Cowboys and Buccaneers bring long under trend into Thursday's season opener
Sun, Sep 5th 9:47pm EDT
The over/under for Thursday night's season opener between these teams is 51.5 points, per BettingPros consensus odds. Those that support the under will likely point to Tampa Bay's ferocious defense that will look to attack Dallas's banged up offensive line. The Buccaneers finished the regular season ranked eighth in scoring defense at 22.2 PPG last year, but it is their Super Bowl performance where they held the high-powered Chiefs offense without a field goal that will resonate most. Over backers will likely be skeptical of this trend, given that Dak Prescott and Tom Brady were not the quarterbacks in any of the last five meetings between the teams.
