*Odds available at FanDuel at time of publishing*

We're at FanDuel here because the people at DraftKings are too scared to give us a line on this guy. Imagine that. A sportsbook that won't even let you bet on something. It's sad. DraftKings isn't the only one though. BetMGM sat this one out too. That's how you know it's legit. I'm proud of FanDuel for offering it. They're good people over there.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prediction

Do you know anyone that will never admit when they are wrong? Like even when they do something so stupid that it's obvious that they messed up. Like signing a running back to one of the worst contracts in the history of sports stupid? That's pretty much what's happening in Dallas right now. We've got a situation where the better running back is playing behind another one simply because the owner doesn't want to own up to signing the old one. It's sad. Still, we may have a way to use the better back.

Last season, Tony Pollard barely even played but he was still able to go over this number eight times. He didn't even play 400 snaps on the season while Ezekiel Elliott played 855. That's crazy. Still, Pollard flashed in the passing game (rushing too really) and should be in line for more opportunities this season. Running backs in the passing game is generally dependent on the opponent but still, if they have the right one, it becomes easy.

Lucky for us, the Cowboys are taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tonight which are the right opponent. Partly because I think the Buccaneers can put up points which will keep Dallas in attack mode. The other part is because I bet the Cowboys will have a hard time running the ball against the Buccaneers (no team allowed fewer rushing yards to run-backs last season). But the Cowboys will still want to get their running backs involved so why not just throw it to them? Tampa allowed the second most receptions to the position last season. In fact, Pollard went for 29 receiving yards against the Buccaneers last season. This one will be done in the first half.
