The Dallas Cowboys are in desperate need for a win when they head to Tampa Bay to face the struggling Buccaneers on Saturday night from NFL pro football action.

The odds currently at Oddsmaker, the sportsbook with the best bonuses in the business, reveal the Dallas Cowboys favored by -7 points with a total of 47 points.

If you want to bet a money line on Dallas you will have to lay -310 odds.

A money line bet on Tampa Bay will return +255 into your betting account if the home team can produce the upset win.

On Thanksgiving night the Cowboys were looking good after defeating a Miami team and had a 7-4 record.

Since then they have dropped two straight games including blowing a 12 point lead late to divisional rival the New York Giants on Sunday night football.

The loss put the Cowboys and Giants in a two way tie atop the NFC east division at 7-6 with two games remaining.

The play of the Cowboys pass defense has come into question. They have allowed 263 yards or greater to three of their past four opponents.

This unit has coughed up leads and hasn’t been able to get stops in the fourth quarter.

The focus has usually been on the erratic play of Tony Romo.

You can’t blame the Dallas quarterback because has done his job the past four weeks by positioning the team when it mattered most late in fourth quarter drives.

Both teams have cost their supporters plenty of money. The Cowboys are just 1-6 ATS over their past seven games and the Buccaneers are 1-7 ATS over their past eight.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter play at 4-9 on the season. They have lost seven straight games.

After a 19 point home loss they traveled last week to inept Jacksonville and dropped a 41-14 decision as a -3 point road favorite.

They have been awful in run defense as five of their past seven opponents have rushed for 163 yards or better against the Tampa defense.

Quarterback Josh Freeman has been listed as probable for this game with a shoulder injury. He played last week but missed the Carolina game two weeks back.

Tampa Bay has not protected the football. They have 23 turnovers during this seven game losing streak.

The Buccaneers have given up 35 or more points to four of their past five opponents.

Dallas is struggling defending the pass and has a short week with travel.

Over the total looks appealing in this one so bet it at Oddsmaker where players get the best bonuses.

The game will kick off Saturday night at 8:20PM Eastern Time with NFL Network televising to a national cable audience.
