The Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in Week 3 of NFL Preseason play on Saturday night.

As mentioned in previous articles, teams are playing their starters for about half of the game before pulling them. Keep this in mind if you are looking to put some money down on tonight's game.

The Dallas Cowboys have gotten out to a poor start so far this preseason, as they have posted a record of 1-2, including losses in their last two games.

The Cincinnati Bengals, on the other hand, have gotten out to a strong start so far this preseason, posting a record of 2-0-0. The Bengals have managed to outscore their opponents by a total of 32 points in their first two games of the preseason.

Remember, though - it is the preseason, and stats don't mean much at all. For this reason, the Cowboys are 2 1/2 point favorites to win tonight:

Cincinnati Bengals, +2.5, -110
Dallas Cowboys, -2.5, -110

Next up, the money line, which is the odds to win the game straight up:

Cincinnati Bengals, +120
Dallas Cowboys, -140

So, a successful $100 wager on the Bengals would return a total profit of $120, while a successful $140 bet on the Cowboys would return a total profit of $100.
