The Seahawks and Cowboys met earlier this season in Seattle but will play their rematch in Dallas on Saturday night in NFL Wild Card Weekend. Will the ‘Boys cover as a small home favorite and avenge their early-season loss?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Cowboys are 2-point favorites to beat the Seahawks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 43.5 points. As of this writing, 56% of the public betting tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks CB Shaquill Griffin (ankle) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys. It means Griffin will be out there against Amari Cooper and company. Griffin did not miss a game during the regular season.

Dallas Cowboys

Tavon Austin (groin) is questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against Seattle. Austin was active for the first time since Week 6 in the regular season finale. He should make his second straight appearance after making it through the practice week setback-free. Austin's presence will open up some gadget plays in the Cowboys' offense.

NFL Betting Trends

Seattle

The over is 7-1 in the Seahawks’ last eight games overall and is 4-1 in their last five playoff road games.

Dallas

The over is 5-2 in the Cowboys’ last seven home games but the under is 5-2 in their last seven playoff games.

Prediction

This one is simple to break down but not necessarily easy to predict. Both teams want to establish the run offensively and limit ground yards defensively. Both teams also execute that philosophy well. So, whichever team wins this game will be able to control the clock with their rushing attack and limit the opposition’s ground game. After Ezekiel Elliott rushed for over 120 yards on only 16 carries in the first meeting between these two teams, I believe the Cowboys will be able to control this game with their offense. Granted, Dallas lost that game earlier in the year in Seattle but I don’t expect the ‘Boys to get away from Elliott this time around as they did in the second half of that game. Amari Cooper is also a bad matchup for Griffin, whereas the Cowboys have the athletic front seven to slow down Russell Wilson and prevent him from making big plays down the field to Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett.
