NFL Predictions - Dallas vs. Jaguars NFL Picks & Week 8 Vegas Odds: The Dallas Cowboys are 1-5 this NFL picks season, including an 0-3 NFL predictions record at home, they have lost star quarterback Tony Romo to a collarbone injury for at least 6-8 weeks and probably the rest of the NFL betting season, Dallas is playing a quarterback that has not won a game since 2007, and, yet, the Vegas odds have placed Dallas as -6½(-110) point NFL picks favorites at home in week eight of the NFL betting season. Wow! How mad are their week 8 NFL picks opponent the Jacksonville Jaguars?
Jacksonville (3-4) has lost by 22, 27, 25, and 25 points so, yeah, they are bad. In their 42-20 NFL picks loss last week to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Jags were outgained 426-300, outrushed 236-84, committed six penalties, and three turnovers. Forced into service due to injuries to Jacksonville’s quarterbacks, Todd Bauman performed admirably , with over 200 yards passing and 2 touchdowns, but the run game was stuffed and he did throw two picks, one for six. The defense was just as bad, the line was shredded on the ground and could get no pressure, and no turnovers. Another performance like the team had against KC and a fifth 20-point plus loss is probable.
The sum of the parts just does not add-up in Dallas this NFL picks season, and now with Romo out and Jon Kitna running the show, you would expect the whole thing to fall apart. The Cowboys are a top ten team throwing the ball and defending against the pass, but have trouble stopping the run and their running game is just inept. In last week's NFL picks match-up, the defense was torn apart by the New York Giants to the tune of 497 yards in total offense. Yet, the Cowboys were in the game in the fourth quarter as Kitna guided the team on two touchdown drives. With Romo out, the defense needs to show this week, and Kitna must protect the ball and hope his running game can get untracked.
However, with David Garrard cleared to start at quarterback and Maurice Jones-Drew running against that Cowboys defense, the Jags are poised to beat the Vegas spread on the road and possibly pull an upset NFL picks win, if a 1-5 can indeed be upset.
