    What kind of spread do you think we'll see this year when we play the Cowboys?

    Its pre-season, I don't think it matters.

    Not really. The teams play their scrubs and I put no bearing on 2-3 series of starters. So why is that a bet worthy enterprise?

    Two games mattered..19-10....and last year..34-6 Dallas

    I bet on pre season games with buddies from Dallas. I've got a feeling that i'm not the only one either.

    Okay, I'll play this thread straight.

    The third game of the preseason matters because it is the game where the teams play their starters for long periods of time.

    And though people say that wins in the preseason do not matter, I will say that for a team that hasn't seen enough W's next to their names, the way they play and whether they win DOES matter.

    Good argument and I agree in part but I also always note that most of not all of the Cowboys SB teams walked away with losing pre-seasons..some winless. I put stock in evaluating talent and seeing guys get reps but I like walking away healthy. We have started many of our losing years winning the opener after our pre-seasons so I'm hoping we just have a healthy set of games. Considering I'm a split fan here if there are some good drives and we look sharp, I'm happy.

    My point really is that I don't find pre-season fascinating enough to gamble on or lose money on and they certainly aren't games, IMHO, that will matter.

    Don't know, but the Texans are one point dogs versus the Chiefs, says caribsports.com.
