Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Saints are 7.5-point favorites to beat the Cowboys. The total, meanwhile, sits at 51.5 points. As of this writing, 62% of the public betting tickets are on the Saints to cover the point spread.

New Orleans Saints

Tre'Quan Smith (foot) was removed from the Week 13 injury report and will play against the Cowboys on Thursday night. All of Smith's big games have come at home in the Superdome, but this one will be played in a similar dome environment at AT&T Stadium. The upside is there, but the floor is just as low. Treat Smith as a boom-bust WR4.

Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys LT Tyron Smith (neck) will be a game-time decision Thursday night against the Saints. That is according to Jerry Jones. Smith was active on Thanksgiving but did not play any snaps. The Cowboys could rest Smith to make sure he is ready for an important divisional matchup against the Eagles in Week 14.

NFL Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Saints are a perfect 9-0 against the spread in their last nine games overall and have covered in four of their last five games played on Thursday.


The Cowboys are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall but are just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games.


The underdog is 9-2 against the spread in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and the home team has also covered in four of the last five meetings. This is too many points in a matchup of playoff contenders. The Cowboys are playing with as much confidence right now as the Saints and while this is a clash in styles, Dallas’ run-the-ball-and-play-good-defense philosophy suits a home dog. Oddsmakers continue to jack up the price on the Saints and now bettors are dealing with inflated lines when it comes to New Orleans. I’m taking the points in what should be a competitive game throughout.
