Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Seahawks are 1-point favorites to beat the Cowboys. The total, meanwhile, sits at 40 points. As of this writing, 56% of the public betting tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.

Dallas Cowboys

Cole Beasley (ankle) will play in Week 3 against the Seahawks. Beasley sprained his ankle mid-week and was limited Friday. Even so, he'll be active for the Cowboys in Seattle. Beasley currently leads Dallas' skill players in targets (11) but has an extremely low ceiling given the team's propensity to run early and often. Ezekiel Elliott remains the only matchup-proof weekly starter among Dallas' offense.

Seattle Seahawks

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Seahawks are considering a "significant fine" for FS Earl Thomas after missing two practices this week.

Both absences were unexcused. It's the latest development in Thomas' ongoing feud with the Seahawks, who continue to rebuff trade offers for the disgruntled safety. Despite blowing off practice during the week, Thomas was present for Saturday's walkthrough and coach Pete Carroll plans to start him against the Cowboys in Week 3. Dallas has been the most aggressive team in pursuing Thomas and that would seem to be the 29-year-old's preferred landing spot, though ESPN's Adam Schefter still believes it's a "super long shot" that the Cowboys would meet Seattle's sky-high asking price. The Chiefs have emerged as a candidate for Thomas if he's traded before the Week 8 trade deadline.

NFL Betting Trends


The Cowboys are 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight road games.


The Seahawks are 1-4-1 against the number in their last six games overall.


The Cowboys have covered the spread in seven of their last 10 games against the Seahawks, are 4-1 against the number in their last five trips to Seattle, and the underdog is a perfect 5-0 at the betting window in the last five series meetings between these teams. Seattle’s offensive line is horrendous and Dallas has played better defensively than most believed it wound coming into the season. Plus, with how the ‘Boys utilized Elliott last week, I like them to pull off the small upset in Seattle.
