Dallas Cowboys Betting Preview

The Dallas Cowboys come into this game off a bye week, but still sit at the top of the NFC East at 5-1 overall after winning their last five games in a row. Their only lost this season was way back in week 1 on the road to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Back in Week 6 Dak Prescott had a monster game, putting up 445 passing yards, 3 touchdowns and an interception leading Dallas to the 35-29 overtime against the Patriots. In that matchup, he suffered a calf injury and he’ll be a game-time decision for this Week 8 game.

All eyes will now be on running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pallard. Both of them last game combined for 27 carries and expected that number to increase with the backup quarterback playing or a banged up Prescott. The Vikings have done a horrible job all season stopping the run, so expect Elliott and Pallard to put up big numbers.

On the road this season, the Cowboys have the eighth best offense in the league that’s scoring an average of 28 points per game.

Their defense on the road this season has been subpar giving up an average of 25.7 points per game, which is still an improvement from their horrible defense last season.

Dallas is 6-0 against the spread in their last 6 games and the total has gone over in 5 of the Cowboys last 6 games.

Minnesota Vikings Betting Preview

The Minnesota Vikings come into this game sitting 3-3 overall and in desperate need of a big win here if they want any chance to try to make the playoffs this season.

Kirk Cousins had a huge performance last week, going 33 of 48 for 373 yards in the air, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in the 34-28 overripe time against the Carolina Panthers. But the most important player on this team is Dalvin Cook who last Sunday had 29 carries for 140 yards and a touchdown. Cook will now have to go up against this Cowboys defense who’s currently 5th in the league against the run.

Minnesota at home this season has the six worst offense in the league, that’s only scoring an average of 18.7 points per game, but their defense at home is ranked 3rd in the league, only giving up an average of 16 points per game.

The Vikings are 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 games when playing at home against Dallas and 5-1 straight up in their last 6 games against an opponent in the NFC East. The total has gone over in 6 of Minnesota’s last 9 games.
