Cowboys vs. Ravens Week 13 Prediction
The Ravens are now on the outside looking in when it comes to a playoff spot in the AFC, so they need a win badly on Tuesday night when they host the Cowboys. Will Baltimore also cover as a 7.5-point favorite or is that too much to lay versus Dallas?
483 Dallas Cowboys (+7.5) at 484 Baltimore Ravens (-7.5); o/u 45.5

Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
Andy Dalton completed 25-of-35 passes for 215 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to Washington. The Cowboys had a quality road win against the Vikings last Sunday, but they reverted back to their 2020 form on Thanksgiving. On the first drive, Dalton lost his left tackle and right tackle to injuries, and the offense tanked from then on. A few drops proved costly, but the real issue were the turnovers and play-calling. Dalton was pick-sixed by DE Montez Sweat and $90 million RB Ezekiel Elliott added his fifth fumble of the year. The Cowboys shot themselves in the foot with one of the worst-designed fake punts of our generation, too. It was an embarrassing game all around. If Zack Martin (calf) misses time, the Cowboys are in trouble. Dallas heads to Baltimore in Week 13.
Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Lamar Jackson (COVID-19) has a chance to come off the reserve/COVID list in time to play Week 13's game against Dallas. Jackson, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, missed last week's game against Pittsburgh. Baltimore's Week 13 game against the Cowboys was bumped to Tuesday, December 8 and gave Jackson a shot to suit up for a great late-season matchup.
Cowboys vs. Ravens Betting Prediction
As of this writing, we still don’t know if Lamar Jackson (COVID/reserve list) will start for the Ravens but whether he does or doesn’t, it’s hard to trust either side to cover. Thus, I see more value in the total – specifically the under. The under is 8-2 in the Cowboys’ last 10 road games versus a team with a winning home record, is 11-5 in their last 16 games coming off a double-digit loss at home and is 17-8 in their last 25 games as a road underdog. On the other side, the under is 7-2 in the Ravens’ last nine games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game, is 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home favorite and has cashed in four of their last five games coming off an ATS win as well.
