NFL Betting – Cowboys vs. Cardinals In NFC Christmas Clash

Jon Kitna is hoping to stop the Arizona Cardinals on Christmas night Online NBA betting players will have a full day on Christmas with five games, but NFL betting players can sneak some action in when Dallas heads to Arizona for a Christmas night special. Neither of these teams are making the playoffs, so they’re playing for pride and, probably, some jobs in 2011.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals Betting – Saturday, 7:30 PM ET

The Cowboys (5-9) lost a 16-point lead late in the game, than needed a field goal with 50 seconds left to beat Washington 33-30 at home. Jon Kitna was 25-of-37 for 305 yards, two scores and no picks, and the Cowboys also ran for 134 yards. Defensively, the Cowboys still have some things to work on, such as their discipline as they gave the Redskins three first downs because of penalties, and they almost made Rex Grossman look like Joe Montana in the fourth quarter. They managed five sacks, but the Dallas secondary is something that has to be addressed in the offseason, whether it’s by Jason Garrett, or whoever will be in charge in Dallas.

The Cardinals (4-10) fell short in a comeback bid in a 19-12 loss at Carolina, and their offense could barely get anything going. John Skelton was 17-of-33 for 196 yards and a pick, and the Cardinals managed a paltry 43 yards on the ground. If there is a positive that the Arizona offense can take from this game, it’s that Larry Fitzgerald had nine catches for 125 yards, his second 100-yard game of the season. Defensively, the Cardinals couldn’t get off the field as they allowed 177 yards on the ground, which allowed Carolina to hold the ball for almost 37 minutes.

Your NFL betting odds favor the Cowboys as a 6.5-point favorite on the road, and they’re 1-4 SU in their last five trips to the desert, but they’re 3-2 ATS. The Cowboys are 3-3 ATS on the road, and they’re 1-6 as a favorite, while the Cardinals are 2-5 ATS at home, and they’re 3-7 as an underdog. You have to take the team that is playing better, and that is Dallas, who look like a different squad under Garrett.

The Cardinals may be playing for Ken Whisenhunt’s job, and they’re also trying to persuade Fitzgerald to stay in Arizona, and Fitzgerald can actually have a decent game against the Dallas secondary if Skelton can get him the ball, but he’ll be rushed. Offensively, the Cowboys should be able to take advantage of the Cardinals on the ground and through the air, and Arizona won’t be feeling any Christmas cheer by the end of the night. Look for Dallas to roll to a big betting win.
