Cowboys with questionable loss

The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a 19-16 OT loss at Houston last Sunday night to drop to 2-3 on the year. Coach Jason Garrett elected to punt on 4th and 1 during the OT which raised the eyebrow of owner Jerry Jones. The Cowboys come into today’s game 2-3 against the spread while posting a 4-1 record with the under.

Dallas hasn’t been able to get on track on offense this year. The Cowboys are putting up just 16.6 points and 328 yards per game. Ezekiel Elliott is doing quite well, rushing for 480 yards and two touchdowns, but Dak Prescott is struggling. He has thrown for 961 yards and five touchdowns with four interceptions. He also has been sacked 16 times. Defensively, Dallas is giving up 19.2 points and 358.6 yards per game. The Cowboys have a strong pass rush with 15 sacks. DeMarcus Lawrence has 5.5 sacks while Jaylon Smith has three sacks with a team-high 41 tackles.

Jags beatdown in KC

The Jaguars suffered a 30-14 loss at Kansas City last weekend to fall to 3-2 on the season. Jacksonville is also 3-2 against the spread while going 3-2 with the under on the year. The Jags have covered the spread in all three wins

The Jaguars continue to be one of the best defensive teams in the league, allowing just 17.2 points and 310.4 yards per game. Offensively, Jacksonville is averaging 416 yards per game, but it is only leading to 20.4 points per contest. The offense continues to be without Leonard Fournette, who is out again this week with a hamstring injury. He has just 71 yards on 20 carries. Blake Bortles has rushed for more, as he has 166 yards. Bortles has also thrown for 1,525 yards and eight touchdowns, but also has seven interceptions.

NFL Betting Trends


The Cowboys have covered the spread in seven of their last nine games in October, but just 3-10 ATS in their last 13 against a winning team.


The Jaguars are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games following a failed cover and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games following a loss.


Points could be hard to come by in this game, as each offense is the weakness of the respective team. The Jags defense should be eager to erase last week’s outing against KC and I think they will do it against an average QB in Prescott. The Jags have a lot of questions on offense and face a Dallas defense that can rush the passer, but I trust Jacksonville to find ways to score more consistently. The Jags have put up 31 twice this year, they just had a bad showing last week. I think they bounce back this week.

NFL Prediction: Jacksonville Jaguars -3
