3 units on Game Total UNDER 38 -105 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Mike Singletary has made one thing clear: he expects his teams to play hard and to play to win. Thus far they have delivered two wins, each by a single point. Look for them to kick it up a notch here in week three and play strong on defense, where the intensity shows up the most. Singletary is likely to remind his team of the 35 points Dallas hung on them a year ago, and I expect a fairly physical game here. This total is set rather high, anticipating the Dallas offense behind Tony Romo to score at will. Yes, this Cowboys offense is good - in the regular season. The truth is, over the last eight years, the Cowboys have never put up more than 23 points in a preseason game and their opponents have averaged just 15.6 ppg. The average points scored in Dallas games in week three have been 34.5 ppg. And, these clubs hooked up in a game three a few years ago and put up just 24 total points. This number is too high, and I'm going with the UNDER.
