 points to Dallas last season so they’ll need to be much better this time around.
