Cowboys Vs. Bucs Odds: Dallas A Touchdown Favorite

Will coming home solve all the problems that presented themselves in Dallas' 27-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday?

That's apparently what the odds makers in Vegas believe, as the Cowboys are -7 favorites in their game over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

But while the Cowboys have been as inconsistent as they were in 2011, the Buccaneers look significantly improved from the squad that went 4-12 last year and got Raheem Morris fired.

Under first-year coach Greg Schiano, Tampa stunned the Carolina Panthers, 16-10, in Week 1 before blowing a huge fourth-quarter lead to the New York Giants in Week 2.

The oddsmakers expect a reasonably high-scoring game, with an over under of 46.5. Coincidentally enough, that was the exact score of the two teams game in 2011, with Dallas winning, 31-15.

However, there appears to be more fight in the Bucs this year, as the core of a 10-6 playoff team in 2010 appears to have rebounded from last year's disaster.
