    #INDvsDAL: Betting Preview, Trends, And Prediction

    For once, the Cowboys are not playing what feels like a do-or-die game on Sunday, needing just 1 win over their final 3 to win the East. This week the 8-5 Cowboys go on the road to face the 7-6 Colts, with each times vying for playoff spots in their respective conferences.

    Both the Cowboys and Colts have turned around what looked like dead seasons, but there is no doubt the Colts need this one more than the Cowboys do to keep pace for the 6th seed in the AFC.

    The Line

    Cowboys +3, O/U 47 points. 

    Dallas Cowboys

    The once 3-5 Cowboys are now head and shoulders above the rest of their division, after winning their fifth straight in thrilling fashion over the Eagles last Sunday. The team which seemed so disjointed and inconsistent through 8 games has found their identity, and is playing complete team football as of late.

    is coming off a career-best game in terms of yardage, and despite some poor turnovers is still playing some of the best football of his career. This is due in large part to two stars in and , who have shouldered the production load of this the last 5 weeks.

    And, of course, there is the which continues to make life a living hell for opposing offenses. is coming into his own as a pass rusher, getting another sack last week and getting flagged for what should have been his second sack of the day.

    Dallas is playing the brand of football they told us they would before the season, and are beginning to make their and decision makers look very smart in the process.

    Indianapolis Colts

    At 7-6 and fighting for the final AFC playoff spot, the Colts need this one more than the Cowboys do. Getting shut out by the lowly Jaguars two weeks ago may ultimately keep the Colts out of the , but a win this Sunday and a little help elsewhere could set them up nicely down the stretch.

    Indy has quietly one of the best passing offenses in all of the NFL, with star Andrew Luck playing his best football in quite some time. Luck is healthy and looks like himself again, and the selection of Quenton Nelson to sure-up the has gone a long way to improving this offense as well.

    Defensively the Colts have been even more impressive lately. Though they have a roster comprised of no-names nationally, the Colts defense is 11th in DVOA. has been a revelation for the Colts at , and their young defense seems to be improving by the week.

    The Colts are coming off of a big road victory over the a week ago, and will look to defeat the Texans' in-state rivals on Sunday to improve to 8-6.

    Trends

    • The Cowboys are 5-0 against the spread their last 5 games, and have won all 5 straight up.
    • The score total has hit the over 4 of the Cowboys' last 6 games.
    • But the score total has gone under 4 of the Colts' last 5 games.
    • The Colts are 4-1 straight up their last 5 home games.
    • Dallas is 6-3 their last 9 games against the Colts.

    Prediction

    The Cowboys' winning streak has to end at some point, right?

    Well, unlike Vegas, I don't expect that ending to happen on Sunday. The Cowboys have been playing desperate football over the last 5 games and they are well aware what a win over Indianapolis would mean.

    A victory would clinch them a division title for the third time in five years, and just as they did in 2014, I expect the Cowboys to get that clinching victory over the Colts. Give me the Cowboys and the points this week.

    Actually, I hope your statement about the Cowboys winning streak having to come to an end sometime is wrong, although I admit it’s probably true. But I remember a few years back when the Giants started their season poorly and then went on an 8 game regular season winning streak to make the playoffs as a wild card. They then went to and won the Super Bowl. That’s my dream this year for Dallas. What a sweet way to answer Philly’s first Super Bowl win that would be!
