Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Falcons are 3-point favorites to beat the Cowboys. The total, meanwhile, sits at 49.5 points. As of this writing, 57% of the public betting tickets are on the Falcons to cover the point spread.

Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys RG Zack Martin (knee) is questionable for Week 11 against the Falcons. As is rookie Connor Williams (knee). Martin was forced to leave for a brief stint in Dallas' Sunday night win over the Eagles, too. While Martin should tough it out (as he's done all year), the Cowboys would be wise to stick with Xavier Su'a-Filo over Williams at left guard even if the first-round rookie is declared active Sunday. Adam Redmond would fill in for Martin if the latter is unable to suit up.

Atlanta Falcons

Mohamed Sanu (hip) wasn't listed on the Falcons' final injury report for Week 11 against the Cowboys.He was scrapped from the injury report after returning to full participation at Friday's practice. Even with six teams on bye this week, Sanu won't have much fantasy appeal against Dallas. He's No. 44 in our receiver rankings this week.

NFL Betting Trends

Dallas

The Cowboys are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games versus an opponent with a losing home record.

Atlanta

The Falcons are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall and are winless at the betting window in their last four games when facing an opponent with a losing record.

Prediction

The Falcons are generally a tough team to beat in Atlanta but they’ve also already lost twice at home this year so it’s not as if Dan Quinn’s team is invincible inside of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. I expect the Cowboys to eat clock with Ezekiel Elliott, who should have a field day running against a Falcons defense that surrendered over 170 yards on the ground a week ago to Nick Chubb in Cleveland. While the Cowboys look rejuvenated following their win over the Eagles, the Falcons look like a team that just had their slim playoff hopes crushed last week. I like the Cowboys to pull off the upset but I’ll stuff the field goal in my back pocket in case the game is close.

NFL Week 11 Prediction: Dallas Cowboys +3
