The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Cowboys are a 1-point home favorite versus the Panthers after Dallas opened as a 1-point home favorite. The total, meanwhile, opened at 46 but is now sitting at 45.5 points.

Streaks & Records

The Panthers are a perfect 10-0 this season and are 8-2 against the spread, having won and covered in all four of their road games this season. The Cowboys just snapped a seven-game losing streak with a win over the Dolphins last week, but they still reside at 3-7 on the year and 3-7 at the betting window. They're 1-4 against the number in their five games at home this season.

The Pick

Romo breathed fire into a previously dormant Dallas offense in last week's win over the Dolphins. Despite being 3-7, the Cowboys are just two games behind the Giants for first place in a bad NFC East Division. In short, this game means more to the Cowboys than the Panthers, even with Carolina trying to stay unbeaten and ahead of Arizona for the top seed in the NFC playoff picture. The key today is if the Cowboys can get their rushing attack going against a stout Panther defense. If they can, they can sustain drives and rely on their 10th-ranked defense to make Carolina one dimensional and force Cam Newton to make some mistakes.
