One tweet has the line moving.
The Dolphins opened as a one-point underdog against the Cowboys this week, but the hype surrounding Tony Romo has the line moving in other direction according to OddsShark.com.
Though the Cowboys have been losers of seven straight games, Dallas hasn’t been getting blown out. They’ve just been terrible in the fourth quarter, and their -30 scoring margin in the final period is the worst in the NFL. That could change with the return of Romo, who has been one of the NFL’s best in the final minutes in the past few years.
In the past, the Cowboys have owned this matchup. They’ve won four of the last five meetings between these teams, including two Thanksgiving games.
Miami could be the perfect return game for Romo and the Cowboys. The Dolphins have struggled against the pass in the last three weeks, but will be getting Brent Grimes back to the lineup after Grimes sat out last week’s game with food poisoning.
If the line is too close, the over might be your best bet. 46.5 is the total for Sunday’s game, a number impossible to reach with Matt Cassel as quarterback. The total has gone under in four of the Cowboys last six games, but those days are over. Dallas gets back on track, starting with a road win Sunday.
The OddsShark computer is predicting a 25.4 – 25.8 Dolphins victory.
