Online Sportsbook Sets Odds On Eagerly Awaited Clash
Friday 30th September 2005
The Raiders and the Cowboys are two of the NFL's most loved – and most hated – teams. They meet in an early-season contest that highlights Week 4 of the season. Bodog.com lists the winless Raiders as 3.5-point favourites.
Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog.com, said: 'The Cowboys-Raiders game pits two storied franchises against each other. Even if these were the two worst teams in the league, we would want to watch. Both teams have talent, though, and this is going to be an exciting game.”
After suffering a disappointing 23-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Randy Moss and the Raiders are sure to come out hard in search of their first win. Despite being 0-3, the Raiders are favoured to beat Dallas (2-1), a testament to how well Oakland has played in its first three games of the season.
After securing a victory in the final seconds against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the injury-riddled New England Patriots (2-1) will look to capitalize on their momentum against the visiting San Diego Chargers (1-2). Bookmakers have the Patriots as 6-point favourites.
