#DALvsDET: Betting Preview, Trends, And Prediction

The Line

Cowboys -3.5 O/U 51.5 points.

Dallas Cowboys

After suffering a devastating four point loss to the Vikings on Sunday night, the Cowboys will look to get back on track against yet another North foe.

Dallas now sits at 5-4, clinging to their first place spot in the division with the right on their heels. They have fumbled away four very win-able games already this season, and are running out of chances to take full control of their playoff destiny.

You can't necessarily call this one a must win for the Cowboys, but it's damn near as close as it can get to one for a week 11 game. Considering Detroit's record and , the Cowboys can ill afford to let this one slip away on Sunday.

It's one of the few games against a team with a losing record remaining on their schedule.

Detroit Lions

The 2019 Lions are a tough team to figure out. Expected before the season to be one of the worst teams in the conference, the Lions started out the season rather well.

They were “undefeated” (there was a tie) through the first three weeks of the season, and played the extremely tough. They also went on the road and had the on the ropes for four full quarters.

But, with all that being said, they now sit at 3-5-1, with their NFC playoff hopes just about destroyed. Matt Stafford is having one of the best seasons of his entire career, however, and is surrounded by an littered with receiving talent. If he's healthy and can play, he'll be a handful for the Cowboys to deal with.

Trends

  • The Cowboys are now 2-4 against the spread their last 6 games.
  • The score total has gone over in 5 of the Cowboys' last 6 games. It's also gone over 5 of their last 6 road games.
  • The Lions are 1-4 against the spread their last 5 games.
  • The score total has gone over 7 of the last 8 times these teams have played.

Prediction

Despite being on the road this week, I'm going to pick the to come out on top and cover the 3.5 point spread. At some point, talent has to take over for this bunch, and what a better day for that to happen than against a hobbled team?

The Cowboys have been far from perfect in 2019, but it's now or never if they want to rack up wins and start a playoff run.
