Cowboys Bengals Betting – How Will The Offenses Look In Canton

NFL Preseason Betting PredictionsWhile college football betting players don’t have to worry about preseason games, NFL football betting players can warm up their skills beginning on August 8th at Fawcett Stadium with the Hall of Fame Game, which features Dallas and Cincinnati this season.  Here’s a look at how the two offenses will stack up, even though we won’t see the first-string guys for that long.

Cowboys Bengals Betting – August 8th, 8:00 PM ET

The news around the Dallas offense surrounds receiver Dez Bryant, the talented but apparently troubled wideout that the Cowboys took with the 24th pick in the draft.  Bryant was suspended for virtually all of the 2009 season at Oklahoma State for lying to the NCAA about his meetings with Deion Sanders, and while there’s a current story going around that Bryant won’t carry pads for veterans, a rookie tradition, Bryant seems to be a good kid who only wants to play football.  He’s already signed, which is something that many thought wouldn’t happen, and he’s a great addition to a group of targets for Tony Romo that includes last year’s breakout star, Miles Austin, tight end Jason Witten and Roy Williams.  The three-headed monster of Felix Jones, Marion Barber and Tashard Choice coming out of the backfield will have heads spinning.

The biggest thing to watch in this game will be the depth of the offensive line, who lost Marc Colombo for most of last year.  And of course, Bryant.

The Bengals picked up their own Bryant at wideout, Antonio Bryant, who has been in Tampa Bay.  That means that teams can no longer double-team Chad Ochocinco, and that’s good for quarterback Carson Palmer.  However, the thing to watch in this game for those who want to bet on the Bengals this season is how they work the tight end into the offense, specifically, rookie Jermaine Gresham.  Reggie Kelly is currently on top of the depth chart there, but the Bengals have never really used the tight end a lot, and they have a monster in Gresham, even though he missed all of 2010 with a knee injury.  He was just too good to pass up on, and if the Bengals can figure out how to use him, that would open up the aerial attack, as well as take some pressure off of running back Cedric Benson.

NFL betting odds for this game aren’t that important, and they’re not even out yet as linesmakers try to figure out who is on the roster, and who isn’t.  A story came out that Palmer has been impressed with Terrell Owens, a former Cowboy, so you can’t rule out seeing Owens in this game on August 8th.  We think Cincinnati wins the sports betting pick for this game, but Dallas’ offense is slightly better with the depth at running back.
