12/17/2011 20:20 EDT,
Score: 31 - 15
Point Spread: -6½/-110 Dallas
Today's winner is Dallas over Tampa Bay. This is my Bailout Winner.
Dallas needs to get back on track after dropping their L2 by a combined 9 points. The Cowboys now sit on the perimeter of the playoff picture and will need this win as well as a win in New York in a few weeks. Dallas has won and covered the L3 over Tampa Bay. Before their L2 games, the 'Boys won 5 of 6 by an average of 16.8 PPG. This game is just what the doctor ordered for the Cowboys. The Bucs haven't won since mid-October. Josh Freeman's season of interceptions is worsening as he threw 2 more LW to bring his total up to 18 pics. Let's face it, his aching shoulder and his injured thumb is not getting enough time to heal. During their 7 game skid, the Buc's lost by an average of 32.1 PPG. They have been plagued by TO's with a -10 margin. Their best offensive effort in their L7 games was 26 points. Other than that, it's 19 or less. Dallas' "O" is one of the best in football in total yardage at 390.1 YPG, including 273.4 YPG in the air while Tampa is 31st in points allowed with 28.5 and 27th against the pass giving up 248.8 YPG in the air. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in their L4 meetings. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS their L5 meetings against the Bucs, and the Bucs are 6-20 ATS their L26 games played as a host. Take Dallas. Thank you.
