Hall of Fame Game Betting

The NFL preseason kicks off Sunday with a Hall of Fame Game matchup between the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys that features a pointspread that’s been on the move. 
The Cowboys opened as the favorites, but as of Thursday afternoon the Dolphins were favored by around 2.5 points. The number varies from book to book, and several juiced-out alternate lines exist for the first football game of the new season.

* Editor Note: As of late Friday, it was being reported that Romo would not play Sunday, watch for line moves. The biggest storyline heading into Sunday’s game is Tony Romo. The Cowboys’ quarterback had a cyst from his back removed during the offseason and is coming along cautiously. Romo said this week that he wants to play against the Dolphins, but coach Jason Garrett has been indecisive about using his starter Sunday.
The hefty line movement toward the Dolphins would seem to indicate the betting market doesn’t believe Romo’s going to go. Or maybe the market just believes this game means more to Dolphins second-year coach Joe Philbin?
The Dolphins went 0-4 straight-up and against the spread last preseason. 
Ryan Tannehill also enters his second season with lots to prove, after an up-and-down rookie campaign. Tannehill will be backed up by veteran Matt Moore and rookie Pat Devlin. 
Kyle Orton will start at quarterback for Dallas if Romo is a no-go. Nick Stephens and Alex Tanney are the quarterbacks listed on the Cowboys’ depth chart. 
Garrett begins his third season in Dallas squarely on the hot season. The Cowboys are 5-3 straight-up and 3-5 against the spread in preseason play under Garrett.
The total was sitting at 34 points as of Thursday.
