Cowboys vs. Bengals Preseason Betting Odds: Dallas Defense Still a Question Mark

Betting Odds: Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys (-3)

  • Cincinnati Bengals Moneyline: +148
  • Dallas Cowboys Moneyline: -170
  • Over/Under: 41.5
  • Kickoff: Aug. 18, 2018 — 7 p.m. ET

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals’ longtime two-back committee featuring Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard has seemingly been replaced by the one-man Joe Mixon show. Bernard won’t be a complete afterthought thanks to his strong receiving ability, but Mixon has the makings of a fantasy-friendly workhorse.

It’d be in the Bengals’ best interest to find a way to keep Mixon on the field as much as possible, as his unique ability out of the backfield makes him a matchup nightmare.

Dallas Cowboys

The starting defense features plenty of early-round picks at defensive end, linebacker and cornerback. Still, who knows whether the unit can survive for any length of time without its real MVP, Sean Lee.

Since 2015, the Cowboys have gone 1-9 while allowing 27.3 points and 382 total yards per game when Lee has sat out or played fewer than 15 total snaps. By contrast, they’ve gone 25-13 while allowing 19.5 points and 325 total yards per game with their stud linebacker healthy. The under has received just 23% of public tickets but 72% of the money.
