Rams vs. Cowboys 2013 odds: Dallas favored at home against St. Louis

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Cowboys are a 3.5-favorite at home in Week 3 against the Rams.

The Cowboys will host the Rams in Week 3. Both coming into the game at 1-1, St. Louis and Dallas will look to get back to their winning ways after losses on the road in Week 2. At home, the Cowboys are 3.5-point favorites against the visiting Rams, according to OddsShark.com.

The Cowboys come into the game following a heartbreaking 17-16 road loss against the Chiefs. In search of another win, Dallas will likely feature the duo of wide receiver Dez Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray to get the ball into the endzone. Quarterback Tony Romo looked sharp last week and hopes to continue his solid play at home on Sunday. The Cowboys' new Tampa 2 defense will need to get stops against the Rams' speedy receivers to keep the game from becoming a shootout.

For the Rams, the defense needs get pressure on Romo to create turnovers. With defensive ends like Chris Long and Robert Quinn on the roster, that should not be a problem. Quarterback Sam Bradford will need to continue to utilize wide receiver Tavon Austin. The rookie had two touchdowns in the Rams loss to the Falcons in Week 2.

The Cowboys will host the Rams on FOX at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
