Betting on the Dallas Cowboys

America’s team has always been one of the most polarizing franchises in the NFL. Polarizing teams typically see a lot of action at the betting window.

Dallas Cowboys Franchise History

In the ‘70s, shortly after the Super Bowl era began, Tom Landry established Dallas as one of the NFL’s premiere teams. Behind Landry, the Cowboys appeared in five Super Bowls, winning two.

Hall of Famer Roger Staubach was Landry’s quarterback for both Super Bowl victories. After its 1978 Super Bowl title, Dallas took a hiatus from winning championships until the early ‘90s.

During this era, the Cowboys cemented themselves as one of the NFL’s most dominant dynasties. The quartet of Jimmy Johnson, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin claimed back-to-back titles in ’93 and ’94.

Barry Switzer took over coaching duties and rode the same trio of stars to a Super Bowl in ’96, the franchise’s third in four years

Since the ‘90s’ dynasty, the Cowboys have suffered from a severe case of mediocrity under an intense microscope. Critics of Dallas’ owner, Jerry Jones, point to his uniquely outspoken nature as the main reason the Cowboys operate under constant media scrutiny.

Betting on the Dallas Cowboys in Texas

Sports betting is currently illegal in Texas.

The Texas sports betting market would likely become one of the country’s biggest markets immediately after launch, in similar fashion to New York.

With a massive population and abundance of sports teams, the Lone Star State set up to haul in eye-popping revenue numbers if and when it legalizes online sports betting.

A few gaming operators have struck deals with Texas sports teams in hopes that legal wagering is one day a reality.

While Texas’ next legislative session doesn't begin until 2023, supporters are not laying low. Cara Gustafson, spokesperson for the Sports Betting Alliance, plans to use 2022 to have conversations with lawmakers who oppose legalization.

Gustafson, along with plenty of Texas big-wigs, believe 2023 will be the year when legal sports betting comes to fruition.

Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, even stated to the Dallas Morning News that “the handwriting’s on the wall.”

If legal sports betting does make its way to Texas, bettors can expect to see something like this at the betting window:

·        Cowboys -7.5

·        Giants +7.5

In this example, the Cowboys are favored over their division rival, the New York Giants, by 7.5 points. A Cowboys bettor needs at least an 8-point victory from Dallas.

If the Cowboys win by fewer than 8, or lose, the Giants cover the spread and Cowboys’ spread bets settle as losses.
