We are opening this week’s NFL games line and point spread preview with the betting numbers on the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans match up. The Jaguars (0-8) have had an awful season so far and will certainly try to seize the opportunity to finally get a win when they travel the face the Titans (4-4), who are also having a shaky season up to this point. As many of you are expecting, however, the betting numbers are hardly favorable to the Jags.

Sunday football will mark the Week 9 NFL games and we will begin with one of the more anticipated games, Minnesota Vikings @ Dallas Cowboys, showing you the point spread, line and odds on the football game. The Minnesota Vikings (1-6) are in a real though spot this season, having recorded just one win and will travel to face off the Dallas Cowboys (4-4) who are still recovering from the 1-point loss in Detroit last week. Even so, the Cowboys will take advantage of the home field, according to the sportsbooks and if they are to be believed – will go above .500 once again.

At Bookmaker we find the Dallas Cowboys an absolute favorite to win Sunday’s game with money line -450, while the Vikings hold underdog line +355 for an upset in Week 9. At Bovada Sports the line is quite similar, the Cowboys big favorite to win the game there too. The Minnesota Vikings vs. Dallas Cowboys point spread is currently at -9.5 points chalk the Cowboys at both sportsbooks, with the total expected set at 47.5 points. Keep in mind that the Minnesota Vikings are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games on the road and the Dallas Cowboys have covered the spread just twice in their last 6 games when playing at home against the Vikings.
