NFL Preseason Betting Preview
Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos
Saturday, 9:00 pm Eastern
SBG Global Opening Line: Broncos PK , Total 37
The Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos will each look for their first win of the preseason as they meet on Saturday night in Denver. The Cowboys started well last week against the Chargers but the backups did not play well and Dallas lost 31-17. Starting quarterback Tony Romo was 3-3 in his short time. Backup quarterback Brad Johnson was 8-15 but threw an interception that led to a San Diego touchdown. Dallas did get good play out of rookie running backs Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Cowboys at Home.
The Broncos first string offense looked good last week in their game against
Houston but Denver ultimately lost 19-16. Quarterback Jay Cutler was 8 for 10 and also rushed for a TD. “I am very pleased with Jay as well as the offense,” Denver head coach Mike Shanahan said. “That was pretty good to get a drive like that especially after not doing anything on your first series.”
Backup quarterback Patrick Ramsey did not play well, throwing two interceptions. The Broncos did rush for 123 yards on the ground with Andre Hall leading the way with 43 yards.
Dallas and Denver have been training together this week so both teams should be familiar with each other on Saturday night. “They have a different type of offense and a different type of defense,” Head Coach Mike Shanahan said. “We get a chance to work against a 3-4 look, and they get a chance to take a look at a four-man front.” Denver quarterback Jay Cutler was definitely interested in seeing how well his young team stacks up against the Cowboys. “We have a young team with a lot of new guys,” Cutler said. “Dallas is one of the top three teams in the NFL. It gives us a good measuring stick to see where we are at and exactly how far we need to go.”

Dallas head coach Wade Phillips likes the opportunity to work with the Broncos in practice. “It was a good opportunity for our team to come and work with the Broncos and we all know that they are a class organization,” he said. “A lot of clubs have workouts together and it is big fight all the time and neither team gets a whole lot out of it. I think Mike does a great job getting his team to do the right things. We had a brisk workout. I thought both teams got a lot out of it — I know we did.”
NFL betting stats show that the Cowboys and Broncos have met a total of 12 times in preseason play with each team winning six games. Last year the Cowboys defeated the Broncos 31-20 in preseason action.
