Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys: Point spread and odds

 It's the time of the week to look at the point spread and betting odds on the upcoming NFL games, starting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys Sunday NFL Week 8 game. Following a shocking loss last week against the Rams, the Dallas Cowboys (4-3) are without star quarterback Tony Romo once again and despite playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-2) at home are only a slight favorite.

 Looking at the latest NFL odds and point spread numbers posted by the online sportsbook Bookmaker, we see the Cowboys holding odds of just -130, while the Buccaneers will be a small underdog with odds +110 to win the Saturday game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys point spread is currently sitting at just -2 points chalk the Cowboys with the total expected by the bookmakers at -40.5 points. Keep in mind that according to the most recent NFL betting trends, Tampa Bay is 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games, but 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing the Cowboys. Dallas, meanwhile, is 0-5 against the spread in its last 5 games at home and the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Dallas's last 6 games when playing Tampa Bay.

 Injuries appear to plague both teams for their NFL Week 8 game, obviously the Cowboys in worse shape with Tony Romo absent from Thursday practice and rumor has it he will not return until mid-November. Cowboys running back Felix Jones, cornerback Terence Newman and linebacker Anthony Spencer also missed Thursday practice, but the rest of the team appears to be in good shape for Sunday. Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Maurice Stovall missed practice yesterday, along with running back B.J. Askew, while Warrick Dunn, quarterback Brian Griese and wide receivers Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard did a limited one on Thursday.

 The Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys game will start on Sunday at 1:00pm EST from Texas Stadium.
