2008 Season NFL Football Past Picks

San Francisco at Dallas
Sunday 11/23 01:00 PM Eastern
3 units on San Francisco +10 (-115) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Tony Romo is back and so are the Cowboys. Or so the story goes. When Romo went down, Dallas lost two of three, scoring 14 ppg in the process. Upon his return they won. But, the Cowboys continued to struggle offensively, scoring 14 again. The fact remains that after their 5-1 start in which they averaged 29.4 ppg, the Cowboys have averaged just 15.8 per game while allowing 23.6. It's not yet clear to me that Dallas is out of the woods, even with Romo back. Without Felix Jones who is done for the season, and with TO completely stalled, this Dallas offense has looked more mediocre than great. The Boys are just 3-3 SU and 1-5 ATS in their last six home games. San Francisco's offense has produced more points per game on the season than Dallas. They should be able to score against this Cowboys defense - at least enough to keep this game close. This is just too many points to lay for a team with this many question marks.
