Seahawks vs. Cowboys Prediction
The Cowboys will look to end their four-game losing streak when they host the Seahawks at 4:25PM ET tonight.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cowboys are 4.5-point home underdogs versus the Seahawks after opening as a 5.5-point underdog when the number was released. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 41.5 points after opening at 40.5.
Seattle is 3-4 straight up and 2-4 against the spread, while Dallas is 2-4 overall and 1-5 at the betting window. The Seahawks won and cruised to a victory last Thursday night as a 6-point road underdog in San Francisco, while the Cowboys lost and failed to cover as a 3-point road dog versus the Giants in a 27-20 defeat.
The Seahawks looked more like the team we were accustomed to watching the previous two years when they manhandled the 49ers last Thursday night. But the Seahawks still have some concerns, including along the offensive line where pass protection remains an issue. The Cowboys deserve to be underdogs, but by 6 points? They moved the ball much better with Matt Cassel under center last week in East Rutherford until the signal-caller started turning the ball over multiple times in the second half. The Cowboys might not win, but they should be able to cover the number at home. This spread should be more around two or three points, not six.
