Cowboys vs. Titans Spread Prediction

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tennessee Titans, 11/5/18 Week 9 Predictions

The Tennessee Titans are catching five points tonight on the road against the Dallas Cowboys. Are the offensively-challenged Titans worth a play as an underdog tonight or will the Cowboys cover the number?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Cowboys are 5-point favorites to beat the Titans. The total, meanwhile, sits at 40 points. As of this writing, 53% of the public betting tickets are on the Cowboys to cover the point spread.

Tennessee Titans

Marcus Mariota completed 24-of-32 passes for 237 yards with a touchdown and an interception in Week 7 against the Chargers. He added 38 yards on seven rushes. Mariota led the Titans to a game-tying fourth-quarter drive but failed to hit the two-point conversion. It was an improvement from last week, but Mariota continues to be a huge disappointment under a new coaching staff. The Titans had just three touchdowns in their last 45 drives going into Sunday. Mariota will be a QB2 coming out of the bye in Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys RG Zack Martin (knee) is questionable for Week 9 against the Titans. Martin played through the injury in Week 7, but it's a bit concerning he's still limited following the team's extended rest post-bye. It would be a downgrade for Dallas' blocking (its strength) across the board if Martin is unable to go. Geoff Swaim (knee) is additionally listed as doubtful.

NFL Betting Trends

Tennessee

The Titans are a perfect 6-0 ATS record in their last six games played on Monday but are 11-23 against the spread in their last 34 road games.

Dallas

The Cowboys are 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 Monday games but are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games coming off a bye.

Prediction

The Titans have struggled to move the ball all season but they have been solid defensively and benefit from facing a banged-up Dallas offense. With Martin questionable and the rest of the offensive line ravaged by injury, the Cowboys fired OL coach Paul Alexander last week but the problems remain. I don’t understand why the Cowboys are laying five points in this matchup, which should be low-scoring. The Titans may not snap their three-game losing streak tonight but I also don’t see them losing by more than a touchdown.
