Dallas Cowboys NFL Week 3 Betting Lines

Dallas Cowboys NFL Betting Online

In blasting the Giants the opening week of the season and following it up with another sweat free handing of the Jets, the Dallas Cowboys look to be bonafide championship contenders entering their Week 3 road tilt against the winless Arizona Cardinals. Their +750 rate of return at the online sportsbook to win Super Bowl LVIII currently sits only behind the 49ers (+650), Chiefs (+700), and Eagles (+750). As such, it comes with very little surprise to see them getting a ton of love from the NFL betting market to remain one of likely only a few undefeated teams come the conclusion of Week 3 NFL betting.

Dallas Cowboys Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Arizona Cardinals from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Kickoff time is set for 4:25 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX. The lookahead betting line for this NFC tilt hit the board with the Cowboys laying 10.5-points with the total lined 42. There’s been early wagering action on both the side and total with the Cowboys set to run up against what figures to be the frontrunner for the No. 1 pick in next year’s NFL draft. The point spread is already up 2.5-points to -13 with the Cowboys entering the match with a league-best +30 point differential through two played games. Though Dallas has shined in the road chalk role under the current coaching staff in going 7-3 SU and ATS the last ten times, it’s struggled against the Cardinals in the recent rivalry evidenced by logging a lone win in the last seven meetings. The over only cashed three times under those same parameters on the road as favorites but with an average of 48.3 points scored. As such, total bettors felt the initial O/U was a bit short and has since bet it up to 43.5 likely due to the belief that at least one if not two defensive scores will be in the cards with Parsons and Co. set to square off against a Joshua Dobbs-led offense. That paired with Tony Pollard also likely to go off against a Cardinals defense that allowed Saquon Barkley to go off for over 90 scrimmage yards and a pair of touchdowns makes the low impost even more attractive.

Dallas Cowboys Week 2 Recap

A week removed from scoring two defensive/special teams touchdowns and holding the Giants to 171 yards of combined offense, Micah Parsons and the Dallas defense limited the Zach Wilson-led New York Jets to 215 yards of combined offense and sickening 1-of-10 showing on third down to cruise to the carefree 30-10 win and cover as 8-point favorites per the closing NFL odds. DC Dan Quinn’s stop unit racked up four more turnovers and registered three more sacks which finds them ranked out as the No. 1 defense in the league when going by DVOA entering the third week of the NFL betting season. The straw that stirs the drink, Parsons is the current +250 favorite to win the Defensive Player of the Year Award! Big D proved to be one of the few losses for the online sportsbook in Week 2, but the loss was negligible with the Cowboys only taking in 56 percent of the bets and 53 percent of the money. Total bettors also got crushed in this game with the 40 combined points just surpassing the closing 39-point impost. A whopping 82 percent of the money expected the teams to play to a low scorer! Offensively, Dallas racked up 382 yards of combined offense, 26 first downs, and completed half of their 18 third down tries. The only blemish was a 2-of-6 showing in the red zone, but the Jets defense is one of the best in the business on that side of the field. Dak Prescott’s passing yards prop was faded big time. It opened 242.5 but was bet all the way down to 221.5. Big D’s QB1 ended up throwing for 255 yards by way of completing 31 of 38 passes with CeeDee Lamb the main beneficiary after hauling in 11 of 13 targets for 143 scoreless yards. He smashed his receiving yards prop as well!

Few teams can match the rich history of the Dallas Cowboys. Especially when you consider that the Cowboys were born as a nuclear weapon. In 1960 the American Football League was formed by Dallas resident Lamar Hunt. Hunt founded the league and its franchise, the Dallas Texans because the NFL would not grant him an expansion team. However, once the AFL and the Texans were launched, the NFL expanded to Dallas. The Cowboys were created to destroy the AFL and the Texans.

From 1960 through 1965, the Cowboys never had a winning season. But starting in 1966, the Cowboys became the most successful franchise in the NFL. From 1966 through 1985, the Cowboys missed the NFL Playoffs just two times. Dallas won two Super Bowls in that span out of five appearances. President Tex Schramm, scout Gil Brandt, coach Tom Landry, and quarterbacks Don Meredith and Rodger Staubach were the key contributors to those Glory Years. So too was the Doomsday Defense the stuff of legends in those days.

But by 1989, the Cowboys ran out of steam and money. Jerry Jones bought the franchise and hired Jimmy Johnson as head coach. After going 1-15 in 1989, the Cowboys were Super Bowl champions in 1992 and 1993. After Johnson left in an ego struggle with Jones, caretaker coach Barry Switzer led Dallas to their last Super Bowl title in 1995.

Jerry Jones has made the Cowboys the most valuable franchise in sports. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame because of his dynamic business ability. But as much as Jones wants it, he still gets no credit for his football acumen nor deserves it. Dallas has never made a Super Bowl without a Jimmy Johnson-constructed team.
