Dallas Cowboys Betting Trends
The Cowboys are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games overall and are 1-6-1 at the betting window in their last eight games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game. That said, they're 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games coming off a win and have covered in seven of their last 10 games played in September.
Denver Broncos Betting Trends
The Broncos are 7-3-2 against the spread in their last 12 home games, are 6-0-1 against the number in their last seven games played in September, and are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game. That said, they're 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four games following a win.
OUR PREDICTION: If the Trevor Siemian that played on Monday night against the Chargers shows up today, I like the Broncos to pull off the small upset. Up until back-to-back turnovers in the fourth quarter, Denver was running away with that game against Los Angeles. The Broncos' quarterback and running back play were on point, and their defense looked like a unit that isn't in store for a regression like some believe. On the other side, the Cowboys looked sharp defensively against the Giants on Sunday night but New York has more problems offensively than just Odell Beckham Jr.'s health status. Denver is a tough place to win and with 71% of the tickets on Dallas, I'm going to fade the public.
