Hall of Fame Game: Cowboys vs. Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys face off in Canton, Ohio. If you've watched the Hall of Fame Game in previous years, you know both teams will sit all key players. But we'll still watch.

There's a line at BetMGM, of course. The Steelers are -1.5 against the Cowboys. The over/under is 33. It feels good just to see football point spreads. It's especially nice after NFL preseason football was wiped out entirely last year due to COVID-19.

The NFL cutting the preseason from four games to three might mean the two teams playing the extra game Thursday will use a few more recognizable players than they would have in past Hall of Fame Games.

The Steelers will use a few known quarterbacks in the game. Mason Rudolph will start and former Washington first-round pick Dwayne Haskins will come in next (he'll get at least the final two minutes of the first half according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Joshua Dobbs will finish it out. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin also said his rookies, including first-round pick Najee Harris, will play.

The Cowboys will leave 16 players dealing with injuries or other ailments back at their training camp site, according to the Associated Press, but Garrett Gilbert, Cooper Rush and Ben DiNucci could all see time at quarterback.

This Hall of Fame Game could be a little better than usual because the Steelers and Cowboys will treat it like the fourth preseason game, not the fifth. That means the over of 33 seems like a good play. All six quarterbacks expected to play have some level of NFL experience. Which team will win? That seems like flipping a coin, so maybe just take the Cowboys getting 1.5 points if you really want some action.

There are also prop bets on the game, and here are the three most popular plays according to BetMGM:

  • Will there be a score in the final two minutes of the first half? No (+220)

  • Will either team score three times in a row? No (+150)

  • Steelers first team to score 20 points (+200)

It really doesn't matter who wins or how good the game is. It's football.
